Sharing the Most Important News

Imagine this: You're out shopping and stumble upon a fantastic sale. What's the first thing you do? You excitedly call or text your friend to share the good news. "Hey, there's a sale going on, you should check it out!"

Now, picture a different scenario. You're at home, and suddenly, you receive a tornado warning on your phone. Do you keep this critical information to yourself? Of course not! You immediately contact your loved ones, making sure they're aware and safe.

Similarly, if you notice that your friend's car has a flat tire, you don't hesitate to let them know. You care about their well-being and want to help.

These everyday situations highlight an essential aspect of human nature: we naturally share important information with those we care about. However, what about the most crucial news of all—the message of salvation?

In the Bible, we're encouraged to share the Gospel boldly. Romans 10:14 says, "How then will they call on Him in whom they have not believed? How will they believe in Him whom they have not heard? And how will they hear without a preacher?"

Just as we eagerly share news about a sale or warn about impending danger, we should also be passionate about sharing the good news of Jesus Christ. “He is the way, the truth, and the life” (John 14:6), and “salvation is found in Him alone” (Acts 4:12).

Imagine if we treated the message of salvation with the same urgency and importance as we do with other news. What if we were as quick to share about eternal life as we are about a flat tire or a great deal?

As believers, we're called to be “ambassadors for Christ” (2 Corinthians 5:20). We have a responsibility to proclaim the message of reconciliation and invite others into a relationship with God through Jesus Christ.

So, the next time you're excited about a sale, wary of a storm, or notice a flat tire, remember the most critical news you can share—the love of God and the gift of salvation through His Son, Jesus Christ.
