Good News

Daily Devotional2 Minutes

“How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him who brings good news, who publishes peace, who brings good news of happiness, who publishes salvation, who says to Zion, ‘Your God reigns.'” – Isaiah 52:7 ESV

It is something wonderful! In a world filled with unwelcome news, here is good news. A message that brings happiness. A message that blesses all who hear but also those who deliver the message.

What is so special about these messengers? The Bible talks about feet that are “beautiful upon the mountains.” What makes those feet so beautiful? They bring good news. They pro- claim peace and salvation. During times of worry and sadness, they can fill us with joy.

These truths are central to the Gospel, for this truly is “good news.” It is welcome because it soothes troubled hearts. It is a message of peace amid storms, a message of hope to all who feel hopeless, a message of salvation and victory, a promise of overwhelming blessings.

Do you know someone who needs good news? Who is discouraged? Facing problems? Struggling with health or financial issues? Needing direction? Burdened by sin? The Gospel provides the answer for people struggling with these and every other need.

Remember, Jesus came to bring this Good News to you and every person in every country – people of every age, every background. Remember this Good News in your life and also be ready to share your testimony and pray for those with needs as God leads you to be a messenger of the Gospel that others may hear the Good News.
