Good news of God

Good news of God

You pick up the paper. You are the headline. Your faith in Jesus is the front page headline. Your life is the message and it points to good news. The city is ecstatic hearing the news. Everyone is stunned at how expectantly you await the return of Jesus the Messiah. You have been rescued and are no longer dead to life.

You are the news. Your faith in God is out!

Do you know that all over the provinces of both Macedonia and Achaia believers look up to you? The word has gotten around. Your lives are echoing the Master’s Word, not only in the provinces but all over the place. The news of your faith in God is out. We don’t even have to say anything anymore—you’re the message! People come up and tell us how you received us with open arms, how you deserted the dead idols of your old life so you could embrace and serve God, the true God. They marvel at how expectantly you await the arrival of his Son, whom he raised from the dead—Jesus, who rescued us from certain doom.
