Connecting Activity: Top 3? We allotted some time for small groups this week in our program. The topic was simple. Give your top 3 ________. They could be top 3 movies, top 3 favorite songs, top 3 foods, you get the idea. Then we told students to keep talking about themselves.
Main Point of the Teaching: Share Jesus. We share the things that are most important to us. I put up pics of my wife and daughters who the students all know, then I put up pics of my dog which students probably don’t know. My family is more important then my dog so naturally I’ll share them first. How much more important is Christ? Made the point that in no way God will love us more or less if we share the gospel with no one or a million people. Don’t let guilt lead you to works righteousness. We’ll share Christ because he has renewed our hearts. Paul would say in 1 Cor 15:3 “For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures,”
Worship Response: Happy Day, How He Loves, Your Love Never Fails.
Next Week: (None until September.) We break weekly programing for the summer to give our volunteers a few months to rest, and to focus on relational ministry.
