A BUNCH OF EVERYDAY MISSIONARIES
Doing good and praying are two easy yet powerful habits, especially when Jesus is an active participant—and exponentially when you join with others who are joining Jesus on his mission.
Notes and Next Steps
Hebrews 10:23-25 + Part 5 of the series "Joining Jesus On His Mission"
To be a missionary, you don’t need to
manipulate people to say yes.
Just meet Jesus in people’s lives, and meet others who want to do the same.
What if random acts of kindness aren’t so random?
For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do. (Ephesians 2:10)
“Wow … well, um … good luck with that.”
And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching. (Hebrews 10:24-25)
Five Mission Questions for Your Group
How did you see God at work this week? Where did Jesus show up on his mission around you?
What has Jesus been teaching you in his Word about your mission field?
What kind of conversations are you having with people who need Jesus? How many people did you invite to church this week?
What good can our church do? our LifeGroup? you personally?
What have you prayed about, and with which people in your mission field? Learn from each other.
You’re not being sent out for Jesus. You’re being invited to come along with Jesus. Now go have some fun!
