Where’s the Impact?

Does impacting the world take only actions?  Just words?

“We don’t just have the red letters in our Bible; we also have what he did. Both his words and actions were important in ushering in the Kingdom of God. In fact, if there ever was a person who could get away with doing only one of these, it was Jesus. And yet he gave us a different example. He showed us that we are to both live and speak the gospel. And in doing so, we will carry the message of God’s redeeming love into the world.” – Krish Kandiah

SHARING THE “GOSPEL?” – Evangelion – Good news

Acts 17:1-6

Are we turning the world upside down?

If we aren’t doing something we know we’re supposed to be doing, what’s the most likely reason?


 

1) Do we really want to?

 

Mark 10:17-27

The more you focus on what you want, the more empty your dreams become.  But when you spend your life like Jesus did, focused on the needs of the lives connected to yours, you will find true, meaningful purpose that leaves a lasting impact on the world.

Matthew 16:25


2) Do we think it’s important?

Matthew 26:38
We never really know what other people are going through.


3) What’s Stopping Us?

If you already know Jesus, you are both CALLED and you are CAPABLE to share Jesus with the world. 

If Jesus is who He says He is…
and you’re following Him…
then you already have

  • The only message that is ALWAYS worth sharing.
  • The power to share that message whenever the need arises.
  • The blueprint to live in a way that raises questions.
  • The love and humility that will allow you to be heard.

Luke 22:54-62
What Peter learned that night: 1 Peter 3:14-15


“There are people in our communities, families, and friend circles who have never heard the good news of the gospel. If we say we follow Jesus, then this should bother us. The notion that so many wander through life apart from his love should motivate us to share the hope that we have in Jesus Christ.” – Ed Stetzer
