Living as an Insider
October 16, 2015
Becoming more effective as an "Insider" in reaching the lost around us. a contemporary, real world, biblical evangelistic study. (Based on the longer seminar of the same name, compiled by Mike Shamy of the Navigators).
In this study, you will discover . . .
God has called “us,” “you,” to be an ambassador a “bona fide” missionary to the lost people in your life sphere of influence.
These lost people are as significant to God as people anywhere in the world. Christ died as much for them.
We are not less important to God’s determined will to reach the world because we are not called to a foreign or impoverished mission field somewhere else. The Bible teaches us that each disciple of Christ is a missionary, a minister, integral to His Kingdom’s advancement:
The Great Commission: Then Jesus came to them and said, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. (19) Therefore go and make disciples of all na6ons, bap6zing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, (20) and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” —Matthew 28:18-20, NIV
The Mandate to Be Jesus’ Witnesses: “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth." —Acts 1:8, NIV
