We Are Witnesses - Part 1 of 5



“The Baton Has Been Passed”
Series: “We Are Witnesses” (Part 1 of 5)


1 In my former book, Theophilus, I wrote about all that Jesus began to do and to teach  2 until the day he was taken up to heaven, after giving instructions through the Holy Spirit to the apostles he had chosen.” -Acts 1:1-2 (NIV)

1 “Now the tax collectors and sinners were all gathering around to hear Jesus. 2 But the Pharisees and the teachers of the law muttered, “This man welcomes sinners and eats with them.” 3 Then Jesus told them this parable: 4 “Suppose one of you has a hundred sheep and loses one of them. Doesn’t he leave the ninety-nine in the open country and go after the lost sheep until he finds it? 5 And when he finds it, he joyfully puts it on his shoulders 6 and goes home. Then he calls his friends and neighbors together and says, ‘Rejoice with me; I have found my lost sheep.’ 7 I tell you that in the same way there will be more rejoicing in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who do not need to repent.” -Luke 15:1-7 (NIV)

If you know Jesus, you’ll share
His desire to reach the lost ONE.

1 “In my former book, Theophilus, I wrote about all that Jesus began to do and to teach… and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” 9 After he said this, he was taken up before their very eyes, and a cloud hid him from their sight.” -Acts 1:1, 8-9 (NIV)

1.    How is God working in you through this week’s sermon?


2.    What impacted you the most in the parable of the lost sheep?


3.    Why do you think the Pharisees and teachers of the law had issues with Jesus being around sinners?


4.    Who is your “one” you are praying for, and reaching for Jesus? If you don’t have “one”, who could be your one?


5.    Pastor Tim said, “If you know Jesus, you’ll share His desire to reach the lost.” What does this statement mean to you? How are you sharing Jesus’ desire to reach the lost?


6.    On a scale of 1-4, how would you describe your passion to do God's will? What can you do to increase it?


7.    This week, pray hard about Pastor Tim’s challenge, and ask God how you can be a part of this journey!
