Points to Remember:
The central focus of the Great Commission is to make disciples.
What does a disciple look like? Matthew 4:19
- Follow Christ (relational)
- Make (transformational)
- Fish (missional)
Am I willing to respond to the call of Christ to become a disciple.
Key actions (verbs) = go, make, baptizing, and teaching
4 Things we can do:
1. Identify people in your circle of influenece who are outside of Christ.
2. Reconnect with people.
-have fun together with them
-invite them to serve the community with you
3. Pray for them
-pray for the lost that God would touch their hearts
4. Ask good questions
-What do you think the church should be doing?
-What is your faith experience?
-Ask if you can tell them your story, then tell them God's story.
