Passage: Ephesians 2:1-10
Good News People know that life begins and ends with Jesus. We know that for all the offerings of the world, nothing can truly provide us with lasting value. But Jesus doesn’t just give us life, He gives us something even greater – a life of purpose and meaning. “For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works…”
It’s a big world, full of so many different hills and valleys, twists and turns. Such complexities and challenges can quickly remind us that we are fragile people. Our efforts to self-comfort, and self-protect, quickly run out as soon as the stock market tumbles or the toilet paper runs out. Life brings great uncertainty, but Christ brings great assurance! As people called to be united together in Christ, we have been set a part as something different – we are called to be Good News People in a troubled world. Let’s live with such undaunted faith and joy!
