Believers - Lifelines_Page_1

In this series, Lifelines, we have looked at the difference in being, as a church, a Life Saving Station as opposed to being a social club. We believe that God has uniquely created you and there are ways that you can effectively win the lost in a way that is natural and comfortable to you. We began to discover these ways through different individual life saving styles and this Sunday we are going to look at Jesus’ Rescue Plan 72.

Rescue Plan 72 is a lifesaving method that Jesus taught as He was sending out seventy-two disciples.

Luke 10:1 After this the Lord appointed seventy-two others and sent them two by two ahead of him to every town and place where he was about to go.

In Rescue Plan 72 we see four basic steps of evangelism that we can apply to our lives and to those we are trying to reach. Join us this Sunday at 9 or 11 a.m. as we learn what these steps of evangelism are and how we can use them in our day to day lives to reach the lost.

Time changes this weekend, so “fall back” before you go to sleep on Saturday and get an extra hour of sleep-

Take advantage of the opportunity of having an extra hour on Sunday morning and invite a friend to church with you this Sunday!

Understand the great news that’s both freeing and empowering:

God knew what He was doing when He made you.

God doesn’t call us all to spread His truth in the same way. He built diversity into the fabric of His body of believers.

As we work together to rescue those who are drowning in the sea of sin, we may have similar ways to rescue people, but we may have ways and methods that fit us and our personality better than others. And by rescuing the way we were designed to rescue, we will all be more effective. Biblical we see Six Rescue Styles of Evangelism in the New Testament: The Confrontational Style, Intellectual style, Testimonial Style, Interpersonal Style, Invitational Style, and the Serving Style.

INTERPERSONAL STYLE

Biblical Example: Matthew also known as Levi.

“Matthew Party” A party with a purpose. Matt 9:9-13 / Luke 5:29

Characteristics: Warm personality / Conversational / Friendship oriented (Tending to focus on people and their needs more than on ideas.)

Contemporary Examples: Peggy Moore / Billy Godwin / Who do you know who is interpersonal?

Cautions: If you have this style you will need to avoid valuing friendship over truth telling. Presenting the Gospel often means challenging a person’s whole direction in life, and that can mean causing friction in your relationship.

BUILDING RELATIONSHIPS

PEOPLE WE ALREADY KNOW

Suggestions:

· Include them in activities we are ALREADY DOING

· Organize a “MATTHEW PARTY” (Luke 5:29)

· BARBECUE First!

PEOPLE WE USED TO KNOW

Suggestions:

· Schoolmates

· Former work associates

· Previous neighbors

· Friends with whom we’ve lost touch

PEOPLE WE WOULD LIKE TO KNOW

Suggestion:

· Civic groups, Health clubs, Community organizations, Sports leagues

· Strategic Consumerism

POINTS TO REMEMBER

· Pray

· Listen

· Build on Areas of Common Ground

· Mention Spiritual Matters Early

INVITATIONAL STYLE

Biblical Example: The Woman at the well. (John 4) “Come and see!”

John 4:27-30 and John 4:39-42

39 Many of the Samaritans from that town believed in him because of the woman’s testimony, "He told me everything I ever did."

40 So when the Samaritans came to him, they urged him to stay with them, and he stayed two days.

41 And because of his words many more became believers.

42 They said to the woman, "We no longer believe just because of what you said; now we have heard for ourselves, and we know that this man really is the Savior of the world." (NIV)

Characteristics: Hospitable / Relational / Persuasive

Contemporary Examples: Who do you know that is invitational?

Cautions: Be careful not to always let others do your talking for you. You too, need to “always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have…” I Peter 3:15

SERVING STYLE

Biblical Example: Dorcas (Acts 9) “Doing good and helping the poor.”

Acts 9:36-42

36 In Joppa there was a disciple named Tabitha (which, when translated, is Dorcas), who was always doing good and helping the poor.

37 About that time she became sick and died, and her body was washed and placed in an upstairs room.

38 Lydda was near Joppa; so when the disciples heard that Peter was in Lydda, they sent two men to him and urged him, "Please come at once!"

39 Peter went with them, and when he arrived he was taken upstairs to the room. All the widows stood around him, crying and showing him the robes and other clothing that Dorcas had made while she was still with them.

40 Peter sent them all out of the room; then he got down on his knees and prayed. Turning toward the dead woman, he said, "Tabitha, get up." She opened her eyes, and seeing Peter she sat up.

