A Dreadful Day

Hebrews 10:31 – The first Good Friday was a dreadful day for Jesus, but it was the basis for our acceptance before God.  It’s a dreadful thing to fall into the hands of the living God, but, thankfully, Jesus went there for us.

How does the church evangelise?

Deut 4:5-8 & John 4:39-42 – Are we all alone in our efforts to evangelise?  Thankfully, no.  The church both adorns the gospel we proclaim and supports and helps us in our outreach.  What an asset the church is to our evangelism! Let’s make use of it.

The Goal of Evangelism

2 Corinthians 5:20 – The goal of evangelism is to be an ambassador for Jesus Christ. We are to bear witness to his message: “Be reconciled to God.” Genesis 17:6-7 – We are ambassadors of Jesus Christ as a part of God’s covenant community of believers. We don’t bear this message alone.

Forgotten?

Genesis 39-40 – Joseph’s life is the stuff of nightmares.  Betrayed, enslaved, falsely accused, imprisoned and seemingly forgotten – this is Joseph’s lot.  From this grim account, Christians can learn 2 facts about hard times: firstly, God is with us, and secondly so is temptation.

Revenge

Romans 12:19 – Is there any place for vengeance in the Christian’s life?  No.  Do we often, though, seek the downfall of others (at least in our minds!)? In Romans, Paul gives us helpful principles to fight against the urge to “get back” at that person.   Listen and grow.
