The gospel is good news on many levels, but one of the most important ways in which the message of Jesus Christ is encountered as good news is in the fact that it calls idolaters away from vain worship. The gods we have fashioned for ourselves do not save us. The stories we have told ourselves do not give us answers. But the good news is that these gods and these stories are not all there is. In looking at Paul’s message to the pagans of Lystra, we can learn something about our idolatrous hearts and the idolatrous stories of our culture that shape our hearts.
This week we are studying from Acts 14:1-18.