41 He took her by the hand and helped her to her feet. Then he called the believers and the widows and presented her to them alive.

42 This became known all over Joppa, and many people believed in the Lord. (NIV)

Characteristics: Others-centered / Humble / Patient

Contemporary Examples: Mother Teresa / Bill Wilson / Many in our church.

Cautions: Just as “words are no substitute for actions, “actions are no substitute for words.” In Romans 10:14, it is made clear that we must verbally tell people about Christ.

Rom 10:14 How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? (NIV)

Believers Church’s Life Saving Style

INTERPERSONAL STYLE / INVITATIONAL STYLE / SERVING STYLE

Relational Evangelism and Servant Evangelism.

  1. Relational Evangelism

· INVEST

Invest in at least one person, outside of your family, who is lost.

Invest yourself. Your time, love, energy, compassion, and resources. Just be their friend.

Investing in people starts with caring about people.

Realize that other people do exist and they are important to God. Ask God to give you a heart for people. Let God love those people through you.

· INVITE

Invite your lost friends to Church. “Twenty-five percent of the adults in the United States would go to church if a friend would just invite them.” (George Barna poll) That means that one in four of your friends would come to church with you if you would just invite them.

The Church’s Part: One of our goals at Believers is to reach the unchurched of Statesboro.

We want our church to be like Jesus: a place where sinners feel welcomed. Therefore, through prayer and the leading of the Holy Spirit, we strive to create an environment where you can bring your unsaved friends and they can sense the manifest presence of the Lord, hear the gospel of Jesus Christ and experience life change. We want to be a life-giving church rather than a life-draining church.

Your Part: Invite your friends. We are doing our part here, so you need to be actively inviting people to come and see. Don’t be discouraged if they say no or if they keep telling you they will attend but don’t. Don’t give up on them because they are not coming as soon as you would like. Gird your invitation or invitations in prayer and make the big ask. What do you have to lose?

“For everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? And how can they preach unless they are sent? As it is written, “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!” Romans 10:13-15

You are always welcomed and encouraged to share Jesus with your friends on a one-on-one basis. But we realize that different people respond in different way. Some respond better to public invitation. Some respond better in “Life Group” settings. Others respond better one-on-one.

But people are so valuable to God; they warrant an all-out search in which we keep all of our options open. Therefore we INVEST and we INVITE.

The end results will be worth the rejections, worth the investments, and worth the effort.

There is only one thing we do better here that we won’t be able to do in heaven: that’s search. That’s why Jesus has left us here on the earth. To follow in his footsteps, to seek and save the lost.

  1. Servant Evangelism

Servant Evangelism is sharing the love and message of Jesus Christ through practical acts of service and kindness. Servant Evangelism is a biblical, fun, simple, and intentional way to make sharing Jesus a lifestyle.

Servant Evangelism can be done individually or as a group. Here is the simple concept: an individual or group begins doing intentional acts of kindness in their community with the aim of evangelism. A simple act of kindness opens an unbeliever up to the greatest act of kindness of all: the Gospel.

Servant Evangelism involves two parts: Service (i.e., acts of kindness) and Evangelism. Many people in our culture today believe that the church is only concerned with getting something from them. By doing Servant Evangelism, the church is doing more than just being nice. It is breaking down one of the major barriers that keep people from experiencing the Gospel.

Servant Evangelism is a wonderful expression of the Great Commandment and the Great Commission. It is great for people who are first learning how to share their faith, as well as the most seasoned Christian.

Life Group and Family Devotional App

1. Of the three Rescue Styles covered this week which best describes your style? Invitational, Interpersonal, or Serving? Why do you feel that way?

2. Would you as a family or you as a Life Group host a Matthew Party? How would you get the unchurched to attend?

3. When it comes to BUILDING RELATIONSHIPS, we look at three groups of people.

PEOPLE WE ALREADY KNOW (List three people you currently know that need Jesus.)

PEOPLE WE USED TO KNOW (List three old friends that need to know Jesus.)

PEOPLE WE WOULD LIKE TO KNOW (List three people that you would like to know and who need Jesus.)

4. Do you feel like your church is a place where you would feel comfortable inviting your friends to come and see? How can we make our churches irresistible to the lost?

