Best News

 

Jesus’ apostles were beaten and murdered for their bold witness, and they rejoiced to suffer for the name of Christ.

What was my reason again for not opening my mouth to speak the Good News?

They called in the apostles and had them flogged. Then they ordered them never again to speak in the name of Jesus, and they let them go.

The apostles left the high council rejoicing that God had counted them worthy to suffer disgrace for the name of Jesus. And every day, in the Temple and from house to house, they continued to teach and preach this message: “Jesus is the Messiah.”

– Acts 5:40-42 (NLT)

 

He preached without fear in the name of the Lord. He talked and argued with the Jews who spoke the Greek language. They kept trying to kill him.

– Acts 9:29 (NLV)

 

They stoned Paul and dragged him out of town, thinking he was dead.

– Acts 14:29 (NLT)

 

Always think about Jesus Christ. He was brought back to life and is a descendant of David. This is the Good News that I tell others.  I’m suffering disgrace for spreading this Good News. I have even been put into prison like a criminal. However, God’s word is not imprisoned.  For that reason, I endure everything for the sake of those who have been chosen so that they, too, may receive salvation from Christ Jesus with glory that lasts forever.

– 2 Timothy 2:8-10 (GW)

The Best News

must be shared

 

boldly

passionately

graciously

lovingly

 

for it is not by your own power

that you speak this News

 

but by the power

of God’s Spirit

 

He will quicken your mind

give you discernment

make you strong

and give you compassion

for those lost

and in bondage

 

You are the witness

to something glorious

something amazing

something unheard of

 

Sacrifice

Grace

Forgiveness

Heaven

 

Forever with God

The Best News

 

Sharing what He has done

for you

is a privilege

 

Speak

 

open up your mouth

and speak

 

trusting that when you do

regardless of the outcome

you have been obedient

and you have spoken

Hope

 

You are not a proselytizer

but an enthusiastic messenger

with the Best News
