Let’s Not Remain Silent of Good News
Scripture 2 Kings 7:9 Then they said to one another, “We are not doing right. This day is a day of good news, and we remain silent. If we wait until morning light, some punishment will come upon us. Now therefore, come, let us go and tell the king’s household.”
Observation: The true good news that Jesus has saved us from our sins and all we have to do is receive it with our hearts has been kept silent by us for too long. How many people do we meet in a day but keep quiet about the good news of Jesus? I know I am guilty and I realize it is not proper in some situations, but what does proper compare to someone going to hell because we kept our mouths shut? We are content to keep the good news to ourselves, because we know we are going to be with the Lord, but a time will come when we have to account to our Lord why we didn’t share His love with others.
Application: I can bring up the Lord with the people in church or if someone else asks me. I can even stand before many people in church and proclaim His love to those who know Him, but can I tell those in this world who are starving for His grace where to eat, instead of hording His mercy and grace to myself. I need to be bold with the faith God has placed in my heart and go out on a limb to tell others about the Salvation that only comes from my Lord. That is why I’m still here to proclaim the good news of Jesus.
Prayer: My Lord give me the courage to speak boldly in your name to others. Expand my territory to touch the lives of those you but in my path. Show me how to please you and help fill the kingdom with your children and be the good witness you call me to be.
