Today's Good News


4/21                 Matthew 28:11-15 

As the women were on their way, some of the guards went into the city and told the leading priests what had happened. 12 A meeting with the elders was called, and they decided to give the soldiers a large bribe. 13 They told the soldiers, “You must say, ‘Jesus’ disciples came during the night while we were sleeping, and they stole his body.’  14 If the governor hears about it, we’ll stand up for you so you won’t get in trouble.”  15 So the guards accepted the bribe and said what they were told to say. Their story spread widely among the Jews, and they still tell it today. 


The foolishness of the world knows no bounds.  One either believes in Jesus or doesn’t.  We cannot cajole folks into believing in Jesus and we don’t need to waste our time with people that are overly critical of others and not serious about their faith.  Our job is to tell the story of our relationship with Jesus.  The Holy Spirit takes that witness and uses it in the lives of those who believe.  Trust in the Lord with all your heart and he will always be near you.
