Remember the four men who had leprosy and went to the camp of the Arameans? They decided that if they were going to die anyway from the famine, they might as well enter the camp and surrender. They found that the camp was abandoned completely and they were rummaging through the tents. They ate and drank and collected silver, gold, and more.
Then something happened. They had this good news that they could tell the others but they were taking it all for themselves. They had not shared the good news. They decided to turn back and tell the people so that the others could share in the good news.
We too need to share the good news—the Good News. Many people have never heard of Jesus. Many people have heard everything but the Truth. We weren’t meant to learn about Jesus, get saved, and keep it a secret from the rest of the world. We are to go in the world and spread the Good News. There is hope—Jesus.
“Finally, they said to each other, ‘This is not right. This is a day of good news, and we aren’t sharing it with anyone! If we wait until morning, some calamity will certainly fall upon us. Come on, let’s go back and tell the people at the palace.’” – 2 Kings 7:9 [NLT]
