My good news day

Since Easter, JR Woodward has made an excelent job on gathering so good people to post daily on good news for their city, since then we have been had very good articles with very good insights from different perspectives.
Today is my Good News day (besides my birthday also), so you can read it and comment.
These series will bring more people to post until Pentecost.

I wrote this same comment on JW Woodward's site about your Good News post. :

Awesome post. I read it yesterday, but did not have time to comment until today. Happy Birthday, one day late. I liked what you said:

“If it is time for us to spread the good news, it is time to live it out so that these people not only know the good news in words, but also feel the good news with loving actions. They need to experience the reality of the Kingdom of God that has broken in, in order to be a part of it.

For all who understand that the Kingdom of God is within our reach, know that we have plenty of opportunities to live out the good news. Not just within the four walls of the church, but in the world. It is time to live the good news to the point where people are overwhelmed with our acts of mercy and generosity.

And for those who are unable to see and experience all the beauty of what I have been talking about, yes, your sins are forgiven and the kingdom of God is here. And yes, there is hope! God is at work and is working on your behalf. So be faithful.”

How very true! Thanks for this post that reminds us what and how others in the world and in our own neighborhoods are feeling!

Thank you for your compliments and for your encouragement. It is so good to see this kind of moving that God is doing througout the church to make them vital for this world.
