SERIES - Simply Gosepel: Nothing Added
If you were given news of the best restaurant in town and then given burdensome conditions that were required in order to eat there, how would you respond? The news of this restaurant becomes a bit less enchanting. So, too, with the Gospel – when we add our own conditions to God’s simple truth, we not only dampen its appeal, but we also diminish its meaning.
This week’s #WholeLifeTakeAways:
In the Story of the Lost Son in Luke 15: there are rule followers and rule breakers. We've probably found ourselves on both of those sides. Which side makes it harder for us to understand a loving father who's always willing to take BOTH of us back?
Why might it be difficult for your neighbor to see the gospel as truly good news for them in today’s world? How might it be hard for you to view it as good?
If you were a sibling in this story from Luke, how might you have responded to the young brother? What about the older brother?
What keeps you from thinking you’re ready, even after Jesus says, "I stand at your door and knock?”
