  • 1. LIFE  GROUP  STUDY  GUIDE   April  18,  2010   SHARE   Colossians  4:3-­4       Introduction:   Why  should  we  talk  about  faith?     With  so  many  churches,  so  many  radio  and  TV  programs  on  faith,  and  so  many   outreach  ministries  aren’t  there  enough  opportunities  for  people  to  hear  the  gospel?       DIG:   Read  Colossians  4:3-­‐4  Praying  for  doors  to  open  for  us  to  be  able  to  share  Jesus  with   others.      What  ways  have  you  seen  God  open  doors  for  you  to  share  Jesus  with  others?      Why  do  you  think  that  most  Christians  are  comfortable  in  attending  worship  and    fellowship  but  uncomfortable  in  fulfilling  the  mission  of  sharing  Jesus  with  others?     Q:  Describe  a  time  you  attempted  to  share  your  faith  at  work.  What  prompted  that   testimony?  How  did  you  feel  giving  it?  How  was  it  received?  If  you  had  to  do  it  again,   how  would  you  change  it?           Q:  When  have  you  failed  to  share  your  faith  when  you  felt  like  you  should  have?   What  kept  you  silent—was  it  fear  or  lack  of  understanding  on  how  to  do  it?  What   would  it  take  to  help  you  talk  about  your  faith  on  the  job?     Read  Colossians  4:3-­‐4  Again:    Notice  we  are  to  proclaim  the  mystery  of  Christ?   What  is  the  mystery  of  Christ?       Q:  What  happens  to  people  who  fail  to  respond  to  the  call  of  Christ?  How  does  that    impact  you  in  regards  to  sharing  Jesus  with  others?     David  said  in  the  lesson  today  that  we  are  more  prone  “to  wait  “and  decide  “not  yet  “   instead  of  seeking  and  praying  for  open  doors.  We  mistakenly  believe  that  an  open   door  should  be  easy  instead  of  seeing  that  with  every  opening  there  is  often   opposition.     Q:  In  what  ways  do  we  allow  “not  yet”  or  “wait”  thinking  stifle  our  commission?     Read  Colossians  4:4  Focus  on  proclaiming  the  message  clearly.   The  gospel  message  never  changes  but  not  all  of  us  share  the  gospel  the  same  way.     However,  it  is  time  to  debunk  the  theory  that  evangelism  is  not  part  of  your   Christian  calling.     Q:  Describe  in  just  a  few  sentences  your  hobby  and  why  you  like  it?   Q:  Now,  how  many  of  you,  with  the  same  passion,  could  describe  why  you’re  a          Christian  and  why  the  person  you  are  talking  to  is  not  a  Christian-­‐  should  believe      in  Jesus?    
  • 2.        REFLECT:   1.    How  much  would  Summerville  Church  grow  this  year  if  it  depended  on  you  to      invite  others  to  Jesus?   2.    How  many  people  have  you  invited  or  attempted  to  share  Jesus  with  in  the              past  year,  months,  or  week?   3.      How  much  emphasis  has  this  Life  Group  placed  on  the  “empty  chair”  this  year?                Honestly,  are  we  more  content  with  fellowship  than  reaching  out?   4.      Pray  for  God  to  open  doors  for  all  of  us  to  share  Jesus  with  others.       PRAYER:
