Scripture:

We are glad you have chosen to join us today. May these verses of Scripture help deepen your experience of God this morning as well as be a resource beyond today.

Scripture: Romans 10:11-15

 

 11 As Scripture says, “Anyone who believes in him will never be put to shame.” 12 For there is no difference between Jew and Gentile—the same Lord is Lord of all and richly blesses all who call on him, 13 for, “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”

14 How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? 15 And how can anyone preach unless they are sent? As it is written: “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!”

"You Invite Me In"

 

I've been searching
Wandering and hurting
Ashamed of the shape I'm in
Afraid You'll see who I really am

But, You invite me in
Doesn't matter where I've been
Your arms are open wide
There's nothing left to hide

How can this be?
A love so unfailing
Reached down and lifted me
From ashes to beauty

And You invite me in
Doesn't matter where I've been
Your arms are open wide
There's nothing left to hide

For You invite me in
Doesn't matter who I've been
Your arms are open wide
Pulling me to Your side

And now I'm walking away
From the life I once knew
And running into Your grace
That covers my shame
Again and again, I find my life in You

You invite us in
Doesn't matter where we've been
Your arms are open wide
There's nothing left to hide

You invite us in
Doesn't matter who we've been
Your arms are open wide
Pulling us to Your side

Your arms are open wide


Everyone Loves Good News

May 24, 2015

 

Warm Up:

When you think of the word “evangelism” what comes to mind for you?

When you think about good news what comes to mind?

 

Diving In:

 

  • Romans 10::10-15 ends by saying “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news.” Can you think of a time when someone brought you good news? Or how about when you brought good news to someone else? And what about matters of faith? Who has God used in your life to help you hear the good news? Who has God led you to share the good news with?

 

  • What are the barriers to sharing the good news? Time? Too busy? Everyone you know is already a Christian? Don’t feel like you’re “good” enough yourself? Fear? Complacency? Other?

 

  • Why is it important to share the good news or to share Christ with people we care about?

 

  • It’s simply too good not to share
  • Everyone needs a tour guide or someone to help them along the way
  • It’s the best way to grow yourself
  • It is part of the responsibility/invitation of Jesus’ disciples
  • Other?

 

  • In his latest book “Simply Good News” by NT Wright, he distinguishes between “good news” and “good advice”. He suggests that Jesus came to announce good news rather than give people advice. How is this a significant clarification in your mind? Do you know people or places where the Christian faith has been simplified to a list of rules or things you have to do rather than this amazing news of freedom and grace in Christ?

 

Take Home:

There are two practical ways we can share the good news:

    • Know and share our story simply by being clear on this question: “What difference does Jesus/God/faith make in your life?” Maybe take some time this week to journal, talk with a friend, or pray about this.
    • Take the time to invite others by simply saying “Come and see” (Next Sunday we’ll hear incredible stories of real peoples’ faith lives – why not invite a friend to “come and see”. Or the following Sunday June 7th @ 10:30 am we are at the Brampton Soccer Centre and would be a great day to try the “come and see”.
