The best news
And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Comforter, so that he may be with you forever: that is, the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive because it does not see or know him; but you know it, because it remains with you, and it will be in you. – John 14: 16-17
Good news is always expected and received with great joy. News of a better job, an increase in salary, and even more of the birth of a child. Among these wonderful news we need to include the news of the birth of that little boy born in humility, the true creator who became a creature, communicating his love in a concrete and visible way.
God did not send us a message or send an e-mail, but he himself made himself present in Jesus Christ, showing that he wants us with him. He came to make peace with us, offering forgiveness for the guilt of sins that led us away from him so that all those who confess their sins and believe in Christ as their only Savior may have forgiveness and eternal life. Is there better news than this?
THE PRAYER: Lord, thank you for the encouraging news we received, the news that Jesus came to save us, fulfilling what you promised. Amen.
