Evangelism Group Day 1

  • Questions for Reflection and Application:
    • If you were raised in a Christian home, was evangelism part of your family culture? How so?
    • Do you know the names of your neighbors? Do you know them well enough to know the pains or passions of their lives?
    • How different would your life look if you started living each day, just that day, passionately pursuing a life that glorifies God?
    • What is the one thing that keeps you from that? What is one thing you can do today to move toward that goal?
    • Reflect on this statement: “If you feel like you should share Jesus with someone, it’s probably not the world, your flesh, or the devil. Take the risk.”
    • Think about someone you know who doesn’t know Jesus. Write their name down. Pray for him or her. (You don’t even have to witness this week but it’s okay if you do!)
    • Ask God to reveal to you what holds you back from sharing your faith. Then ask God for the grace to overcome that fear, believing he will do it.
  • This Week, Pray for:
    • God to help you face and overcome your fears.
    • God to help you meet your neighbors if you haven’t already, and begin developing relationships with them.
    • Each day this week, pray the three-fold prayer of the witness: God, give me this day: an opportunity to share Christ The wisdom to see it The courage to take it

  1. Good job this morning Pastor Paul on the Evangelism class! Many of the questions you posed this morning and here on this blog are very helpful to continuously ask and answer for us throughout our day and week, and as we go about our day to continue to ask and answer, and applying the knowledge and understanding we gain; we should be able to notice an evident trend upward by this I think.

    For me personally I’m going to work on my boldness in the truth this week; I’ve noticed that witnessing is like swimming – it’s terrifying at first, but sometimes the only you can do is jump into it, and continue jumping in until you can swim effectively.

    Please pray for me as I pray for you and the church, to grow in it’s mission to spread the gospel to our community. God bless!

    – Nic
