In the story about Jesus that we just listened to, we hear Jesus tell his 12 followers we call the disciples to go walking. He sends them on foot out from where they’re staying to hike into other towns and villages. Jesus wants them to preach the Good News.
What is the Good News? It’s Jesus’ message. Here’s the message. Jesus says, I love you, God loves you. God loves everyone – young and old, rich and poor. It doesn’t matter what you’ve done or not done. God loves you, God loves every one of us. Always and forever. So you are to love back by loving God, loving your neighbor, that means everyone you meet, and loving yourself. That’s the Good News.
