Preaching the “Bad News”

Leave a comment

In order for the “Good News” to be good, there has to be “bad news” that it is countering. At least that’s the case with the gospel. The gospel is the greatest news ever to be proclaimed. That’s precisely because it’s the answer to the really, really bad news. Yet it seems we live in a world that increasingly either denies or doesn’t realize that sin exists, and that it can potentially lead our souls to eternal damnation. For many people, there is no right or wrong. Just “your truth” and “my truth.” Until each individual personally recognizes that he or she is sinful and in need of a savior, the good news will not be effective in their lives. It’s like telling a medical patient that there is a cure for his or her ailment. No cure is needed unless there is the knowledge of the malady and how serious it is. So, what can we do to help a world that has lost almost any sense of sin rediscover the “bad news,” so that it will wholeheartedly embrace the “good news?” Share your take with Jerry and Debbie on Friday.
