This week we wrapped up our series on Biblical community. Brandon challenged us to serve our body, serve lost people, serve the poor and needy and serve overseas. The culmination of this series is all in this week's message. All our devotion, pursuit, authenticity, counseling and admonishing must lead us to engage missionally.
Key Texts: Galatians 6:6-10; 1 Peter 4:7-11; Luke 19:9-10; James 1:27; John 6:38
How comfortable are you with sharing the gospel with others? What, if anything, makes you uncomfortable to share (e.g. fear, lack of knowledge, etc.)? What are some steps you could take to grow in this area?
Do you know what your spiritual gifts are? If not, how can you begin learning what they are?
Is it easy or hard to believe that God wants to use you uniquely to love others and serve Him? Why?
What are some ways that you could love and serve others in the areas noted above? Who do you need to share the gospel with?
If you could choose three people to come to know Jesus as Savior today, who would they be (e.g. neighbor, co-worker, family member, etc.)? Why did you pick them?
What are you doing, or what is your plan, to engage those people in a spiritual conversation?
What gifts and talents has our group been blessed with? How will we best deploy them in engaging those who are far from Christ? Brainstorm some ideas together.
How will we encourage and hold one another accountable to share our faith regularly? Be specific.
