Epiphany 5B 2nd Reading

Jim Edlin

How good is the Good News? According to Paul, it is the very best, most amazing, spectacular, deep-fly-ball-over-the-fence-homerun kind of news ever. Nothing is any better. The Good News of Jesus Christ is so good, he said, that it is worth some inconvenience in this life. He was willing to set aside his rights, to adjust his lifestyle and even to suffer in order to see it advanced.
