I can’t wait till the series starts!!! I got a few friends that I hope will come to church to hear the talks. Hopefully their questions eill be answered, and of course the much bigger question of who is Jesus will also be answered for them.
Does anyone else have friends that are planning to come??
I too am looking forward to the ‘got questions’ series. I really hope that people who don’t know Jesus come along to hear the best news ever and not people trying to push their own agenda. It’s exciting but a little scary. Do you think we will need security? I might ask Blocker.
I have a friend who I’ve chatted with about suffering and I’d love him to come in week 3 – unfortunately he’s moving to Sydney the weekend before! So instead I’m just going to invite him to week 1: what’s the meaning of life? I’m sure its a question he’s wondered about somewhere along the way!
The early Christians didn’t have security they just copped it on the chin. Speaking of copping it on the chin, I want to encourage all my brothers and sisters at SCPC to be inviting their friends, family, workmates, team mates, neighbours, etc to the ‘Got Questions’ series.
I know it takes courage to invite people along to these events but we need to remember that we are serving Jesus and that he is our master. Jesus is the one we need to fear not other people. There is nothing wrong with being afraid but I think it is wrong if you let your fear of people guide whether you are going to serve Jesus. It is NOT a spiritual gift to be able to invite people to hear about Jesus, it’s something that ALL Christians should be DEVOTED to and PASSIONATE about.
So let’s get out there and have the courage to invite others to hear about the Jesus who saved us.
Definitely looking forward to getting my friends along to hear answers to many of the questions they have. I’m excited because I’ve already had some positive responses from friends who are ready to come and check out church and find out what the Bible says about the different questions they have.
It’s great seeing how God is already working in their hearts before they’ve even come.
I really liked what you said David, about telling people about Jesus is not a gift, its something EVERYONE should be doing. I think I get caught in the trap of thinking, “but its not my gift…”
I really, really, really, hope that lots of people will come and hear all about the amazing news of Jesus!!!
You guys rock! I wish i was gonna be there for that series, it sounds really exciting! I’m sure God’s love will shine through you guys as you invite people, people that you live side by side with, along to hear the greatest news of all. I love you all!
