Leaving Circles Of Comfort

 This Sunday we conclude our series on Walk Across The Room. If I were to summarize the series, I would say the key to evangelism is to be available to the Father to introduce His Son to others. To do this we must be open to leaving circles of comfort to extend friendship to outsiders.

Jesus did not mandate this without first modeling this truth. He left the ultimate circle of comfort to walk across timelessness to extend a hand of friendship to us. He was criticized and crucified for engaging sinners, and today we are the recipients of a lifestyle that reaches outward.

In Less Than A Minute

 In Bill Hybel’s book, Just Walk Across The Room, he talks about his story and the illustration of a bridge. How do we bridge the gap between God’s perfection and our sinfulness?

We’ll develop this thought Sunday morning. How would you tell your story? Why are you a person of faith? Can you tell it in less than a minute?

What was your life before and now, after you became a person of faith. How has Christ changed your life?

Series Continues - "Living In 3-D"

 

Last week we took a quick peek at I Peter 3:13-16 and how it relates to evangelism. Some have asked for examples, and so this week, as we look at “Living In 3-D,” we will examine several examples of what it means to wait to be asked and then be ready with a response.

Hope your small group study is going well and is bringing out some helpful dialogue in our effort to “Walk Across The Room.”

 

New Series - "Just Walk Across the Room" Begins Sunday

 This Sunday we launch a series on Just Walk Across The Room, a look into how we introduce seekers to Jesus. My primary text will be I Peter 3:13-16 that speaks of setting apart Christ as Lord.

The task is not evangelism; it’s making Jesus fully the Lord of our lives. Why do we struggle with this? I believe there are three reasons.

First, we are afraid that being evangelistic is getting too spiritual, and that being spiritual will cost us our stuff. We really do have a problem with our gods of comfort and convenience.

Jesus does a DTR in Matthew 16

 While working out at the gym a few weeks ago, I overheard two young ladies talking, and one said she had to do a DTR. I thought it was some kind of test and didn’t think too much of it until I heard it again in a different setting.

This Sunday I want to explore this DTR – a hip way of putting something of importance into perspective and how it affects us spiritually.

Whatever this DTR is, Jesus did it in Matthew 16:13-18. Good text to read to prepare for the lesson.
