Be the Good News!

Daily reading: Mark 16:9-15
April 11, 2015

He said to them, “Go into the whole world and proclaim the good news to every creature.” Mark 9:15

This is Mark’s version of the great commission.  It is the call that every follower of Christ is given.  Once again it takes us from a stance of being an admirer of Christ to being a follower.

We proclaim the good news of Jesus in a number of ways.  When we feed those who are hungry we relive Jesus feeding the multitudes.  When we visit those who are sick or lonely we relive Jesus healing the sick.  When we gather together and study our bibles and talk about the stories we relive Jesus explaining the scriptures to his followers.  

We are called not to just tell the story of the good news but to embody it in our everyday living.

Prayer:  God help me to live the gospel message in word and action today.  Amen.
