Rolling into the third week of April, we’re rolling through our series on LOVE! So far, we’ve covered why God loves us and how Christ showed his love to us through dying on the cross for our sins (which, remember, are anything we say, do, or think that doesn’t please God). This week for WORD + WORSHIP, we’re going to continue our discussion of the gospel and trace it back to its roots. But first, let’s praise!
Praise is one of the most important aspects of our relationship with God. Psalms 150:6 says, “Let everything that has breath praise the Lord. Praise the Lord!” Click the following songs and sing along. Let God hear YOUR praises! Thank Him for sending His Son to die on the cross for YOUR sins and bring you out of your life, your situation, your sin. All to be with him.
In this video, we trace the origins of the word “gospel” and how it ties the story of the Old Testament together with the story of Jesus and his announcement of God’s kingdom. Jesus brought God’s rule and reign to the world in a very upside-down way, which is the best news you could ask for.
Let’s look at a prophecy Jesus fulfilled to show this Bible tracing in action. Read Isaiah 61:1-2 and Luke 4:18-19. These two passages show the prophesy of Christ’s coming to heal the brokenhearted fulfilled.
Meditating on God’s word helps us to learn from Him and grow closer to Him. Read these questions and use a journal or sheet of paper to jot down your thoughts and/or responses. You can save these to reference back later or help you to develop your thoughts.
- What was Jesus communicating when He claimed that Isaiah 61 “is fulfilled in your hearing?” (Lk 4:16-21)
- In what ways does Christ’s life and ministry explain and expand on this passage?
- Why is it important that we both speak about the good news and bring it to life? (vs. 1-3)
- Are we called to live the same kind of life and do the same kinds of things Jesus did? Why or why not?
- How can Jesus practically help the poor? The brokenhearted? The captives? The mourners? (vs. 1-3)
- What is one way you can bring the good news of Jesus to life this week?
- How can you respond to this passage in your relationship with God (Up)? In your relationship with those in the church (In)? Or, in your relationship with those outside the church (Out)?
It’s important to remember that praying to God is intimate. We really are speaking to Him. God wants to hear our praises, and He wants us to tell us what we need help with. At Destiny, we give new prayers the R.A.C.E. model made by our Executive Ministries Director Cynthia Womack to get a good start. We’ll also give you a prayer below to model what the R.A.C.E. model may look like with the passage we just read. Pray about what God is inviting us to do.
R – Raise Him up
A – Admit your sins
C – Count your blessings
E – Express your needs
Here’s A Prayer You Can Use:
Heavenly Father, my understanding is so limited of all You are and the untold mysteries that surround the triune Godhead and the incarnate Word of God, and yet You loved me so much that You came in the Person of the Lord Jesus Christ to die for my sins.. so that I might receive the good tidings of great joy which have been given to for people.. so that by grace through faith in Him I have been forgiven of my sins. Thank You for binding up my broken and bleeding heart. Thank You that in Christ I have been set free from the bondage to sin, the curse of the Law and enslavement by Satan. Thank You, in Jesus name, Amen.
THE GOSPEL AND GOD’S LOVE
The Gospel is the good news about the death, burial, resurrection, and appearances of Jesus Christ. It means that Jesus Christ came down in the flesh to die on the cross for the sins of the world, for us. We, humans, are sinful creatures. As we are told in Isaiah 53, Christ paid the price for our sins. He was “pierced for our transgressions.” Christ took our punishment so that we could be ALIVE spiritually again! If you prayed the prayer above with conviction, meaning with sincerity, you have accepted Jesus Christ as Lord of your life and Savior of your heart.
Luke 15:10 says that “there is joy before the angels of God over one sinner who repents.” Just one! You are that one. Congratulations, and welcome to God’s family. To have someone contact you to celebrate further and help give you next steps on your NEW JOURNEY with Jesus, you can email [email protected]! Even if you are RECOMMITTING your life to Christ, we still want to pray with you and partner with you, so shoot an email our way for that, too.
