Tuesday 2nd April

Isaiah 52:7 How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of the messenger who brings good news, the good news of peace and salvation, the news that the God of Israel reigns!

I wonder if we realise what good news we have to share?

We are so often reluctant, hesitant, nervous about mentioning faith, church, Jesus to our friends for many different reasons and yet when something else exciting happens in our life - from as dramatic as getting engaged to as everyday as the new season of our favourite show is starting again we can’t wait to tell anyone and everyone!

We have news that brings life, freedom, forgiveness and so much more and this news is good for the city.

The rest of this chapter speaks about Jerusalem coming alive, being awakened and finding freedom and salvation and this is our longing for our city today. So let’s pray that we may have the opportunity to be beautiful to someone today who needs hope and life.
