The Good News Is the Best News
What's the best news you could possibly imagine hearing today?
That you've been approved to buy your dream home? That the medical tests came back negative and you have a clean bill of health? That you can retire years earlier than you had planned? That your children or friends have forgiven you?
What if the best news you and I could hear today is the good news of Jesus? What if the gospel really put all other bad news in our lives into a new perspective?
Here's how Pastor Timothy Keller sums up the gospel: "We are more sinful and flawed in ourselves than we ever dared believe, yet at the very same time we are more loved and accepted in Jesus Christ than we ever dared hope.” That's very good news.
