Messengers

Those of us

who have been resurrected

from our old way of life

 

are awakened by Good News!

 

And we are messengers

with a message

 

entrusted to us

by God Himself

 

It is our responsibility

and our joy

 

to make sure people get

God’s message

 

And what kind of messengers

would we be

 

if we didn’t deliver

that message?

 

Especially

GOOD

God

News!

 

May we be the messengers

we were meant to be

 

– Susie Stewart

 

For we speak as messengers approved by God to be entrusted with the Good News. Our purpose is to please God, not people. He alone examines the motives of our hearts.

– 1 Thessalonians 2:4 (NLT)

 

If anyone asks about Titus, he’s my partner and coworker in this ministry to you. If there’s any question about who the other brothers and sisters are, they are emissaries of the churches, traveling to bring glory to the Anointed One, our Liberating King.

– 2 Corinthians 8:23 (VOICE)

 

He said to them, “Go everywhere in the world. Tell the Good News to everyone.

– Mark 16:15 (ERV)

 

Now, brothers and sisters, I want you to remember the Good News I told you. You received that Good News message, and you continue to base your life on it. That Good News, the message you heard from me, is God’s way to save you. But you must continue believing it. If you don’t, you believed for nothing.

I gave you the message that I received. I told you the most important truths: that Christ died for our sins, as the Scriptures say; that He was buried and was raised to life on the third day, as the Scriptures say; and that He appeared to Peter and then to the twelve apostles. After that Christ appeared to more than 500 other believers at the same time. Most of them are still living today, but some have died. Then He appeared to James and later to all the apostles. Last of all, He appeared to me. I was different, like a baby born before the normal time.

All the other apostles are greater than I am. I say this because I persecuted the church of God. That is why I am not even good enough to be called an apostle. But, because of God’s grace, that is what I am. And His grace that He gave me was not wasted. I worked harder than all the other apostles. (But I was not really the one working. It was God’s grace that was with me.) So then it is not important if I told you God’s message or if it was the other apostles who told you—we all tell people the same message, and this is what you believed.

– 1 Corinthians 15:1-11 (ERV)
