Friday – Prophets

Reading – Isaiah 52-54

Highlight Verse:

“How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of the messenger who brings good news, the good news of peace and salvation, the news that the God of Israel reigns!”
‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭52‬:‭7‬ ‭NLT‬‬

You want to look beautiful? Here you go.

Seriously. When you’re filled with the joy of the Lord and share the Good News in a loving way, you look good!

When I was in college I attended a somewhat traditional church at first. They were good people and the Gospel was preached there, but there weren’t that many people on fire for the Lord.

I remember the first time I saw their choir perform. There was one girl who stood out among the rest. Sure it didn’t hurt that she was about my age and wasn’t bad looking. But she wasn’t the most beautiful in the group. But she was the most attractive.

Before you ask, no I didn’t date her. She left for another church not long after I got there. But what made her attractive was the fact that she was full of the joy of the Lord. Her passion for Jesus came out through her smile and her enthusiasm.

I am now blessed to go to a church that is on fire for Jesus and am married to a godly woman whose natural beauty is enhanced by the deep joy within her.

It’s my hope that people see that joy in me and hear the Good News that I talk about and want more of Jesus.

In what ways are you a messenger who brings Good News?
Do you have that deep joy that springs forth to spread the Good News?
