Come & See • Rev. Derek Joyce

John 4:28-30
The woman put down her water jar and went into the city. She said to the people, “Come and see a man who has told me everything I’ve ever done! Could this man be the Christ?” They left the city and were on their way to see Jesus.

When it comes to sharing faith, the best we have to offer is our own story of being found in Christ. When we have experienced the forgiveness, healing, and abundant grace of God that has brought us from the darkness of this broken world into the light of the kingdom of God, then we have a story to tell. Our story becomes the story of the gospel hope for the world, and we can tell it boldly, confidently, with hope and joy and with invitation for others to enter into God’s story as well. You never know how people will respond. As with the woman’s testimony in John, chapter 4, it may be that “many in that city believed in Jesus because of the woman’s word…and many more believed because of Jesus’ words” (John 4:39-42).

May the LORD strengthen our voices as we simply tell our stories of encountering Jesus. And may many come to believe in Jesus, as the savior of the world. Amen.

It Takes Two to Bring the Kingdom

September 14, 2018

Mark 6:6-13

Then Jesus went around teaching from village to village. 7 Calling the Twelve to him, he began to send them out two by two and gave them authority over impure spirits.

8 These were his instructions: “Take nothing for the journey except a staff—no bread, no bag, no money in your belts. 9 Wear sandals but not an extra shirt. 10 Whenever you enter a house, stay there until you leave that town. 11 And if any place will not welcome you or listen to you, leave that place and shake the dust off your feet as a testimony against them.”

12 They went out and preached that people should repent. 13 They drove out many demons and anointed many sick people with oil and healed them.

CONSIDER THIS

74. Then Jesus went around teaching from village to village. Never underestimate the significance of the ministry of teaching. There is no substitute for it. Teaching paves the way for the in-breaking Kingdom of God. Preaching opens the door. Deliverance and healing demonstrate the Kingdom’s arrival.
