The Gospel: 3. He died the death we should have died for sin

Updated: Jan 24

The Gospel Overview

The gospel means ‘good news’- the good news of who Jesus is and what Jesus has done. It is the message that Jesus is Lord and the Kingdom of God is now accessible on earth as it is in heaven through him unto a whole new creation. The gospel is the power of God for the salvation and transformation of all who put their trust in Jesus.

RESPOND (30 min)

Experience and Encounter

  • Share Communion together as you reflect on the cross where Jesus’ body was broken and blood shed for us.

  • Prepare the elements (if possible have a loaf of bread to break and share)

  • Take time to individually meditate on the cross as each person holds a piece of broken bread (kneel if possible).

  • You could sit/kneel in silence or play ‘Jesus paid it all’ Jesus paid it all (with lyrics) by Kim Walker-Smith

  • Consider what emotion rises in you as you contemplate the cross and the scriptures from the morning.

  • Offer prayers of gratitude to Jesus for what he has done for you (Died the death you should have died for sin)

  • Partake in the communion elements together

Practice and Obey

  • Take time this week to consider if there is any sin or bondage of sin that you are living under that can be given to Jesus. Spend time in repentance and receiving the forgiveness that the cross provides.

  • Consider taking communion daily throughout this week to keep Jesus’s life and death before you.


  • The Lord’s Prayer

Anyone new in your home church?

Things to Consider:

  • Is the new individual, or family organically connecting with anyone in your home church? Suggest a coffee hang to begin a deeper connection, or consider having the individual/family over for an easy dinner to get to know them better.

  • Is the new individual, or family interested in receiving communication via text, or email? If so, have them email with their name and phone number.

  • Do they plan to attend All Navah Gatherings? If yes and it is a new family, they can email with their name, their children(s) name, DOB and grade to make for a smooth kids ministry check-in process.
