A Collect to Live as if the Good News is True

Lord Jesus, who spoke the good news to Israel that all the world might hear, grant us strength and willingness to step out and live as if the good news is real, that out lives would reflect the truth that you have spoken and the reality of your presence and goodness surrounding all things, through you who reigns in glory forever with the Father and Holy Spirit, one God of love and great joy. Amen. ‘Now after John was arrested, Jesus came to Galilee, proclaiming the good news of God, and saying, “The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God has come near; repent, and believe in the good news.”‘ – Mark 1:14-15
