Jesus is the good news.

What a theater performance Steve Munsi put up for the crowd. And Joel Osteen also, people just love his stuff. They all the same. Even Jesus himself, that friend of sinners, sitting with drunkards and talking with prostitutes. The other day at someones wedding, he turned water into wine. Can you imagine? People are drowning and he walks on water? What was he thinking? He even ruined a rich man’s pigs business, when he cast out demons from a crazy man.
And whats this healing the sick on a Sabbath day I heard? We really need to get rid of this man. 30 Pieces of silver would seal the deal. We already checked out his accountant. Would be easy as pie. Come Friday look for the kiss. All is set, we not risking another adulterous fiasco. This time we will hit the nails on his hands and feet. And put him in the middle of those miserable thieves. That would make a nice front page photo. Whatever it takes we need to preserve out tradition and status quo.
Friday came and it was a bloody show, but when they lifted the king of the Jews, the light of the world went out. This was God’s foolish plan to save a dying humanity. Dead and buried the healer was laid to rest. All he did was good, but they paid him with evil currency. It was finished. But not God’s plan, written and spoken long ago when Hosea said after two days will he revive, and on the 3rd day will he arise and live again. And so it happened when Christ rose from the dead to fully restore hope for eternal life, for everyone, who would believes in his salvation name.
The devils shamed lost and defeated, but Jesus Christ won his Fathers love and attention when he said: This is my beloved son in whom I am well pleased. Do the same and praise his name, give thanks to God for his gift and grace, while you still have a chance to change your mind and destiny. Heavens refreshments are so much better than a summers day boiling without shade or shelter. Joy to the world a Savior king was born. And peace to him who will come again. Bethlehem star, my morning star, you will always shine brighter than the many lights of all the world.
