This session looks at specific examples of how to start sharing our faith from being intentional in our friendships to sharing our testimony.
This series is written by Third Space Ministries, a charity which seeks to demonstrate the love of God in ‘third spaces’ – community spaces and leisure industries. https://thirdspaceministries.co.uk/
Start by asking for any feedback from last week, especially with the ‘taking it further’ section.
Which of the ideas in the video excite you or challenge you?
In 1 Peter 3:15 it says, ‘Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect.’ In what ways can we be prepared? How can you live a life that will prompt people to ask you about the hope that you have?
Take time in the session to consider how you would share your testimony and then practice it on each other and give feedback. Try to share it in 3 minutes! (or you could set this as something to prepare for the next session)
Based on the practical ideas shared today, what one thing would you like to put into action this week?
Taking it further:
Continue to spend time dwelling on God’s love
Continue to spend time praying for your non-Christian friends daily
Put into practice the one thing that you shared with the group
