9-15: Reaching Your Onesimus

(no recording today)

Sharing Jesus with Others

1 Peter 3:15

15 But in your hearts revere Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect,

John 1:40,41

40 Andrew, Simon Peter’s brother, was one of the two who heard what John had said and who had followed Jesus. 41 The first thing Andrew did was to find his brother Simon and tell him, “We have found the Messiah” (that is, the Christ).

John 1:42

42 And he brought him to Jesus

John 6:8,9

8 Another of his disciples, Andrew, Simon Peter’s brother, spoke up, 9 “Here is a boy with five small barley loaves and two small fish, but how far will they go among so many?”

John 12:22

22 Philip went to tell Andrew; Andrew and Philip in turn told Jesus.

Acts 1:8

8 But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”

Edification:

1. Each one of us needs to identify and pray for the people in our lives who are far from God.

2. Live an authentic Jesus powered life, because the world is not likely to receive a gospel of transformation from un-transformed people.

3. Practice the art of spiritual conversation.
