The Gospel: 5. He is Coming again to Restore all things

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.

Experience and Encounter

  • Read : Revelation 22:17,20-21(ICB) The Spirit and the bride say, “Come!” Everyone who hears this should also say, “Come!” If anyone is thirsty, let him come; whoever wishes it may have the water of life as a free gift… Jesus is the One who says that these things are true. Now he says, “Yes, I am coming soon.” Amen. Come, Lord Jesus! The grace of the Lord Jesus be with all. Amen.

  • The phrase: Come, Lord Jesus in Aramaic was “Maranatha”. It was a declaration used by the early church to declare two core truths, Jesus has come and Jesus will come again. We live in the tension of these two comings. Take time to think and then share with each other where you find yourself moved to pray “Come, Lord Jesus” . It could either be places of brokenness you see currently that need Jesus now or anticipation of where you are waiting for his coming and full restoration.

  • Share Communion together

Practice and Obey

  • Intentionally incorporate the breath prayer “Maranatha” into your days this week. You might want to all choose a time to set an alarm/reminder where you all pray at the same time each day.

    • for example you might all want to pray at 8 am and 8 pm each day during the week


  • The Lord’s Prayer
