Today's Good News


09/01 Luke 7:1-5
When Jesus had finished saying all this, he went back to Capernaum. 2 Now the highly valued slave of a Roman officer was sick and near death. 3 When the officer heard about Jesus, he sent some respected Jewish leaders to ask him to come and heal his slave. 4 So they earnestly begged Jesus to come with them and help the man. “If anyone deserves your help, it is he,” they said, 5 “for he loves the Jews and even built a synagogue for us.”
Jesus loved people. He loves you and me. His love transcends tradition, ethnicity, hate, stupidity, and racial prejudice. God is Love and Jesus shows His love by saving us. We don’t deserve His free gift but we need it and He will give us His free gift of salvation if we ask. Our choice. Choose Jesus.
