thegathering@trinity.COM--Communicating Our Message

What is our message?

*The world is sick

*The sickness is sin

*There is only one cure—a relationship with God through Jesus Christ

How do we communicate?

Acts 2:5-11 (NLT)

5 Godly Jews from many nations were living in Jerusalem at that time. 6 When they heard this sound, they came running to see what it was all about, and they were bewildered to hear their own languages being spoken by the believers.

7 They were beside themselves with wonder. “How can this be?” they exclaimed. “These people are all from Galilee, 8 and yet we hear them speaking the languages of the lands where we were born! 9 Here we are—Parthians, Medes, Elamites, people from Mesopotamia, Judea, Cappadocia, Pontus, the province of Asia, 10 Phrygia, Pamphylia, Egypt, and the areas of Libya toward Cyrene, visitors from Rome (both Jews and converts to Judaism), 11 Cretans, and Arabians. And we all hear these people speaking in our own languages about the wonderful things God has done!”

How do we communicate?

In relevant ways people will understand

*This means being a part of our community

*This means getting out of the church sometimes

*This means getting outside of our comfort zone sometimes

**Church lingo

**Traditional methods

**Assumptions about people

It’s responsibility to make sure the message is understood
