Thoughts of Devotion:
We are the messengers this morning! We are those who have been commissioned by the Lord to preach the good news of the gospel to everyone. We have good news for a world that is dark, hopeless, and in crisis. In Romans 10:15 it says, ” And how shall they preach unless they are sent? As it is written: “How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the gospel of peace, Who bring glad tidings of good things!” There is no more beautiful picture than seeing a crowd of messengers carrying the Good News to the poor and needy!
One may ask, what is this good news? It is a great privilege to announce the good news of redemption, salvation and peace to all mankind. The message is simple but powerful, Christ died for you, loves you and wants to give you eternal life! The heart of the good news is found in John 3:16, “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.” What beautiful news of a God who loves and desires that no one should perish, but come to salvation.
Now is the time to announce this good news, we cannot remain silent! If we do not do it, who will? No one else will do the job we should be doing. What God commissioned us to do, we must do so urgently and promptly. There is no time to lose, the time is now! The fields are ready for the harvest, the world is ready to hear the good news of salvation. All humanity has a deep desire to hear the good news of Jesus Christ in the midst of sad and desperate news. Recognize that everyone is in crisis and is about to face a spiritual collapse, only the church has the solution in Christ Jesus!
