How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the gospel of peace. Romans 10:15, NKJV

Gospel simply means “good news”—good news because its message brings deliverance from sin and condemnation, because its message lifts us to a relationship with Christ and prepares us for an eternity with Him. Today as you thank the Lord Jesus for the gift of eternal life (free to you but purchased by the precious blood of our Saviour) think of this simple acrostic: God’s Only Sermon Proclaiming Eternal Life. Don’t think too long. If you really believe the message, it’s time to go out and proclaim it! —Frank Burgess

Pass on and carry swift the news you bring:
Make straight the highway of the King. —Laura S. Copenhaver
