8 Acts 8 29 The Spirit told Philip, “Go and join that chariot.” 30 When Philip ran up to it, he heard him reading the prophet Isaiah, and said, “Do you understand what you’re reading?” 31 “How can I,” he said, “unless someone guides me?” So he invited Philip to come up and sit with him.

9 Acts 8 34 The eunuch replied to Philip, “I ask you, who is the prophet saying this about—himself or another person?” 35 So Philip proceeded [j] to tell him the good news about Jesus, beginning from that Scripture.j 36 As they were traveling down the road, they came to some water. The eunuch said, “Look, there’s water! What would keep me from being baptized?” [ 37 And Philip said, “If you believe with all your heart you may.” And he replied, “I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God.”]

10 Conversion What is conversion?

11 Conversion Before: Ephesians 2:1-3 Ephesians 4: Corinthians 4:3-4 Galatians 5:19-21 After: Ephesians 2:4-5 Ephesians 4: Corinthians 4:5-6 Galatians 5:22-25

12 Conversion – How? UnbelieverBeliever

13 Conversion – How? UnbelieverBeliever Holy Spirit

14 John 16: “But now I am going away to Him who sent Me, and not one of you asks Me, ‘Where are You going?’ 6 Yet, because I have spoken these things to you, sorrow has filled your heart. 7 Nevertheless, I am telling you the truth. It is for your benefit that I go away, because if I don’t go away the Counselor will not come to you. If I go, I will send Him to you. 8 When He comes, He will convict the world about sin, righteousness, and judgment: 9 About sin, because they do not believe in Me; 10 about righteousness, because I am going to the Father and you will no longer see Me; 11 and about judgment, because the ruler of this world has been judged.

15 The Holy Spirit Will Convict: Sin – Our need to believe in the life of Christ

16 The Holy Spirit Will Convict: Sin – Our need to believe in the life of Christ Righteousness – That Jesus has paved the way for us to be found standing in the family of God

17 The Holy Spirit Will Convict: Sin – Our need to believe in the life of Christ Righteousness – That Jesus has paved the way for us to be found standing in the family of God Judgment – Satan has already been defeated; judgment is inevitable, and doing our own will is futile

18 The Process of Salvation

19 Conversion Is not about completing a set of studies but about experiencing Holy Spirit Conviction -My eyes were blind but now I see

20 2 Corinthians 7:10 10 Godly sorrow brings repentance that leads to salvation and leaves no regret, but worldly sorrow brings death.

21 Conversion – How? Unbeliever Sin Righteousness Judgment Believer Baptized into Christ - Forgiveness of Sin - Indwelling of the Spirit - Family of God Holy SpiritREPENTANCE

22 Getting Going Find out about their relationship with God— where they want to go Suggest a Bible study that can help Make sure they understand what they are doing Make sure they know if others are coming Prepare for each study individually

23 The Purpose of Studies 1.Expose misconceptions about the biblical topic 2.Inspire your friend to biblically understand and pursue that topic in their life

24 Pointed Questions Most studies should be Question Focused -This develops a dependency on the Bible -It lets them experience the thrill of discovering things for themselves -It allows them to draw the same conclusions and convictions that you came to through the prompting of the Spirit -Asking good questions is more difficult and takes more work than preaching -It allows you to draw out their heart

25 Questioning on Mark 4:13 Preaching Patrick: Jesus here was saying that if they didn’t understand this parable then they wouldn’t be able to understand any others. Manipulating Manny: Isn’t it clear that if you don’t get this parable you will be in the dark to everything else that I teach you? Pointless Paula: So what do you get out of that? Limiting Linus: Do you understand that Jesus was saying that this parable was important to understand?

26 Pointed Questions Causes your friend to think critically—draw conclusions Empowers them to read and study God’s word Builds confidence in their ability to understand the Scriptures You are teaching them to fish rather than giving them one Proverbs 20:5: The purposes of a person’s heart are deep waters, but one who has insight draws them out.

27 Pointed Questions get to Heart We want to help them get to their heart with gentleness and respect Progressive questions: - Interpretation - Application - Contemplation Keep focused on aim of the study as you ask questions Don’t avoid appropriate confrontation (from the Scripture) in the name of being gentle

28 Pointed Questions InterpretationWhat... ? ApplicationHow..... ? ContemplationWhy... ?

29 Matthew 6:33 Interpretation – What does it mean to seek something first? - What does it mean to seek the kingdom? Application – How are you going to make God’s kingdom the highest priority in your life? Contemplation – Why do you want to take on such a calling? - Why would you put God’s kingdom ahead of your own personal agenda?

30 His Word

31 The Focus of Each Study The Point – What is the primary focus of each study Scripture of Focus – What Scriptures lay at the heart of each study Questions – What pointed questions do you want to ask during the study Action Points– What main point of conviction do you want your friend to take with them

32 The Main Point The Point – 1. To help people understand misconceptions they have had about the need for the Word of God in their life; the importance of it; and our commitment to it 2. To help people understand the importance and purpose of obeying God’s word above all else

33 Scriptures of Focus Primary Scriptures –Mark 4:13 –Mark 4:14-20 –James 1:22-25

34 Questions The Questions – What pointed questions do you want to ask during the study –Why would you want to obey the word of God in your life?

35 Action Points The Take Away Convictions – What main point of conviction do you want your friend to take with them –We want our friends to leave with a specific conviction about their need to learn and study the word of God –And a conviction about obeying it

36 James 1: But be doers of the word and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves. 23 Because if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man looking at his own face [i] in a mirror. 24 For he looks at himself, goes away, and immediately forgets what kind of man he was. 25 But the one who looks intently into the perfect law of freedom and perseveres in it, and is not a forgetful hearer but one who does good works—this person will be blessed in what he does.i
