Learning a Way to Share Jesus- Week 2

babyandmary

Welcome back to the Women’s Bible Cafe as we study Share Jesus Without Fear by William Fay. This week we’re discussing Learning a Way to Share Jesus, based on your reading assignment. We learned these three steps to sharing Jesus:

  1. A series of 5 questions to determine someone’s spiritual temperature
  2. A series of 7 Bible verses to ask the person to read aloud
  3. A series of 5 questions to summarize the truth of the verses
As you remember from last week, you cannot fail when you share Jesus with others. You’re staying obedient to God, the Holy Spirit is working, and you might be one of the 7.6 contacts the person needs to hear. “Successful witnessing begins the moment you are obedient to respond and to share,” writes William Fay.

Did you take time this week to answer these important questions for yourself?

  1. What was your life like before you came to Jesus?
  2. How did you become a Christian?
  3. What difference has Christ made in your life?

If you haven’t answered these questions, take time this week and complete the assignment. Then write down the 5 questions, 7 Bible verses and 5 more questions from your book. If you’re using the workbook format, these are located in the back of the book on a card to carry with you. If you have time, laminate it and carry the card in your handbag.

We’ve already had some incredible discussions in small groups this week, as you share your testimony with others. Continue to practice the questions and share this with others as God presents opportunities. Don’t be discouraged if you missed an opportunity…it’s simply the Holy Spirit convicting you so you’re recognize it the next time.

We have one more week of study, then we’ll take a break the week of Christmas, and finish the study the last week of December. Feel free to read ahead of the group if you’d like.

    One of the things I learned this week is that I can’t fail because it’s up to me to share Jesus and God does the converting! I think that was one of my biggest fears. What if I did it wrong and failed in converting someone to Christ?!? Now I know that can’t happrn. Seems so simple I can’t believe I hadn’t already figured that out. And it is also a great tool writing those scriptures at the top of the pages in my bible like the book suggests.

      Isn’t this amazing? We’ve been held captive to fear rather than obedient to God. This book has been very helpful to me.

    I was born into a Christian family and I was a practicing Christian for many years. I turned by back on Christ and recently came back to him. Those years without Christ were bleak. I was always looking for fulfillment and it felt like I always came out darker and sadder then the day before. I fell into a very difficult, long depression. I saw a therapist, I practiced a lot of yoga hoping it would fill the hole and despair. It didn’t. Yoga gave me a temporary high and a very healthy body! From the outside looking in, one could think I had a great life. But from my perspective, I was crushed. I knew there was more because my childhood and teenaged years were so rich (thanks mom and dad!). But, I didn’t put together that I was missing Christ. My parents sent me letters from time to time with Bible verses and always sent religious Christmas and Easter cards to which I invariably rolled my eyes : (

    These cards must have been part of my 7.6 contacts. Eventually I was reunited with a childhood friend who led my back to Christ as I asked him back into my heart.

    Since asking Christ into my heart, my life has changed so much. I still practice yoga sometimes, but it is only a form of exercise, not a hope for religious transformation! I moved to a great community, I met a man and fell in love. I have joined a community of worshipers who love to get together for meals. I used to spend so much time alone in darkness, now I am rarely alone. Before, I was stuck in a dead-end job, depressed in darkness. In my mind I used to regurgitate the words of well meaning friends, “You need to…., Stop doing …” I was repeating mantra but nothing ever changed. Now, I turn to the word of God and my path is illuminated. I have extra time and am working on a series of short stories and interview series which I hope to get published one day. I completely surrender these things to the Lord and in return, my life is full of hope, trust and faith.

    And this year I have a Christmas tree full of lights and angel ornaments for the first time in 15 years!

    This week, God taught me that He really can move mountains! A friend of mine, who is an atheist, has ignored me for the past year, I sent him a message saying that God loves him and that I believe deep down my friend knows this or he wouldn’t spend so much time on FaceBook trying to disprove God. My friend wrote back! He didn’t want to talk about religion, but he was very kind. He has ignored my previous attempts to talk to him about seven times. Please pray for him to come back to Christ if you can. His name is Jeff. Thank you.

    I am so excited about the revelation I had for my prison pen pals. I sent my first letter today with only a few of the question from page 145, I choose # 1 #6 and #8 then I told her we will talk more once she responds.
    I’m excited to see what she says.
    ““““““““““““““““““““““““““““““
    What has God taught you during this week’s lesson?

    Its funny how I get caught up the things that are not mine. For instance it is not my job to bring someone to Christ I can only plant the seed but I was worried about them converting right then and there. But before chapter 6 we learn to plant the seed but this week on page 68 I learned to be “thankful” God simply wants me to be thankful wow. If I could underline and bold anything in this post it would be THANKFUL…
    That was a moment for me.
    God bless
