All around us the news is delivered.
* The doctor announces the sex of the baby to the parents
* The judge reads the verdict from the jury
* The father reminds his teen children of the rules
* The teacher tells the class there will be a test tomorrow
And of course, we all get our news feeds from our news sources!
Yet, how much value do we assign to the integrity of those who deliver the news? How important is it that they are reputable and reliable? It’s essential, right? Especially if the news is very personal or impactful.
Yet of all the news we will ever hear, the “good news” is the very best news possible. That Jesus Christ came to this earth, lived a sinless life, offered up His life on a cross for our sins, and rose again on the third day is the most incredible message we could ever hear. It’s the gospel!
If we’ve received it, are we sharing it? As we do, our character does come into play. If we’re not honest and genuine, will that not affect the ones we share with? We don’t want to be a distraction to the main Attraction. As messengers of Christ, we really ought not get in the way of the message of Christ.
