Have They Not Heard?
The Gospel is good news, literally. “Gospel” means “good news”. Back in the day, before everyone was texting and tweeting, before telephones and even telegraphs, news had to be carried from one place to another place by a person. The classic example is the town herald, sent by the king, crying “Hear ye! Hear ye!” to all the villagers. This is the way the Gospel is still proclaimed today. The King of kings has given us a message of pardon and peace that must be heard by all nations, not to mention our own neighbors.
His and yours,
