The Good News

When I moved to Texas, I discovered something called “Dublin Dr. Pepper,” and it changed my life. As a lifelong connoisseur of Dr. Pepper, enjoying it in its original form with real sugar was a game-changer. If you haven’t tried it, DO IT! As soon as I discovered it, I started telling everyone about it. I had this incredible good news that I felt the world needed to know.

When we discover God or truly enter into a relationship with Him for the first time, it’s kind of like my first sip of Dublin Dr. Pepper… except it’s obviously infinitely better. It’s life-changing. When we know something super awesome that will make other people’s lives better, we have to tell them. It’s not something you want to keep secret. Yet, so often with God, that’s exactly what we do.

We have all been called to the priesthood… no, not all of us are called to be a part of the ministerial priesthood (the guys we typically think of as priests), but we’re ALL called to the common priesthood. We’re called to share our faith with those around us. We’ve heard the Good News, and now we have to let everyone know… so stop keeping it a secret.
