How do we live out and share with others this Good News? From John 3:16 we see 3 aspects of the Gospel/Good News:
1. LOVE — “God is Love” (1 John 4:8) God shares His incredible, unconditional, powerful love with us. As it says, “For God so loved the world.”
2. FAITH — We believe, have faith, in God and His promises. We are called to be believers, not doubters. This is an active faith. “We walk by faith, not by sight” (2 Cor. 4:7).
3. LIFE - God is Life - “I am the way, the truth, and the life” (John 14:6). We were dead, separated from God because of our sins, but through Jesus Christ, He made us alive! (see Eph. 2:1-6).
We see this good news, this love, faith, and life lived out and shared with others through all the things we do and say as a church:
Prayer, Worship, Learning (Christian Ed), Fellowship, Service, Evangelism (see Acts 2:42-47)
In closing, let me again mention a couple of new things that are coming up in the life of our church. First, you will see the current Session of our church, the elders, briefly kneeling in prayer at the altar just prior to the beginning of Sunday morning worship. This is to humble ourselves before the Lord and request His blessings upon our worship, our church, our families, our nation, and any current church need. We hope you will join us in prayer from the pews as we prepare our hearts for wor-ship, and ask for God’s hand of blessing.
Second, the Billy Graham, My Hope America training session is coming up on Sunday, July 28, at 7pm. Please be in prayer for this outreach ministry where people of our church will invite others to their home to hear the gospel presented. We’ll share more about this ministry at worship and in depth at the training session. Let me know if you’re interested.
It is indeed a privilege and joy to live out and share this glorious Good News with you, the Spring Creek Church family, on a daily basis. God is blessing us beyond measure and it is exciting to consider what He will do in our midst in the future.
In Christ’s Great Love,
