This is the Creekstone message from Sunday, Feb. 10, 2013.
Listen here: Rags to Riches • Acts 2.22-41
- What is significant about the fact that the gospel is news rather than instruction; that it is history, rather than legend, fable or myth?
- C.S. Lewis, in God in the Dock: Essays on Theology and Ethics, says, “Christianity, if false, is of no importance, [but] if true, it is of infinite importance. The only thing it cannot be is moderately important.” Do you think he is right? Why or why not? What are some implications of this?
- In what ways might we be tempted to de-value the gospel and be 50¢ Christians? What difference would it make if we were able to go from gospel rags to gospel riches, valuing and appropriating God’s grace in Jesus?
