Do you like to spread good news? Does it excite you to tell someone when good things happen? Is there something you are looking forward to? Is your excitement bubbling out of you? Is it difficult for you to contain yourself?
There are times in our lives when we get so excited about something that has happened or will soon happen that we can hardly contain ourselves. It may be a promotion, an engagement, a birth of a child, or any number of other wonderful events.
As excited as we get about some events, it doesn’t last. Oh, it may last for a few days, weeks, or perhaps even months. But eventually the excitement wears off. Our minds are filled with daily tasks, chores, meetings, and discussions.
There is one event we should all be excited about. Actually, we might say two. The first is that Jesus died and rose again to be the perfect sacrifice for our sins. We are forgiven as we repent of our sins because of what Jesus did for us.
The second is His promise that we will spend eternity with Him. God has made a way to redeem us to himself and reinstitute a perfect relationship with him—as it was originally intended. We will experience only joy and love forever.
Aren’t those two events something wonderful? If we believe they are, we should be telling others about them just as we would one of the other wonderful events we are so excited about. After all, they will never go away, never fade, never be lost. Definitely something to be excited about.
I pray we all are excited to know our sins are forgiven. I pray we are bubbling over with excitement for an eternity spent with God. I pray each one of us will tell others about our excitement. Be excited. Be joyous. Tell others about your excitement. Tell others about Jesus.
Luke 24:46-47 He told them, “This is what is written: The Messiah will suffer and rise from the dead on the third day, and repentance for the forgiveness of sins will be preached in his name to all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.”
