Reaching Out

The title of the first panel is “Reaching Out.”
The good news of the Gospel is that God
in Christ took the initiative and reached
out to us with grace-filled love. God’s love
demonstrated for us in the cross of Jesus
breaks the chains of sin and death that
bind and restrict out lives. Our response to
God’s saving love in Jesus is to reach out to
those beyond the doors of the church who
are searching and struggling.

As you study this first panel ask yourself
this question – Who is God nudging you to
reach out to and share the good news of
God’s love for us in Jesus Christ. Perhaps it
is a family member or a friend or a neighbor
who is carrying a heavy burden. Reaching
out means sharing how we came to believe
and the difference that Christ makes in
our life. Reaching out means extending an
invitation to them to come and worship
with us and see what Christ can do in their
life. It is amazing how this simple act of
reaching out can help someone take the
first step in their journey back to Christ who
breaks the chains of their bondage so that
they may find their freedom in Christ.
