Currently, most Americans (myself included!) are notorious for over-using exclamations.

But, due to our current vernacular, we understand exactly what those concepts mean in connection to the right context. And that's good.
Along those lines, it's important we understand that the Good News of salvation-sure, of forgiveness-won, of afterlife-guaranteed in Jesus isn't just an over-used exclamation; it really is phenomenal - especially as that news hits our hearts & refreshes our spirits in his grace.
