Made for a Mission part 4: WHO is my mission?

  • Recap: Week 1- We are all called!

  • Week 2- What's my mission? Sharing Jesus with others

  • Week 3- What's my message? Jesus saves, share your testimony

  • Week 4- WHO is my mission? Everybody is our mission.

  • How do we do this? It is our duty as a believer to share the good news with somebody.

  • 2 examples of who Jesus chose as His mission

    • Nicodemus, a church leader needed Jesus.

    • The Samaritan Woman. Samaritans were viewed poorly by the Jews. They sullied their bloodline by marrying the natives in the land. Most Jews avoided Samaria. Jesus made a point to be there. The Samaritan women spread the word about Jesus and many were saved because of that fact.

  • Everybody is your mission!

  • When thinking of WHO, remember FRANCE:

    • Friends

    • Relatives

    • Acquaintances

    • Neighbors

    • Co-Workers/Classmates

    • (Keep your) eyes open for everyday opportunities

  • Pray for God to give you His heart for the lost.

 

 

Bible Passages:

John 2:24-25

Jesus, however, would not entrust himself to them, since he knew them all 25 and because he did not need anyone to testify about man; for he himself knew what was in man. No one is off limits when it comes to sharing your faith.

John 3:1

There was a man from the Pharisees named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews.

John 4:1-18

When Jesus[a] learned that the Pharisees had heard he was making and baptizing more disciples than John 2 (though Jesus himself was not baptizing, but his disciples were), 3 he left Judea and went again to Galilee. 4 He had to travel through Samaria; 5 so he came to a town of Samaria called Sychar near the property[b] that Jacob had given his son Joseph. 6 Jacob’s well was there, and Jesus, worn out from his journey, sat down at the well. It was about noon.[c] 7 A woman of Samaria came to draw water. “Give me a drink,” Jesus said to her, 8 because his disciples had gone into town to buy food. 9 “How is it that you, a Jew, ask for a drink from me, a Samaritan woman?” she asked him. For Jews do not associate with[d] Samaritans.[e] 10 Jesus answered, “If you knew the gift of God, and who is saying to you, ‘Give me a drink,’ you would ask him, and he would give you living water.” 11 “Sir,” said the woman, “you don’t even have a bucket, and the well is deep. So where do you get this ‘living water’? 12 You aren’t greater than our father Jacob, are you? He gave us the well and drank from it himself, as did his sons and livestock.” 13 Jesus said, “Everyone who drinks from this water will get thirsty again. 14 But whoever drinks from the water that I will give him will never get thirsty again. In fact, the water I will give him will become a well[f] of water springing up in him for eternal life.” 15 “Sir,” the woman said to him, “give me this water so that I won’t get thirsty and come here to draw water.” 16 “Go call your husband,” he told her, “and come back here.” 17 “I don’t have a husband,” she answered. “You have correctly said, ‘I don’t have a husband,’” Jesus said. 18 “For you’ve had five husbands, and the man you now have is not your husband. What you have said is true.”

John 4:39-42

Now many Samaritans from that town believed in him because of what the woman said[a] when she testified, “He told me everything I ever did.” 40 So when the Samaritans came to him, they asked him to stay with them, and he stayed there two days. 41 Many more believed because of what he said.[b] 42 And they told the woman, “We no longer believe because of what you said, since we have heard for ourselves and know that this really is the Savior of the world.”[c]
