SPEAK? A Series From the Book of Mark (and Upcoming Events)

 

THE SERMON

Why do we speak? Sy Huffer leads us through Mark 1:1-15 as we wrestle with the importance of the good news and why we need to share it.

THE READING CHALLENGE

THE QUESTIONS

QUESTION 1: PRAY

How does your prayer life change when you approach God with this question: “Who do I know that is dying to hear good news?”

QUESTION 2: SPEAK

This whole sermon series is about SPEAKING. The entire purpose of it is to move our congregation to become a culture where we tell people the good news about Jesus. This question is going to be hammered a lot this sermon series: “Who is close to you but far from God?” Whoever that is, commit to speaking to those names the good news about Jesus.

QUESTION 3: GROW

Who can hold you accountable to grow in your speaking about Jesus? Find a small group leader, a family member, an elder, or a trusted friend to help you grow in your evangelism. How many people did you tell about Jesus last year? What does it look like to grow beyond that number this year?

QUESTION 4: LOVE

Who in your life needs to hear the good news that: there is hope in the midst of despair; there is good that will overcome evil, there is acceptance that swallows up rejection; there is a kingdom that will change the world?
