Share the Good News!

Every day I hear bad news on TV and read about sad things in the newspaper. So I am excited when a friend says to me, “Boy, do I have good news for you!”
Our Bible verses today were written by the prophet, Isaiah. In verse 1b he said, “The Lord has chosen me to tell good news to the poor and to comfort those who are sad.” Throughout the book of Isaiah we can read the good news that God would send His Son, Jesus, to die for all people.
That good news happened when Jesus came to earth to live, die and rise from the dead. Because of that, we can have forgiveness and live forever with Him. That is the best news of all!
If you are a Christian, you have the responsibility to share that good news with other people. That news will comfort and encourage people who are sad and without hope. Who will you share this news with today?
