People close to Jesus were convinced they had met good personified. So they documented the story. They were convinced it wasn’t just for a nation or for a generation, but for all nations and every generation. This was good news, great joy, for all people—perhaps especially for those of us who aren’t all that good.
We’ve sung it. We’ve said it. We’ve probably prayed it. As familiar as the words “God Bless America” are, there is something greater we are called to if you are a Jesus follower. And even if you aren’t, you’ll want this too.
