Pastor Martin Cachero | All In: Generous Mercy | Acts 3:1-14 | mp3
The book of Acts reveal God’s Gospel movement through the early Church. It’s about the Gospel reaching out beyond the walls of Jerusalem and into world in both “word” and “deed” ministry. The proclamation of the Gospel is called word ministry and acts of mercy is an example of deed ministry. Mercy is an important theme throughout Acts. Whenever the Apostles proclaimed the Gospel, they also gave mercy. Mercy is showing compassion to the poor and the marginalized. This shows us that, God’s concern for the world is not just a spiritual one but also a physical and social one. This is because the Gospel is about, God redeeming and restoring all things. Acts 3 is a vivid example of mercy and the proclamation of his Good News!

Pastor Martin Cachero | All In: Generous Justice | Isaiah 58:1-14 | mp3
God calls the prophet Isaiah to speak out against the artificial worship of the Israelites. The people seek God, pray and fast, appearing to be doing all the “right” things but God sees right through their false piety. While the people fulfilled their worship observances, they neglected social concerns. They failed to do justice. Isaiah 58 is significant for us to truly know God’s heart and what true worship looks like. True worship is doing justice because God’s heart is concerning justice. What is revealed by the Prophet Isaiah is God’s desire for people to be freed from oppression, protected when vulnerable, and provided for when in need. As Christians, we have experienced the freedom that God provides by reconciling us to himself through the sacrifice of his Son on the cross, the ultimate picture of justice. This is the spiritual meaning of Isaiah 58. In the gospel, God provided a way for us to be free from the punishment for sin that we deserve and experience God’s mercy in Christ bearing that punishment for us. God’s generous justice for us has incredible implications for us in how we live in our world. We are called to engage this world and actively work towards cultural and social renewal. Our motivation is the Gospel and the hope of the world for justice is Christ in and through the Church.
