Lost and hurting people are all around us. Jesus said he came to seek and save the lost, and he calls us into the same mission of love. But we often get bogged down in the how-tos of sharing our faith when the heart of the matter is just that, our heart. These six sessions expose us to the heart of Jesus as he shows and teaches his disciples how to have a vibrant witness that draws lost people, so they can find the way home.
"Everyone knows what it feels like to be lost. But for many people, being lost is a way of life. Sharing Christ Together teaches students how to give lost people directions. Six sessions give kids the tools they need to talk about Jesus with their friends, family, and the world: The Fathers Heart: How do I make evangelism a passionate extension of my relationship with God? Christ in Flesh and Blood: When it comes to evangelism, what does it mean to be the body of Christ? Sowing Seeds: How did Jesus actually spread the good news? Who Is My Neighbor? How and why is it important to share Jesus with people who are from different cultures? Teaming Up: Why did Jesus say to go out in pairs? What does that have to do with how I talk to people about Jesus? Up a Tree: What do I do when I encounter people who make me uncomfortable? Sharing Christ Together will fill your students hearts with Jesus and allow them to share the love theyve experienced with those who need a savior. "
