It’s one thing to share our concerns with others. It’s another to offload our baggage of issues onto others with endless whinings.
When people are overwhelmed with bad news, their level of anxiety goes up, their level of confidence sinks. They hold their breath until they feel like they’re suffocating themselves. In the end, they cringe and frown. They faces are flushed.
When people are drenched with good news, their level of hope goes up, their level of anxiety drops. Their lungs suddenly draw in new fresh air. In the end, they smile, they move around and spontaneously engage into new activities with this burst of hope.
Jesus came to be the good news for the world.
The Holy Spirit is here today to remind us of Jesus, the good news for the world and the church.
Jesus is my fresh air.
