The original message of Jesus was so compelling that everyone who heard it wanted it to be true. Maybe the version you’ve heard isn’t as captivating. If Jesus truly came with an invitation that left no one out, wouldn’t you believe it was really good news?
The good news becomes good when we recognize we’re not all that good. This is the invitation Jesus gives everyone because He came and leveled the playing field. We all have the same opportunity to reclaim peace with God. Maybe today is the day you receive that invitation.
Every generation of Jesus followers is responsible to ensure the news of the Christian faith stays true to the original. So are you good news? What if you’re the only news someone gets?
But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord.” —Luke 2:10–11
