Someone I know needs Jesus. Discussion Guide
Has there been a time you saw an awesome sight or had an exhilarating experience but had no one to share it with?
Discuss what stood out to you from this sermon. What challenged, encouraged, or stretched you?
Read John 1:35-51.
What happens in this passage? How did John the Baptist prepare the way for Jesus? What were the immediate actions of Jesus’ new followers?
Dan mentioned in his sermon that, “Before we talk to people about God, we should be talking to God about people.” Do you agree or disagree? In what ways is prayer important to evangelism?
Next Dan said that, “The life we live will either increase people’s interest in the gospel we preach or increase people’s suspicion of the gospel we preach.” How have you seen this to be true?
Lastly, Dan told us that in evangelism we need to be able to share the gospel. What is the gospel? How can you share the gospel in community?
Key to evangelism is sharing your story. This week for application, practice with your group sharing your story like Dan suggested.
1. Share your life before Jesus.
2. Share how you met Jesus.
3. Share how Jesus has since changed your life.
Then, for accountability, tell your group one person for whom you will be praying and with whom you intend to share your story.
Pray as a group for the individuals in each other’s lives who do not know Jesus.
