Acts 4:18-19

"So they called them and charged them not to speak or teach at all in the name of Jesus. But Peter and John answered them, "Whether it is right in the sight of God to listen to you rather than to God, you must judge, for we cannot but speak of what we have seen and heard.""
Real, Good News

We know what is on the news these days whether we watch it or not. Political differences, opposing opinions or viewpoints, manipulative remarks, tragic events and maybe some neat and encouraging things here and there. Not to negate the good, but its easy to know a lot of negativity exists in our world.

We also may or may not recognize that we need to be careful with what we do see and hear, whether its new articles, news on TV or even simple things like advertising. Not everything that is promoted as good or helpful is good and helpful. Not everything that we're told is real or true is real and true. It could be a cover-up, lie or opinion. It cannot all be trusted.

What "news" are we holding onto and focusing on? Are we waiting for the next big story? Are we fearful of what is or isn't happening? Are we holding our breath for what bad thing might happen next that we hear or read in the news? Are we being over-protective of the people and things that are under our charge?

Or, are we focusing on and trusting in the real, good news that IS out there, that doesn't change, that is for all people, and that is so powerful and good that it can keep us steady through all of the ups and downs in our lives, cities, country and world?

A lot of us probably know of or about this good news being spoken of. Jesus Christ of course. Yes, absolutely! But is the good news of Jesus truly still good news to us?

Typically when we receive good news about something, we are thrilled! We are so filled with joy that we can't help but share it with others. It eventually wears off, but the neat thing about the good news of Jesus is that it isn't just for one day or one moment. It is for and every...single...moment!

Peter and John were told not to speak of Jesus again after being arrested. Their reply was that they could not help but to speak of Him...of what they knew was real, true and GOOD. It wasn't an opinion, it was concrete fact. Both of them were eye witnesses of Jesus' death and resurrection.

The bottom question we need to ask and answer is, "How good is the good news to me?" And, "Am I living in and sharing the freedom of that good news every day?"
