Do you want to hear the bad news or good news first? Have you ever been asked this question? Are you a good news first or bad news first kind of person? Whichever camp you may fall in, when we share the gospel of Jesus, we have to share the bad news first. Why? Because without the bad news, the good news isn’t good news.
So what’s the bad news? And how does it make the good news good? How can we stir up the uneasy feeling that the bad news creates and prepare people not only for good news, but the best news in all the world? In C.S. Lewis’ words, how can we open wounds so that we can heal them with the gospel? That is the heart of this message, The Stirring of Uneasiness.
