Day 31 - Jesus brings good news of happiness
Prophesied in Scripture: How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him who brings good news, who publishes peace, who brings good news of happiness, who publishes salvation, who says to Zion, “Your God reigns.” Isaiah 52:7
Fulfilled in Scripture: Jesus went on from there and walked beside the Sea of Galilee. And he went up on the mountain and sat down there. And great crowds came to him, bringing with them the lame, the blind, the crippled, the mute, and many others, and they put them at his feet, and he healed them, so that the crowd wondered, when they saw the mute speaking, the crippled healthy, the lame walking, and the blind seeing. And they glorified the God of Israel. Matthew 15:29-31
Of all the amazing miracles that Jesus did - speech for the mute, health for cripples, walking for the lame, seeing for the blind - none of them compared to the miracle of turning people's hearts back to God. Jesus through his love was able to do that. We have the same power of the Holy Spirit in us, and we can follow in his footsteps. The greatest happiness any of us can ever hope for is to intimately know God and lead others to Him. Let's gladly walk in Christ's example!
