8th– 9th July
“I have had one message for Jews and Greeks alike – the necessity of repenting from sin and turning to God, and of having faith in our Lord Jesus.”
The Gospel is simple. It is not over complicated and doesn’t need to be. Paul had a burning desire to share this Gospel, even at the sake of his own persecution and suffering. He was beaten, imprisoned and experienced all kinds of suffering, just so he could tell people, of the love of God shown to us by Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross, resulting in the forgiveness of our sins.
Paul even counted his life as nothing, but being a vessel to share this message. Even as he traveled back to Jerusalem, knowing full well the persecution awaiting him there, he was filled with so much joy in sharing the Good News and grace of Jesus Christ.
Friends the message of Christianity is so simple: repent of your sins, have faith in Christ, and receive the unconditional, everlasting, grace and love of the Creator of this world. There are so many people across the world who need to hear this truth. Paul said he was ‘bound by the Spirit’ to share this wondrous truth. Are you? Are you willing to share this message with people all around you too?
