Puzzling Out Evangelism
Main Point: Be a living monument to God’s story.
What’s one idea from the message that stood out to you? Why do you think it grabbed you?
Are you a puzzle-type person? Why or why not?
What is a favorite monument of yours? Why?
How are the terms “laws” and “instructions” different?
Share a bad experience you had regarding evangelism. Share a good experience. Why were they different?
Read: Exodus 19:4-6, Deuteronomy 4:5-8, 1 Peter 2:4-9.
Why do we look at the Torah is an old, difficult to follow set of laws, instead of as instructions?
What comes to mind when you hear evangelism? What prevents us from evangelizing, or what makes it hard?
What does it mean to you to be part of a chosen people?
Have you ever known someone who you were drawn to? What drew you to that person (charisma, wisdom, etc.)?
How can we stand out among others? If you’re being nice, patient, etc., how/why is that different than any other nice or patient person who happens to not be a Christ-follower?
How can we be living monuments to God’s story?
As a way of practicing: Share your story.
Prayer: Pray to be bold in sharing God’s role in your life.
