He Is The Good News
Plenty of bad news is floating around! In fact,
Thoreau had it right when he said, 'I suppose the news for the next hundred years
might be fairly accurately written today.' For the most part, as long as people have
reported news, it has been depressingly the same. Stories of murder; violence,
catastrophe, war, famine, pestilence, promiscuity, abuse, theft and financial ruin scream
at us from radio, television and newspapers.
But there is good news! It was first given in Eden when the sorrowful pair were
promised that a Deliverer would crush the serpent's head. It was later published in
the Good News Letter, (called by some the Holy Bible) and even proclaimed by Angels over
Bethlehem's moonlit plain. The good news is really a Person!
