The Nicene Creed

Do Good

00:0000:00

If we were to observe the radical lifestyle changes described in doing no harm we’d be easily recognized as persons of unusual character. Now, we have the call to “do good.” Which begs the question, “What is good?”

00:0000:00

This week's lesson delves into the way God involves God's self in creation. We consider the nature of God's provision and how God provides even when we are not aware.

The Nicene Creed

Do No Harm

00:0000:00

To help new Christians with practical applications of their faith, John Wesley gave the "General Rules" that eventually were distilled into "Three Simple Rules" – “Do No Harm, Do Good, Stay in Love with God.” These rules gave new meaning to their lives and change entire communities, even a nation. Living in a new way, becoming a new creation is risky business. It requires sacrifice – the willingness to undergo a radical transformation – it requires creating a way through the wilderness where there was no way before. Listen as Pastor Dan describes the implications for modern Christians.
