Thoughts for Reflection:

All believers are called to be faithful Gospel witnesses to the places we live, work, and play.  This isn’t just for the professionals.  We are Christ’s ambassadors; our homes are Kingdom outposts.  Our jobs, schools, neighborhoods, parks, and grocery stores are mission fields to which we are called.  Christ’s call to all believers as He returned to Heaven was to “Preach the Gospel” and “Make Disciples”.  The Good News (GOSPEL) of Jesus Christ, God making a way for people to be right with Him, is something we need to share.

In our last message on “Effective Evangelism,” we talked about the ART of Sharing.  This involves sharing our story, our experience with Christ, and how we have been changed by the Gospel message.  It also involves us sharing the Gospel message with others.  Over the next three weeks, we are going to talk specifically and practically about sharing that very message in a conversational and relational way.  It all starts with God’s design.

Questions to take home:

  1. How does the Genesis account of creation color your understanding of God?  Read Psalm 139.  How does this passage add to the creation narrative?  What does it mean to be “created in God’s image”?
  2. Today we celebrate the Lord’s supper, a picture of our restored relationship with God through Jesus Christ.  How does this sacrament remind you of God’s design for our relationship with Him?  How does it show us the pathway to that restored relationship?
  3. Think of one or two people you know that do not follow Jesus as their Lord and Savior.  Commit to praying for opportunities to turn everyday conversations into Gospel Conversations, that God would draw these people to His Son, Jesus.