5. If we can’t get folks to come to church, we can take the love of Jesus to them and serve them. Why do we do servant evangelism at Believers and do you think it is effective? Why or Why not?

6. Would your family or your Life Group consider doing a servant evangelism project together? Discuss some ideas.

Believers - Lifelines_Page_1

Last Sunday we learned that God doesn’t call us all to spread His truth in the same way. He built diversity into the fabric of His body of believers. We are not all the same and we will use different lifesaving methods to rescue those who are drowning in the sea of sin. Lifesaving methods that are more natural to us and our personalities, which prove to be more effective. Sunday we discussed three of the six Biblical Life Saving Styles; Confrontational, Intellectual, and Testimonial.

This Sunday at Believers we will explore Life Saver Styles 4,5, and 6.  Join us at 9 or 11 AM.

Also, don’t forget to bring a bag (or 2) of candy for Family Fun night!

clip_image001Understand the great news that’s both freeing and empowering:

God knew what He was doing when He made you.

God doesn’t call us all to spread His truth in the same way. He built diversity into the fabric of His body of believers.

As we work together to rescue those who are drowning in the sea of sin, we will use similar lifesaving methods. But, just like all lifeguards aren’t the same, we are not all the same either and we may use different lifesaving methods that fit us and our personality better. If we use lifesaving methods that are more natural to us and our personalities our lifesaving efforts will prove more effective. Biblically we see Six Life Saver Styles of Evangelism in the New Testament: The Confrontational Style, Intellectual style, Testimonial Style, Interpersonal Style, Invitational Style, and the Serving Style.

CONFRONTATIONAL STYLE

Biblical Example: Peter

· “Ready-Fire-Aim” kind of Guy! Spoke His Mind with force.

· Matthew 16:15 declared Jesus was the Son of God and a few verses later he challenged Jesus’ stated mission head on, in Matthew 16:22.

· Got out of the boat and walked on water / Cut off the ear of a temple guard.

All Peter needed was to be convinced he was right, and there was almost no stopping him. He was direct and to the point.

No wonder God choose Peter to be His spokesperson on the day of Pentecost! To stand us in a place where Jesus had just been crucified a few weeks earlier! “You murdered the Messiah…repent and be baptized!”

Acts 2:23 “…you, with the help of wicked men, put him to death by nailing him to the cross.”

Characteristics: Confident / Assertive / Direct

Contemporary Examples: Billy Graham / Greg Laurie / Who do you know who is confrontational?

YOU must realize that there are some people in your world who won’t come to Christ until someone like Peter holds their feet to the fire.

Cautions:

· Be sure to use tact when confronting people with truth to keep them from becoming unnecessarily offended.

· Speak the truth in love! Eph 4:15 The Lost are not your enemies!

· Our words should be full of grace and seasoned with salt. Col 4:4-6 Pray that I may proclaim it clearly, as I

should. 5 Be wise in the way you act toward outsiders; make the most of every opportunity. 6 Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone.

On a scale of 1 -10 how Confrontational are you? ____ (0 – Not at all) (10 – Very Confrontational)

INTELLECTUAL STYLE

Biblical Example: Paul

  • Could be confrontational but the hallmark of his approach was his logical and reasoned presentation of the Gospel message. Point in case the book of Romans.
  • Highly educated, trained by one of the best teachers in the land.
  • He could argue a point and counter a point like none other.

(Acts 17) The case of the “unknown god.”

  • These Philosophers would not have related well to Peters approach.
  • They needed more than “Just accept it by Faith.”

Characteristics: Inquisitive / Analytical / Logical

Contemporary Examples: Josh McDowell / Lee Stobel / Who do you know who is intellectual?

Cautions: Do not substitute giving answers for giving the Gospel message, and be careful of becoming argumentative. Avoid foolish arguments! 2 Tim 2:23 Don’t have anything to do with foolish and stupid arguments, because you know they produce quarrels. (NIV)

On a scale of 1 -10 how Intellectual are you? __________ (0 – Not at all) (10 – Very Intellectual)

TESTIMONIAL STYLE

Biblical Example: Blind Man (John 9) “All I know is that I used to be blind, and now I can see.”

The blind man had an experience in his life that was worth talking about!

