Today's Good News

SEPT 8 – CALLED

09/08 Luke 7:24-27
After they left, Jesus talked to the crowd about John. “Who is this man in the wilderness that you went out to see? Did you find him weak as a reed, moved by every breath of wind? 25 Or were you expecting to see a man dressed in expensive clothes? No, people who wear beautiful clothes and live in luxury are found in palaces, not in the wilderness. 26 Were you looking for a prophet? Yes, and he is more than a prophet. 27 John is the man to whom the Scriptures refer when they say, ‘Look, I am sending my messenger before you, and he will prepare your way before you.’
CALLED
John was called of God to proclaim his message of a call to repentance preparing the way for Jesus. Now in our day Jesus has come nearly 2,000 years ago and we are charged by God to proclaim the message that Jesus loves you. Don’t forget about John but especially don’t forget the opportunity you have to partner with Jesus in spreading the Good News that Christ offers us the free gift of life when we believe in Him. Jesus loves you!
