Messy People - Merciful God

A Lenten Series on Judges

Beginning Sunday, February 11, 2018

In the book of Judges, there is an ongoing cycle of the people’s disobedience, God raising up a judge, the people’s obedience, the judge dying, and then the people’s disobedience.  And the cycle gets tighter and shorter with each judge.

Of course, the backstory is that the people are now in the land of promise.  God has delivered them, and when entering the land with Joshua, the Israelites had promised full obedience to God.  Didn’t happen. They were so easily pulled into the spiritual pluralism of the day.  And yet…God keeps coming back to them.  When they cry for mercy, he raises a new judge.  And for a time, they obey.  Even the judges become increasingly flawed and sinful.  Not quite the “heroes” our Sunday school stories always like to make them out to be.  We see a messy people and a merciful God.

We, too, are a messy people.  The more we confess our mess and brokenness, the more God’s transformational mercy can transform us into the people he’s meant us to be.  As Tim Keller writes, see with fresh eye “a God of mercy and long-suffering, who continually works in and through us despite our constant resistance to his purposes.”  The true hero of the book—and of each of our stories-- is God himself.


We are

A Worshipping Community

Good News Christian Reformed Church has been part of the east end of London, Ontario since 1989. Through God's gracious help and guidance, we hope to share the good news of God’s amazing love for everyone. We think GNC will be a place where you can connect with others who are also learning to grow in their faith.

Our Sunday morning worship service at 10:30 a.m. is central to the life of Good News Church. During worship we focus on bringing praise to God, and on listening to His Word (Scripture). Worship services are a blend of contemporary and traditional styles. Every Sunday we sing God’s praises and we hear His Word explained. We bring our thanks and our petitions to Him in prayer. These weekly gatherings equip us for another week of service to God.


"So then you are no longer strangers and aliens, but you are fellow citizens with the saints, and are of God's household, having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ Jesus Himself being the corner stone, in whom the whole building, being fitted together, is growing into a holy temple in the Lord, in whom you also are being built together into a dwelling of God in the Spirit."

Ephesians 2:19-22

We Believe

Good News Church is part of a larger denomination called the Christian Reformed Church in North America. The CRCNA website states: “We call ourselves Christian because we are followers of Jesus Christ. We believe that Jesus was the Son of God and that he is the center of human history. We’re called Reformed because we grow on a branch of the church tree that emerged from the Protestant Reformation in sixteenth-century Europe. We’re a Church because we believe God has called us together to be a people who belong to him and live for him.” (www.crcna.org)


"...but speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in all aspects into Him who is the head, even Christ, from whom the whole body, being fitted and held together by what every joint supplies, according to the proper working of each individual part, causes the growth of the body for the building up of itself in love."

Ephesians 4:15-16
