Share the Good News

Christians are called to follow Jesus’ example in words and actions.

Matthew 4:23

Jesus went around all of Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, proclaiming the gospel of the kingdom, and curing every disease and illness among the people.

+++

This was Jesus’ mission.

He proclaimed the “gospel of the kingdom” and he healed people.

And what is the “gospel of the kingdom”?

I would say it’s the good news of God’s unconditional love for all.

Do you believe that?

It’s seems so hard to believe when so many of our human relationships seem to be based on reciprocity: I’ll like you if you like me.

I’ll do something for you if you do something for me.

However, with God…it’s all one-sided.

We are loved without any conditions.

When you know this…really know it in your heart…you melt.

That’s how it feels.

For me…I just want everyone to know and experience that love.

For Christians (as in followers of Jesus), this is what we are called to do.

Sharing God’s love requires more than words.

It requires action.

When we go out each day…we are meant to bring healing to those who are broken or sick.

We are wounded healers…those who know what it’s like to be in need of healing…who agree to be instruments of God’s healing grace to others.

May it be so!
