There Is Good News!

I get a few emails from news outlets. And most of those sum up the days news. And some of them… after summing the news of the day… they have a segment known as “in good news today.” The idea is, there is so much bad news, we want to give you some good news. The good news of the day is something encouraging… something up-lifting.
Proverbs 15:25 says, “Like cold water to a weary soul, So is good news from a distant land.”
We all need some good news. What is some good news today?
First, the best news of all is that Jesus loves us. Jesus Christ came to this world to die for the sins of mankind. Jesus loves all of us. Regardless of our past.. .our mistakes… our color… our nationality… our socioeconomic status… Jesus loves us all. That the best news today.
Second, we live in the greatest country on earth. Our nation definitely has it’s problems but, we are still free, thank the Lord. If someone has a business idea and is willing to work hard, they can start a new business and grow it into a profitable business. Thousands of people come to America in pursuit of the American dream.
Third, we are free to express ourselves. You want an example of that? Just browse social media.
Fourth, major advances have been made medically. Today, physicians and surgeons are able to do things that once were considered impossible.
Fifth, we have made major advances technologically. I am typing this column. In the past, someone would write a letter and then, give it to someone riding a horse. That person would take the letter to its recipient. Today, when I finish typing this letter, I will press a key and the power of the world-wide web will make this post available for anyone in the world to read it.
Sixth, people are still being kind to one another and helping people… although we don’t often hear about those kinds of things.
Jesus loves us… and thousands of Christians are expressing the love of Christ with others.
There is GOOD NEWS!