John 9:24-25 A second time they summoned the man who had been blind. "Give glory to God," they said. "We know this man is a sinner." 25 He replied, "Whether he is a sinner or not, I don’t know. One thing I do know. I was blind but now I see!" (NIV)

No theological debate here. All I know is what happened to me. I used to be this way… I met this man named Jesus… I’m this way now!

Characteristics: Clear communicator / Story teller / Good listener

Contemporary Examples: Max Lucado / Andy Stanley / who do you know who is testimonial?

Cautions:

  • Beware of talking about yourself but not relating your experience to the other person’s life. You first need to listen to them to be able to connect your story to their situation.
  • Pray about how many details to give.

On a scale of 1 -10 how Testimonial are you? __________ (0 – Not at all) (10 – Very Testimonial)

Your Story

Your friends are interested. Your friends can relate to it. Your story is hard to argue with.

6. What type of concluding question could you add to the end of your story to challenge the hearer?

EXTRA NOTES

DO vs. Done

This illustration is a natural follow-up to the question:

“Would you like to know the difference between religion and Christianity?”

Narrative

Outline

The difference between Religion and Christianity is:

 

Religion is spelled “D-O.” It consists of trying to do enough good things to somehow please God, earn His forgiveness, and gain entrance into heaven. This self-effort plan can take on many forms, from trying to be a good, moral person, to becoming an active participant in an organized religion – Christian or otherwise.

Religion

  • Is spelled “D-O”
  • Trying to do enough good things to please God

The problem is we can never know when we have done enough. Even worse, the Bible makes it clear that we can never do enough in Romans 3:23: “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” Simply put, the “D-O” plan cannot bring us peace with God, or even peace with ourselves.

The Problem

  • We can never know when we have done enough
  • The Bible says that we can never do enough (Romans 3:23)

Christianity, however, is spelled “D-O-N-E.”

In other words, that which we could never do for ourselves, Christ has already done for us. He lived the perfect life we could never live, and He died on the cross to pay for each of our wrongdoings. And now He freely offers us His gift of forgiveness and leadership for our lives.

Christianity

  • Is spelled “D-O-N-E”
  • Christ did what we could never do

– Lived the perfect life we could not

– Died on the cross to pay for our wrongdoings

But, it’s not enough just to know this; we have to humbly receive what He has done for us. And we do that by asking for His forgiveness and leadership on our lives.

Our Response

  • It’s not enough just to know this.
  • We have to receive what He has done for us
  • By asking for His forgiveness and leadership in our lives

(At this point, ask them a follow-up question like: “Does this make sense to you?” or “What do you think about what I just said?”)

Their Response

  • Does this make sense to you?
  • What do you think about what I just said?

Slide1

Last week we learned that as a church we are called to be a lifesaving house and not a country club. We committed to swim in the sea of humanity with Jesus and join in His efforts to save those who are drowning. As we work together to rescue those who are drowning in the sea of sin, we will use similar lifesaving methods.  But, just like all lifeguards aren’t the same, we are not all the same either and  we may use different lifesaving methods that fit us and our personality better.  If we use lifesaving methods that are more natural to us and our personalities our lifesaving efforts will prove more effective.  Biblically we see Six Life Saver Styles of Evangelism in the New Testament:  The Confrontational Style, Intellectual style, Testimonial Style, Interpersonal Style, Invitational Style, and the Serving Style.

This Sunday at Believers we will explore Life Saver Styles 1, 2, and 3.

Lifelines Someone is Drowning! Believers Statesboro 10-13-13

One of the scariest the things you can hear when you are at the beach of pool, is someone yelling, “Someone’s drowning!” You heart beats fast and you adrenalin is pumping as you race to rescue them.

When it comes to saving souls, we as a church have to ask ourselves if the words. “Someone is drowning” still move us to action like it used to. As a church are we still a lifesaving station or are we a social club? Are we still a church for the unchurched or have we morphed into a church for churched people?

Let’s talk about the vision of William Booth (1829-1912) who along with his wife, Catherine, founded The Salvation Army in 1865 in their home country, England. His passion for the lost, especially those who were considered "irredeemable" by the established church, was legendary. His whole life can be summed up in his own words, "Go for souls – and go for the worst!" Read His Vision http://www.lastdaysministries.org/Articles/1000008646/Last_Days_Ministries/LDM/Discipleship_Teachings/Other/Who_Cares.aspx

Where are you in this picture today?

