Seeking the lost
Spreading the Gospel
Been on the streets for over 15 years
He is known by his street buddies as "Cool Hand Luke" for that is his favorite movie. Like Paul Newman in the movie he has learned to hustle his way across the states and back picking up odd jobs to make ends meet. Know as 'Jami' to his close friends; Jami has always had a hard time understanding Jesus and the Bible. You on the other hand feel like you have nothing in common with him. Where do you and I start in letting Jami know that God's love is for him and isn't really that hard to understand.
Local College Student
Julia attends the local junior college in your town. She is unsure what she wants to do in life or a career for that matter. Product of a broken home she has dealt with the pain and is in a good space at the present time. What does Jesus, the church, or Christianity have to offer her that she hasn't achieved on her own? She believes Jesus is a good man and had some great things to say, yet this religious thing is not something she sees herself getting involved in. How far would you go to reach out to Julia to let her know the Jesus you love and worship?
That is currently the number of people who don't know Jesus, nor have they made a decision to accept and follow Him. The number sounds staggering and how can one person reach so many? Should you even feel responsible as they are in cities, states, countries that you will never get to for finances are really tight this year. Yet, each person needs Jesus. So reach out to those in your family or neighborhood and share the love of Jesus!
Totally rejects Jesus
Could anyone be so repulsed at the mention of the name Jesus - Derrick is!
Derrick looks put together making All-Star Line-backer for his school. Christians are a joke to him with their religious talk and pious attitude. He is not going to hell because there is no hell or heaven only here and now. If we have only the here and now then why not make the most of it! You have avoided Derrick long enough yet knowing that he recently lost his dad to a car accident you believe now is the right time to share Jesus with him. How far will you go to reach him?
Between the Gospel of Luke and the Acts of the Apostles one man writes over thirty-seven thousand words to encourage a friend's faith in Jesus Christ. Each time we present new scenarios here on the Seek page it is to challenge each of us to reach out and share Jesus. Jesus said in Matthew 6:33 "Seek first the kingdom of God and all these things will be added unto you". However, Mark 11:24 tells us that "all things for which you pray and ask, believe that your have received them, and they will be granted unto you". This applies to our outreach with the gospel also, so pray to the Lord of the Harvest and see what He can do for you!
