Welcome to Hope Talk
Last week I sent a link to watch... if you didn't watch it here it is again:
What a joy that God shares with us that we might be sent into the Harvest to speak the Gospel to those who are our friends and neighbors, even family, but also to those who are strangers. We are to give credence to the Gospel to all those God brings into our lives and at the most unusual times and places. The Gospel is a clear statement of truth from God to man. It is the good news but we must know the bad news for it to be the good news. Bad news? We are sinners and deserve and will receive judgment and condemnation from a perfect and sovereign King. That is the bad news. The good news (Gospel) is that God sent His Son to the earth as a man to pay the price for sinners who repent of their sin and ask for forgiveness based on the Person and Work of Jesus, Who was perfect, innocent, and without sin yet receive the punishment for sin, death. All that is needed is repentance and faith, both of which are gifts from God (Eph.2:8,9; 2Tim.2:25), payment for sin (Christ obtained this), and the grace of God declaring our righteousness as He places us in Christ. The joy we have is in the commission to tell others what has changed our lives and eternity. That is all. Telling others about God’s grace and goodness in every way we can, in every form or shape to present the truth to a generation needing to know. Not all understand from one method. Multiple methods of grace in the heart and joy in the soul. Let’s tell it in the way God has made us. Just show your changed heart. Amen.

The Work as Worship Retreat is a one-day gathering to help people break down the wall between Sunday and the rest of the week. We will hear from industry-leading speakers like John Maxwell, Louie Giglio, Jon Acuff, and others, so mark your calendar. This retreat is for everyone—not just those who work nine to five in an office. If you want to grow in your faith and learn how your work can be an act of worship, we invite you to attend.
Tickets are available for $30.00.
