Good news!

There is good news today! As you've probably noticed the Mayan calendar was wrong, no apocalypse occurred and the earth is still spinning merrily on its axis. Not a great shock to most of us, since as some have pointed out, if the Mayans could predict the future...there would still be Mayans. Yes, yesterday passed much the same as each day has for millenia, since man first walked the planet. In some ways that's very good news... but in others not so much.

Early on, man disobeyed God, brought sin into the equation and the perfect world that God created was cursed. Henceforth we have lived in a fallen world with sin, death, destruction, and sorrow as ever present reminders. If nothing had changed, the earth continuing on in such a state today would be somewhat depressing. Fortunately for us, some 2000+ years ago, the ultimate Good News was delivered:

"And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a savior, which is Christ the Lord."- Luke 2:10-11

Check out this great video:

Joy to the world, the Lord is come! We have can have hope and a future because Jesus came to pay the debt we owed on the cross. Christ's mercy and His victory over sin is the best news there could be! What are you going to do with this Good News?
