Big Idea This Week:
When in doubt, start with what God says

Questions to think about:
We are all looking for freedom from bad habits and twisted hearts. Luke is a fitting guide if we are on the move for good news in this “24/7 bad news” world. Luke wrote his letter to Theophilus, a friend to whom he wanted to give an “orderly account” of the good news of God’s salvation through Jesus.

The good news always comes in a package marked “Open at your own risk.” The gospel always comes as a miracle—a surprise that human beings rarely see coming. The miracle of the gospel is that it’s too good to be true. But it is true, and it calls us to be active witnesses in the freedom story of the resurrected Christ.
