April 2, 2021 - Good News! Great News!

In just a few days we will celebrate the good news of Christ. We proclaim the good news every time we celebrate Holy Communion. In the Great Thanksgiving we proclaim, “Christ has died; Christ is risen; Christ will come again.” If it were not so, we would not be here two thousand years plus later preparing to celebrate the resurrection. And it is Good News; it is great news. It is life transforming news.

The question is are you going to keep it to yourself, or are you going to tell others? When we look at the Gospel accounts, we find that Jesus told those who encountered him in the resurrection to “Go and tell the others!” Go and tell.

The Apostle Paul made this the foundation of his preaching. We see it in the sermons that scripture has captured, and we see it in his own testimony. In

1 Corinthians 2:1-2 he says “When I came to you, brothers, and sisters, I did not come proclaiming the mystery of God to you in lofty words of wisdom. For I decided to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ, and him crucified.” Paul was a man with one sermon. Paul’s sermon is our sermon, “Jesus Christ, and him crucified.”

Who do you know that needs to hear the good, good news about what God has done for us in and through His Son, the Christ? Jesus has told us to “Go and Tell the others.” Go and tell the good news, Christ is risen!

Oh God, fill us with the power of your spirit so that we can go and tell the good news. Amen.

Always, to God be the glory!
