Good News People - Week 1
In this Lenten series we focus on God’s good news and repent of the ways we have failed to live it out. Would our community recognize our church as good news? This series asks hard questions: Why did those outside the fold so often recognize Jesus as good news, but the religious viewed him as a threat? Have we abandoned the good news by putting our trust in political and religious leaders instead of in the God who alone can save? In reflecting on these questions, the congregation will be encouraged to respond with repentance.
Main Idea: Jesus brings good news to those who are suffering.
It is a beautiful message that demands a response.
Challenge: The good news offers freedom to those who are suffering. We should evaluate whether we are people in need of freedom, people who oppress others, or people who extend the gospel message to all around us.
