As we receive ‘Good News’ from You, may we sing ‘songs of joy.’
We thank You, Lord, for Your ‘Good News’ - Help us to ‘shout for joy’. As we receive ‘Good News’ from You, may we sing ‘songs of joy.’ We thank You for the Good News of Your reign - ‘Your God reigns’ and the Good News of our redemption - ‘The Lord has redeemed’ us. Help us not to keep the Good News to ourselves. This ‘news of happiness’ is to be shared with everyone. May we let ‘all the ends of the earth see the salvation of our God’. ‘Christ died for our sins’ - This is Good News. Christ was ‘raised on the third day’ - This is Good News. ‘Jesus is Lord’ - This is Good News. This is the Good News we must ‘pass on’ to others. In our world, Lord, there is so much bad news. Help us not to let the Good News be drowned out by the bad news. Help us to make sure that the people hear the Good News - loud and clear (Isaiah 52:7-10; 1 Corinthians 15:3-4; Mission Praise, 249).
