For God So Loves the City

For God So Loves the City

God's message of comfort and hope speaks into the city's soul.
Single Session Bible Study

Overview

Throughout the Bible, God demonstrates his concern for the city: "But Nineveh has more than a hundred and twenty thousand people who cannot tell their right hand from their left…Should I not be concerned about that great city– he asks (Jonah 4:11). So how should we approach mission work in cities? How does God's message speak into the extremes of success and hardship experienced by many in cities? Understanding the city and its unique challenges helps us engage in localized urban ministry that preaches God's global promises of comfort and hope.