  • A lot us here today have been rescued from the water. We are on the rock.
  • Some of you are drowning in the water, but be encouraged, Jesus is here to rescue you.

o I have been rescued from the water and I have become preoccupied with my life on the dock.

o I have been rescued from the water and spend most of my time trying to get closer to God at the top of the rock.

o I have been rescued from the water, I am enjoying my life on the dock, and occasionally I participate in a rescue effort.

o I have been rescued from the water, I am enjoying my life on the dock, but I actively participate in rescue missions.

o I have been rescued from the water, my passion is to rescue others and I actively choose to go back into the waters to rescue drowning souls.

o I am drowning and I am in need of a rescue.

Where is Christ Jesus, via His Spirit today?

  • He is still in the dark sea calling on you and me to come help Him.
  • He is in the water trying to pull you to safety.

Romans 10:9-13

9 That if you confess with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord," and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.

10 For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved.

11 As the Scripture says, "Anyone who trusts in him will never be put to shame."

12 For there is no difference between Jew and Gentile– the same Lord is Lord of all and richly blesses all who call on him,

13 for, "Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved." (NIV)

  • Jesus is, through His Spirit, in the midst of this drowning multitude, struggling to save them.

Will you go?

  • Look where you are standing? The surging sea of life crowded with perishing multitudes rolls

up to the very spot on which you stand.

  • Someone’s Drowning! Do you care?

Rom 10:14-15

14 How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them?

15 And how can they preach unless they are sent? As it is written, "How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!" (NIV)

Why do you have such beautiful feet?

  • Because those who are struggling in the water can see the feet of those who can swim and those who are holding lifelines out to them and that is a beautiful sight to a drowning person.

Jesus is calling on you to jump into the sea – to go to His side and help Him rescue others!

  • Will you jump?
  • Will you place yourself absolutely at His disposal?

So here we are still lingering on the bank:

  • Thinking / Singing / Praying about the poor perishing souls

But do you care enough to lay aside:

  • your shame
  • your pride
  • your worries about other people’s opinions
  • your love of ease
  • and all the selfish loves that have kept you back for so long

Do we care enough to lay it all aside and rush to the rescue of this multitude of dying men and women?

Does the surging sea look dark and dangerous?

Unquestionably, yes it can be very dangerous.

  • There is no doubt that the leap for you, as for everyone who takes it, means difficulty and scorn and suffering.
  • For you, it may mean more than this.
    • It may mean death.

He who beckons you from the sea, however, knows what it will mean – and knowing, He still calls to you and bids you come. You must do it! You cannot hold back.

You have enjoyed yourself in Christianity long enough:

  • You have had pleasant feelings
  • pleasant songs
  • pleasant meetings
  • pleasant prospects

There has been a lot of human happiness, much clapping of hands and shouting of praises – very much of heaven on earth.

Now then, go to God and tell Him you are prepared as much as necessary to turn your back upon it all, and that you are willing to spend the rest of your days struggling in the midst of these perishing multitudes, whatever it may cost you.

You must do it. You must be a lifeline to others. You hold the lifeline in your hands.

  • With the light that has now broken in upon your mind, and the call that is now sounding in your ears, and the beckoning hands that are now before your eyes, you have no alternative.
  • To go down among the perishing crowds is your duty
  • Your happiness from now on will consist in sharing their misery
  • Your ease in sharing their pain
  • Your crown in helping them to bear their cross
  • Your heaven in going into the very jaws of hell to rescue them

Now, what will you do?

People are drowning and we are called to be a lifesaving house rather than a country club.

Next Step: I commit myself to swim in the sea of humanity with Jesus and join in His efforts to save someone who is drowning!

Life Group and Family Devotional App

  1. Looking at William Booth’s vision, where are you in that picture? Are you drowning, are you recued on the dock, or are you actively in the water trying to rescue others?
  1. In this picture where would you expect to see Christ Jesus actively working? Why?
  1. Why do you think we become so comfortable on the dock while others are drowning all around us?
  1. We often spend more time trying to climb the mountain to get closer to God, not realizing that if we want to be close to Him we need to be in the water? In what ways have you found yourself doing this?
  1. Have we become a church for churched people or are we a church for the unchurched? Are we still an active Life Saving Station?
  1. Share ideas on how we as individuals can help rescue others and how we as a church can be an outward focused church, or as Pastor Scott says, a church for the unchurched.
