The Good News – Lesson 5

Chapter 5 of the book, Weakness is Your Greatest Strength.

Religion paints a picture of God that is toxic and demanding. In human relationships, if someone constantly demands more than we can give, we understand this is toxic and unhealthy. Somehow we have learned to accept the image of a demanding God as normal. The truth is that God is love, and the Bible states that love does not demand, seek its own, or keep records of the wrongs of others. God removed sin by taking our sins upon Himself, so we can be free to live in peace with God without fear. The word ‘gospel’ means ‘good news’. If our view of the Christian life is not good news, then we have lost sight of the true message of faith in Christ.
