Occasionally, we keep secrets for our own advantage, but other times the sharing of information is too important to keep to ourselves. One Mercedes Benz TV commercial of many years ago shows their car colliding with a cement wall during a safety test.
Someone then asks the company spokesman why they do not enforce their patent on the Mercedes Benz’s energy-absorbing car body, a design evidently copied by other companies because of its success.
He replies matter-of-factly, “Because some things in life are too important not to share.”
How true. In that category also falls the gospel of salvation, which saves people from far more than auto collisions. If you want to hear more of the good news that is too good to keep secret, why don’t you visit one of Arlington’s local churches this Sunday morning? It is for this reason of “too important to keep to ourselves” that I am so excited about how our church may explode with ardor when we begin “Unbinding the Gospel” this fall. Stay tuned and watch God at work.
