The Gospel in Seven Words – Mid-Week Lenten Sermons
Imagine that a friend or family member who is unfamiliar with your Christian faith asks you to summarize the Gospel. They’re not looking for a laundry list of doctrines. They have no interest in hearing you recite the Apostle’s Creed. They want to get to the heart of the matter. “In seven words or less, tell me what you believe as a Christian.”
What would you say? How would you put it? Are you prepared to confess your faith in Jesus?
To be a Christian is to “believe with your heart” and “confess with your mouth” the Good News of God’s love for us in Christ (Romans 10:9-10). Peter calls us to be prepared always to give a reason for the hope we have as Christians (1 Peter 3:15). Christians have the best news in the world to share—but are we prepared to share it?
During this season of Lent, we’re going to prepare to celebrate Holy Week by sharing why Holy Week is so important. The sermons for our mid-week worship services will resemble workshops as we work together to formulate faithful Christian confessions. Come prepared to contribute to the conversation!
