Good News

Good News!

Here are some of my favorite scriptures on Good News preached in Acts 13 & Acts 14

out of Acts 13:26-41:

It is to you this message of salvation has been sent.
God raised Jesus from dead.
Those who saw him raised are now witnesses to the people.
We tell you the good news: What God had promised our fathers he has fulflled for us, their children, by raising Jesus.
Through Jesus the forgiveness of sins is proclaimed to you.
Through him everyone who believes is justified from everything you could not be justified from by the the law of Moses.

out of Acts 13:48-52:

The disciples where filled with joy even when persecuted.

out of Acts 14:11-18

We are bringing you good news telling you to turn from worthless things to the living God.

out of Acts 14:21-23

They preached the good news in that city and won a large number of disciples.
They: strengthened, encouraged.
"We must go through many hardships to enter the kingdom of God."
Paul and Barnabas appointed elders, prayed, fasted.

out of Acts 14:24-28

They gathered all the church togeather and reported all that God had done through them and how how he had opened the door of faith to the Gentiles.
