About this Lesson:

We could all use some good news now…..

Pandemic, crazy weather, racial injustice, and political turmoil—wherever we turn, bad news fills our world.

But there is one place the news is good—and that’s in the good news about Jesus. Many call this good news the gospel and that’s what our lesson is all about.

Why the gospel is GOOD NEWS

The gospel” is a term Christians often use, but what does that mean?

“Good news”  is the dictionary definition of the word “gospel”.

The next logical question of course is: “Good news about what?”

The good news is that God didn’t sit up in heaven, watching humanity make a mess of their lives and their world and do nothing.

He did something about it with extraordinarily important implications for people both now and for eternity. John 3:16 summarizes it in this way “God so loved the world that he sent his only begotten son that whosoever believes in him should not perish, but have eternal life.”

To explore this good news in more detail, let’s look at why we need God’s good news and how to respond to it—that’s what this lesson is about. Please take time to look at it and share it with all you can.

I’m making it free so cost won’t be a deterrent. You also have my permission to make as many copies of the video or handouts as you’d like.
