Heard Any Good News Lately?

Good News!  Good News!

Yesterday I preached on the good news of Jesus Christ, the Son of God; our text was from Mark 1. I was also able to avoid every temptation to include a "Good News! Good News!" impersonation of Roscoe P. Coltrane.  God is good.

We all hear bad news.  It is everywhere.  We are reminded, though, that God has good news for us.  Maybe we just need to hear God's good news again.  That is what the Christmas season is about.  Now, since the Christmas season has not begun, at least not in the church, we look to the ministry of John the Baptist.  He knew the good news of God and prepared the way for others to hear it.  That was an important part to God's plan, apparently.  And it is still important for us today.

Are you tired of hearing bad news?  Then do something about it.  Do not let God's good news be pushed away by the bad news of your day.

In a nutshell, that is what yesterday's sermon was about: Hearing God's good news and preparing the way for other to hear it as well.

Have a listen and let me know what you think.
