Opportunities to Serve
BEFRIENDING TO BECOMING
We are called to invite others to follow Jesus. It’s part of being a follower of Christ. How can we do this without being jerks; without turning people off to God? How can we do this without being afraid to speak the name of Jesus? How can we do this as part of our daily routines? Remember, telling others about the love of Christ is urgently important.
“Go and preach the good news to everyone in the world. Anyone who believes me and is baptized will be saved. But anyone who refuses to believe me will be condemned.”—Jesus in Mark 16:16 (CEV)
Begin with prayer, asking that God motivate you and others in our congregation to share God’s love with those who don’t know Christ; those who have dropped out of church; those who are marginalized from our congregation.
“When [Jesus] saw the crowds, he felt sorry for them. They were confused and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. He said to his disciples, ‘A large crop is in the fields, but there are only a few workers. Ask the Lord in charge of the harvest to send out workers to bring it in.’ ”
—Matthew 9:36-38 (CEV)
