Good News!
Christian Devotional by Pastor Cecil Thompson

Pastor Cecil Thompson
Cecil Thompson

Acts 8:34-35

"The eunuch asked Philip, 'Tell me, please, who is the prophet talking about, himself or someone else?' Then Philip began with that very passage of Scripture and told him the good news about Jesus."

I am 75 and therefore enjoy a lifetime of memories—many of which I share with you in the Daily-E-Votionals. I still remember the good old days of radio when our imaginations provided the scenes depicted by sounds.

As a boy we lived near the Pacific Coast and were always on alert for a possible invasion. There were blackouts, rationing and stars in windows to signify that a son or daughter was in the service or had died in the war.

The world had just passed through the great depression and many families were still experiencing hard times. It was a time when we needed to hear words of hope and encouragement.

That was the opening statement of radio broadcaster Gabriel Heater, back in the dark days of WWII. In the time of darkness and doubt, good news was desperately needed.

In today’s Scripture, a eunuch from Ethiopia was discouraged by his inability to understand a passage of Scripture from Isaiah 53. It was into this scene that Philip arrived and told him the good news about Jesus.

With every dismal and depressing circumstance in our life, we need to hear words of hope from God’s Word; "Ahhhhhh, my friends! There's good news tonight!" Jesus is the good news, and we need to be the ones who hear that good news and also to bring the good news to others.

Blessings dear hearts. Draw near to God today, trust Him completely and be a blessing!
