Knock, Knock

Tomorrow night @ Jr. High OTTAGETTU, we’ll finish our three-lesson series on evangelism.  Our goal is to help our teenagers confidently & effectively tell their friends about their faith in Jesus & what it means to become a follower of Christ.

In this final lesson, we’ll examine Acts8:26-40.  In this passage, we read about Philip’s life-changing conversation with a man who had great authority under the queen of Ethiopia.  This eunuch was reading passages from the book of Isaiah but was unable to understand it.  Led by the Holy Spirit, Philip initiated a spiritual conversation, asked questions, & listened to what this man had to say.  This story is a great illustration of how God will bring us into contact with people who are searching for answers.
This week, I’d encourage you to find a few minutes to talk with your teenager about our lesson.  You might want to use these questions to generate some discussion:
  • What are some of the common reasons or excuses Christians give for not talking to other people about their faith?
  • Are any of those reasons valid?  How might you overcome these?
  • Do you think it’s important to share about God’s love-to share the gospel-with people who aren’t yet Christians?  Why or why not?

Have a great week!
