(Matthew 28:18-20 NASB)
Introduction: Tell some old news, like Pearl Harbor being bombed, JFK being assassinated, or that men walked on the moon. Act as if it is brand new news. Tell them that old news is new news to someone who hasn’t heard it before.

Invitation: What has Christ done for you? Are you willing to tell others about it? Or, has it become such “old news” that you don’t think anyone is interested any longer?
