Story to tell to the Nations

“We’ve a story to tell to the nations, that shall turn their hearts to the right.
A story of truth and mercy. A story of peace and light. A story of peace and light.
We’ve a message to give to the Nations, that the Lord who reigns up above.
Has sent us His Son to save us and show us that God is love.
And show us that God is love.”

Remember, Alfie? He was a man who could not do any right. Everything he touched, he messed up. One day, he tried to commit suicide and he couldn’t do that right. He ended up in the hospital. A friend visited him and asked, “Alfie, why did you try to kill yourself?” Alfie said, “Because there is no good news, if there was good news, someone would have come running to tell me.”

Now, I want to tell you that there is GOOD NEWS. It is God’s love story. How He went down into the shadow of death; there to labor, suffer, in order to give life to mankind. The Good News is that
God so loved the world that He gave His only Son to save the world of people. The Good News is defined as the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus. It is not our subjective experiences but the objective truth of God. The Scripture that we preach/teach/tell is God’s power unto salvation. It is through the foolishness of preaching, not foolish preaching, that saves those who believe.

Our task is to plant the seed of God which is His Word. We must water and cultivate that truth but it is God who gives the increase. Our responsibility is not to save souls. Ours is to speak the truth with love and God by His spirit will do the saving, if man responds. Salvation is an individual response. God judges people out of motives, intents, struggles of the heart.

Understand that the message to the world is not come to us, come to our doctrines, come to our church, come to our Christ. Rather, the message is COME, GO WITH US TO Christ, we too are weak and need strength, we too are ignorant and need truth, we too are sinful and need forgiveness. COME, GO WITH US TO CHRIST. Out of hearts of love, declare and demonstrate God’s love for everyone.
