Spiritual Application

Sharing the Good News of God's Word.

I think as a whole we all need to dig deeper into the Word and really take in all that Bible has for us.  This is a good meeting theme to bring up some of those "headlines"of the Bible and go over those a little. 

Get back to basics.  Maybe ingrain those things a little more into our memories so when we do share the Gospel and someone has questions about something else in the Bible, we have a working knowledge of what the Bible contains. 

I know I always could use some more Bible knowledge.  This is also a great meeting theme to encourage witnessing.

Theme Verse Suggestions

...How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!.  Romans 10:15

As cold waters to a thirsty soul, so is good news from a far country.  Proverbs 25:25

How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him that bringeth good tidings, that publisheth peace; that bringeth good tidings of good, that publisheth salvation; that saith unto Zion, Thy God reigneth!  Isaiah 52:7

And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.  Luke 2:10

Newspaper Word Challenge:

Give each person a section of a newspaper along with a highlighter. 

Have a list of words ready for everyone to search for in their paper. 

You can say them aloud or have written them on a chalkboard. 

See who can highlight the most words first.

Write a Biblical News Article:

Have titles of Bible stories or events written on index cards. 

Each team is responsible for writing a newspaper title and article on that Bible story or event. 

If they aren’t familiar with the story or cant remember it totally, they will need to make something up. 

Encourage them to use lots of adjectives in their story.  Give a time limit for the teams to be finished.

Have someone from each team read the stories aloud to your group and then have a discussion after each story on the facts associated with it. 

Make sure if there is anything inaccurate in the story that was read that it is corrected before you move on.
