I enjoy social interactions and also time with friends, but often the sharing of bad news gets me down and makes me crazy. The world’s a mess because Satan is very busy making a mess of this world. I don’t need to read every article and every detail about some horrific crime.
Paul wrote, “Take no part in the worthless deeds of evil and darkness; instead, expose them. It is shameful even to talk about the things that ungodly people do in secret.” (Ephesians 5:11-12, NLT)
As a Christian, my job is to share the good news of Christ; to share hope, encouragement, and light to a world living in darkness. I’ve lived through some terrible things, but God has restored and redeemed what the enemy meant for evil. Jesus Christ saved me! My God is bigger than anything or anyone! I have good news to tell! Will you join me? Please.
If we would share the good news can you imagine how encouraged we would all be? How excited we would be for the future because we would know our amazing God was doing amazing things. Oh my, if we would share how God is working in each of our lives, we would be having praise parties every moment of every day.
Please share good news. Share how God is working in your life. Share the hope of Christ. Share of God’s mighty deeds. Share the praises. Share encouragement. Share good news. Please, please share The Good News!
