The Best News {First Love}


The best news - not just for one time, but for all our days. The news that we need to base our whole lives on, for it is the best of news. The news that we are in great need of - each day and each moment.


"The Good News is about His Son."
(Romans 1:3a)

The Good News is that because of Jesus, we can be forgiven, loved, made righteous, restored to intimacy with God. Not just what we need at the time we place our trust in Him, but what we need every day of our lives. Every moment. What we are made for. And what Jesus has provided a way for. A way to give us back the song that we were made for. The song that says we are loved and we can be forgiven and restored to relationship with our Maker.

"We forgot our song long ago,
when we turned and ran away from God.
But Jesus has come to bring us home to God -
and give us back our song."

Can there be any better news? "The Gospel is Good News, not good advice." (Citylight pastor, Gavin) The Good News of what Someone has done for us. 

I am continually in need of this Good News. There are times when we take our eyes off of this news, and become overburdened with the busyness and the cares of life. And it is in those moments that we need to reach out and hold close this best of news. And sing the song that we were created for.

"For I am not ashamed of the Gospel,
for it is the power of God for salvation
to everyone who believes ... "
