Good News People - Week 2
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: Human power and authority are unreliable, but God’s good news is a source of freedom to all who put their trust in him.
Challenge: The good news forces us to reconsider where we place our trust. Do we trust in God or in human leaders? The church should model trust in God alone.
