Growing Together At Home: Gospel Sharers
Now that we are starting to see changes in expectation, we will see more opportunity to live out our faith as the local church. Even though we are still limited in what it looks like to meet together to study, learn and grow, we must continue to make this a priority as families.
Each week, you will find a new audio message, along with some corresponding Scripture readings that focus on the topic addressed in the message. You will also see a number of questions designed for you and your family to discuss together, or for you to use in personal reflection and assessment. Our desire is that your family will have an opportunity to engage together with God’s Word and examine the expectations expressed for His family.
We are discussing today the ninth of twelve simple steps that will guide us in fulfilling the church’s mission to become disciples who make disciples. Today we will unpack one of the most significant aspects of making an impact in our community and world by discussing what it means to be a Gospel Sharer.
READ & DISCUSS
Scripture Reading One: Romans 10:14-15
Why is it important for Christ followers to share the Gospel?
What is required in order for someone to be able to believe in Jesus Christ?
This passage speaks to the importance of sending out people to preach. How does this expectation affect our personal habits of sharing the Gospel and the importance of supporting local and global missions?
What hinders us from sharing the Gospel?
Often times we are hesitant to share the gospel out of fear or uncertainty about how someone might respond. What does this passage say about how people are received when they bring good news?
Scripture Reading Two: 1 Corinthians 9:22-24
To what lengths did Paul go so that the Gospel could be heard and understood?
What would it look like for you to “become all things to all people” as you share the Gospel with friends, family, co-workers, classmates, teammates, neighbors, whomever?
What do you think Paul means that he shares in the blessings of sharing the Gospel?
What are some ways that you can share the Gospel, both during this time and when we are able to get out in public once again?
It is important to remember that a Gospel Sharer is not just someone who shares the Gospel, but is one who has a compassion for lost people, and that love compels them to share.
