How To Share The Gospel
Episode 2: Having a Heart for People
Throughout the earthly ministry of Jesus, we see his great compassion and care for the lost people around him. He healed beggars, he ate with tax collectors, he cared for those society cast out. Are we using his model of compassion and care shared throughout the gospel when interacting in a lost world around us?
- How would you describe the heart of Christ for the lost?
- How does the gospel itself train us to share Christ’s heart for our neighbors?
Bible Verse Meditation: Mark 8:22-26, ESV
And they came to Bethsaida. And some people brought to him a blind man and begged him to touch him. And he took the blind man by the hand and led him out of the village, and when he had spit on his eyes and laid his hands on him, he asked him, “Do you see anything?” And he looked up and said, “I see people, but they look like trees, walking.” Then Jesus laid his hands on his eyes again; and he opened his eyes, his sight was restored, and he saw everything clearly. And he sent him to his home, saying, “Do not even enter the village.”
“Lord, would you help us extend the compassion and care you modeled so perfectly for us during your earthly ministry? Help us have eyes to see, ears to hear, and hands quick to find opportunities to share your love with others so that we might be your image bearers pointing a lost world to you.”
