The Bad News

What is wrong with our world? As we look at the headlines in the newspaper each day, it is evident that things are not as they should be. But the problem isn’t simply out there, with others. If we are honest, we come to the realization that our own hearts are not as they should be. Scripture explains our condition, pointing to the sin that exists in all of us. This is the bad news, but Paul’s letter to the Romans points us to the good news of Jesus.

Is Anyone Too Lost to Be Found?

If there was ever a man who seemed like a lost cause, it was Saul of Tarsus. He hated Christ-followers with an unholy passion, and was determined to halt the spread of the gospel by any means necessary. If you had met him, you would have thought a person like this was beyond redemption, but God knew otherwise. His dramatic conversion shows us that no one is too lost to be found. Whatever mistakes you’ve made, and however far you’ve strayed, there is forgiveness in Jesus Christ,

A Hospital for the Healthy?

Can you imagine a hospital that only treated the healthy? What about a church that only welcomes those who are perfect? Jesus reminds us that there are no perfect people, we all need his grace and forgiveness. The church should be reaching out to broken and hurting people with the gospel.

God’s Grace Is Sufficient

We have been exploring practical ways the grace of God changes us, when we come to discover His unmerited favor in our lives. In 1 Corinthians 12, we learn that the grace of God not only saves but sustains us through the challenges and difficulties of life. When we think we can’t go on, the Lord fill us with strength, as we trust in Him.

Grace Fills Us with Gratitude

We have been exploring practical ways the grace of God changes us, when we come to discover His unmerited favor in our lives. One of the first things we should notice in a person who experiences the blessings of God is overflowing gratitude. We see both an expression of thankfulness, and a lack of thankfulness in this week’s passage.

The Prophet Who Got A Second Chance

The book of Jonah teaches us that a day of judgment is coming. Human beings are accountable to God for the way we spend our lives, on this earth. For the people of Nineveh, their day of reckoning had come. The prophet announced a message of doom, in 40 days the great city would be destroyed. But God is not only just, He is also willing to forgive. Jonah’s warning urges people in every age not to wait until it is too late to cry out to the Lord in repentance in faith.

The Prophet Who Ran Away

You cannot run from God. This was a lesson the prophet Jonah had to learn the hard way. God called him to go to Nineveh, but he did not want to obey, so he jumped on a boat heading in the opposite direction. We may flee from the Lord because we don’t want to deal with our failures, or because we do not want to surrender our lives to God’s will. No matter how determined we might be, we can’t get away. Sooner or later we must face Him, so instead of running from God we should run towards His arms of grace.

This week we talked about why the message of Gods grace is so important to us. Scripture shows us that we are saved by grace, not our works, leaving no room to boast.
