Podcast Discussion Notes

How can we effectively portray God’s free gift of redemption with the world around us?

What Do Other People See?

1. How important is it to you for someone’s words and their actions to match?

2. Do you make excuses or justification for yourself when your words and actions don’t match?

Ephesians 2:1-10 NLT

3. How much value, to you, is anything if you don’t use it? Even if the real value of the item is very high.

Ephesians 2:3 NIV

As We Grow In Our Relationship with God, Our Lives Should Look Different

4. Are there things that you used to do, but don’t do anymore because you want to honor and represent Jesus?

“If I didn’t know Jesus and I met me, would I see something I wanted to follow?” - from podcast

5. Are you further along in how you live your life and represent Jesus to the world today, than you were last month? Last year?

None of us have arrived. That is why the Paul said in Philippians 2:12 - “Work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.”

 

6. How important is it to you, to represent Jesus to others?

Ask yourself - “What do I need to change in my life to better represent Jesus to the world?”

Ephesians 2:10 NIV

God created you to do things in your life that demonstrate His love and goodness to the world around you!

Scriptural examples of good works:

Proverbs 31:8-9, Isaiah 1:7, Isaiah 58:6-7, Micah 6:8, Matthew 6:33-34, Mark 16:15, 1 Corinthians 7:17, Ephesians 4:1-6, Philippians 2:1-4, Philippians 3:12-14, 2 Timothy 1:10, Hebrews 3:1, Hebrews 12:1-2, 1 Peter 2:9-10, 1 Peter 3:15-16, 1 Peter 4:10-11

 

“Throw off the junk that’s holding you back!” - from podcast

1 Corinthians 15:33 - …bad company corrupts good morals

Amos 3:3 NLT

Daniel 12:3, Philippians 2:15

Shine Like Stars

“To a dark world, be a light, be a bright light. Don’t live the way they live.” - from podcast

Challenge
