What’s Your “30-Second Gospel?”
This weekend Fr. Chris asked us to consider what the Good News of God in Christ means for each of us in our life – and then share it with someone. (You can catch the sermon, “What have you been waiting for?” here)
Since that sermon, several of you have emailed your “30-second gospel” to Fr. Chris. Here’s a sampling of just some of the many ways we answer the question, “what is the good news to you?”
- For me, Jesus shows me what’s possible in a human life. He inspires me to be a better person each day, loving and serving as he did.
- The good news comes down to community. I know that I will never be alone. Be it the church or God. I will never be left to face my fears alone.
- God’s love for us builds the foundation to love others and live our life like Christ lived his helping others showing our love for both God and our neighbors.
- For me, it’s in the words: “It Is Finished” All of the nuances of ‘tetelestai’ – Jesus’ last word – converge together to communicate a beautiful truth – that Jesus completed the work of salvation once and for all. That means it is not up to us to add anything, complete anything, finalize anything when it comes to our salvation – Jesus did it all. So now, when we have put our trust in the finished work of Jesus, we can rest in confidence of our salvation and pursue God with our whole hearts.
- We should not spend our time judging the sins of others, nor beating ourselves up for not being perfect. Instead all that we need to do is to live each day into the Grace that Jesus’ sacrifice provides…
- Jesus is my everything. He is my whole life.
