Bible Study Wednesday, March 30, 2005

Posted on Wed, Mar 30, 2005

Bible Study Wednesday, March 30, 2005 was taught by Assistant Pastor Mark Porter. 
Lesson taught from Chapters 36 & 37 of the Purpose Driven Life by Rick Warren
Chapter 36:  Made For A Mission
Points to Ponder:
Mission comes from the Latin word for sending.
Why are our missions so important?
I.  Your mission is a continuation Jesus mission on earth.
 Jesus calls us not only to come to him, but to go for him.
 The Great Commission was given to every follower of Jesus, not to pastors and missionaries alone.
 You are the only Christian some people will ever know, and your mission is to share Jesus with them.
II. Your mission is a wonderful privilege.
 Your mission involved two great privileges:  working with God and representing him
III. Telling others how they can have eternal life is the greatest thing you can do for them.
 We have the greatest news in the world, and sharing it is the greatest kindness you can show to anyone.
IV. Your mission has eternal significance.
 The consequences of your mission will last forever; the consequences of your job will not.
 The clock is ticking down on your life mission, so dont delay another day
 God wants you to share the Good News where you are
V. Your mission gives your life meaning.
 If you fail to fulfill your God-given mission on earth, you will have wasted the life God gave you.
VI. Gods timetable for historys conclusion is connected to the completion of our commission.
 What we do know for sure is this: Jesus will not return until everyone God want to hear the Good News has heard it.
 It is easy to get distracted; because Satan would rather have you do anything besides your faith.
Chapter 37:  Sharing your Live Message
Points to Ponder:
I. Your Life Message includes your testimony
 Your testimony is the story of how Christ has made a difference in your life.
 Shared stories build a relational bridge that Jesus can walk across from your heart to theirs
 A personal testimony consists of:
O What my life was like before I met Jesus
O How I realized I needed Jesus
O How I committed my life to Jesus
O The difference Jesus has made in my life
II. Your Life Message includes your life lessons
 Your life message is the truths that God has taught you from experiences with him
 These are lessons and insights you have learned about God, relationships, problems, temptations, and other aspects of life.
III. Your Life Message includes sharing your godly passions
 Your godly passions are the issues God shaped you to care abut most
 God gives some people a godly passion to champion a cause
 God gives us different passions so that everything he wants done in the world will get done
IV. Your Life Message includes the Good News
 The Good News is the message of salvation through Jesus Christ
 We must care about unbelievers because God does
Is anyone going to be in heaven because of you?
