Our Good News

Our task is to tell others how to repair the brokenness in their lives. Jesus came to restore our relationship with the Father. Now it is up to us, to lead others toward that reconciliation – to tell them they can have hope for the future, and that they do not have to live in despair.

The world is desperate for the message of salvation. If only we will take the time to share what we know, we will see lives changed before our very eyes: the poor will become rich, the homeless will have shelter, the sick will be healed, and the lost will be found. People will discover the hidden purpose and meaning of their lives. No longer will they have to look to those around them to find joy and satisfaction; they will have the peace and comfort of the Father within them at all times.

Sometimes, you and I take for granted all that God has done in our lives: the many times our health has been restored, our finances have been repaired, our prayers have been answered, our emptiness has been replaced, and our losses have been returned.

What God has done for us, He wants to do for others. Incredibly, He can use our brokenness, to show the power of His word. But, the world will never understand, until we tell them the “good news.”

So true! God uses all of our obstacles & brokenness to glorify His power - there is such power in our testimonies, and you two have an awesome one of God's faithfulness. Thanks for sharing.

What a great reminder, Denise! I was just reading the story of Noah for a Sunday school lesson tomorrow.

One of the questions I came across in my materials was - do you care about those dying without Hope around you? Are you praying for the lost and seeking out chances to share with them?

I want to be more open to that!

Thanks for the 2nd encouragement of my day to be more aware...

Blessings,
Melanie
