Sharing the Good News - Acts 20:24

Acts 20:24 -- "However, I consider my life worth nothing to me; my only aim is to finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me—the task of testifying to the good news of God’s grace."

When Jesus walked the earth and was then crucified as the ultimate sacrifice for our sins, everything changed. Jesus became the bridge to God that humanity was missing before. God no longer had to dwell in human made temples, now He can dwell in God-made humans -- in you and in me.

This is Good News!

When we invite Jesus to come into our heart, it is not a trivial occurrence. It is a power that can and will change your life.

Jesus began something great while He walked the earth - He shared more about who God is, His judgment, His mercy, but most of all, His love.

When we live for Christ, His mission becomes our mission - to spread the Good News of God's grace. Our ultimate purpose is to love God and to love others. There are many unique ways God calls us to fulfill that purpose, some are close to home and others are in unknown lands, some are public figures and leaders and others in the quiet of their own home.

No matter where God has called you to serve, your purpose is the same - to receive the light God shines on you and let it shine over others. You will find no greater peace or joy than when you align your purpose with His purpose for you.
