I met for lunch Tuesday with several other area ministers. I arrived a bit late and one of the ministers was just reporting some good news in his family. He turned to me and asked, “So, what’s the good news?” Catching me off guard, I thought for a moment, then announced, “Jesus is risen from the dead!”
Can you think of any better news than that? Because Jesus is risen:
- We have hope of life after death, as well.
- Our sins are paid for and we are eligible for pardon.
- Satan has been defeated.
- Jesus today intercedes on our behalf.
- He can keep His promise to send another Comforter (the Holy Spirit).
- We get to celebrate His life every day.
When you check out the newspaper or CNN today, remember what the really good news is.
