Weve all heard them. "It was this big." "You should have seen the one that got away." People love to tell stories of their fishing adventures. When it comes to faith, however, most people clam up. Why is it we cant talk about what God has done in our life as naturally as we can spin fishing tales? This six-part DVD explores the motivation behind sharing our faith and how it can become a natural part of our lives. Its companion study guide is complete with a leaders guide and six lessons, including conversation-starting exercises, discussion questions, and application steps.
Fishing stories. Weve all heard them. "It was this big." "You should have seen the one that got away." People love to tell stories of their fishing adventures. When it comes to faith, however, most people clam up. Why is it we cant talk about what God has done in our lives as naturally as we can spin fishing tales?
In this six-part DVD, Andy Stanley explores the motivation behind sharing your faith and how it can become a natural part of your life. Sessions include:
Part 1: We Were All Fish Once
The foundation of our call to be "fishers of men" is the perspective that we too were once in a position of needing to hear the good news about Jesus. Recalling our own need helps us grasp the importance of answering Gods call to "go fish."
Part 2: Why Fish?
In our culture, there are so many reasons not to fish that it is important to recall why we need to fish. This message explains that Christianity is based on historical events that must be reported in order to be realized; moreover, Christianity is too counterintuitive to be recognized without help. Unless we tell others about Jesus, theyll never know.
Part 3: Fish Guts
Sometimes our fears keep us from sharing the message of Christ with those who have never heard. We must remember that God is in control, and we have been invited to participate in what He is up to. If we are to be fishers of men, we must ask God to enable us to have the courage to say something when an opportunity to share His love is given to us.
Part 4: Fishing Buddies
Whats the relationship between building the church and being a fisher of men? Fishing was never intended to be a solo mission. The church was meant to partner with us in the fishing process.
Part 5: Muddy Water
Unless we are able to articulate the message of Jesus clearly and effectively, our efforts to be fishers of men will be hindered. Surprisingly few Christians are skilled at making a simple presentation of the gospel. Often, we overcomplicate it. Learn a simple presentation of the gospel that you can easily share with others.
Part 6: The One That Got Away
It is easy to become consumed in our Christian world and forget about those who dont know God. It is our responsibility to go back to those people and share what weve discovered.
Story Behind the Book
Andy Stanley, senior pastor of three North Point Ministries campuses, with a cumulative congregation of more than twenty thousand, has had countless conversations with everyday Christians who struggle to share their faith with confidence and ease. Though not everyone has "the gift," evangelism is something were each called to. This curriculum was designed to take the fear out of sharing the good news of Christ, and to help you talk about it as naturally as you would that exciting fishing trip last weekend!
Communicator, author, and pastor, ANDY STANLEY founded Atlanta-based North Point Ministries in 1995. Today, NPM is comprised of six churches in the Atlanta area and a network 30 churches around the globe collectively serving nearly 70,000 people weekly.
As host of Your Move with Andy Stanley, with over five million messages consumed each month through television and podcasts, and author of more than 20 books, including The New Rules for Love, Sex & Dating, Ask It, How to Be Rich, Deep & Wide, Visioneering, and Next Generation Leader, he is considered one of the most-influential pastors in America.
Andy and his wife, Sandra, have three grown children and live near Atlanta.
