INTRODUCTION TO SPLASH WE ARE IN A DESPERATE NEED TO RETURN TO THE JESUS WAY OF OUTREACH. TO ACCOMPLISH THIS WE NEED TO MAKE A COMMITMENT TO READ EACH CHAPTER AND REFLECT ON EACH QUESTION. SELECT A SPLASH EFFECTIVENESS PARTNER, (SEP see glossary).
INTRODUCTION TO SPLASH We will experience group time each week. To create an environment for personal change in order to approach every relationship with a kingdom agenda. For discussing how we are implementing the SPLASH concept in our lives and how we have impacted someone in our SPLASH ZONE (see glossary)
WHAT LIFE LESSONS DOES JESUS WANT US TO UNDERSTAND? Luke 7:39-50 Luke 7:39 This man, if He were a prophet, would know who and what kind of woman this is who is touching Him – shes a sinner! Luke 7:48 Your sins are forgiven.
LIFE LESSONS IN LUKE 7:39-50 1. WORK FROM A MOTIVE Luke 7:39 This man, if He were a prophet, would know who and what kind of woman this is who is touching Him – shes a sinner! Luke 7:48 Your sins are forgiven.
LIFE LESSON; LUKE 7:39-50 2. BUILD THE RELATIONSHIP THE WASHING OF THE FEET THE KISSING ON THE CHEEK THE ANOINTING OF THE HEAD IT IS VERY IMPORTANT TO MEET PEOPLE WHERE THEY ARE IN LIFE, IN ORDER TO BRING THEM WHERE THEY NEED TO BE.
Foundational Principles 1) God is everywhere and always at work advancing His kingdom. John 5:18 My Father is still working, and I am working also. John 5:19 The Son can do nothing of Himself. John 5:20 The Father loves the Son, and shows Him all things that He Himself is doing.
For Group Discussion QUESTION #1 : Can you think of a situation where your Christian Values have conflicted with the values of the crowd? QUESTION #2: Do you find it hard to develop a relationship with others because you are a Christian? QUESTION #3: Are you intentionally seeking opportunities to develop relationship?
Foundational Principles 2) Prayer is the key to seeing God at work and showing people love. 3) The harvest is abundant. Luke 10:2 The harvest is abundant, but the workers are few. Therefore pray to the Lord of the harvest to send out workers into the harvest.
MY SPLASH ZONE In Luke 10:2, the passage suggests to us that the Word in alive and as relevant today as when written. Before we can SHOW we must first ask: To whom would God have me SHOW CHRIST? Pray now and ask God to give you the names of persons you can SHOW love to.
Foundational Principles 4) Being a witness is not an option. Witness is what we are before it is what we do! Luke 24:48 You are witness of these things. Just as the disciples were eye witnesses of the earthly ministry of Christ and experienced something they could tell, You and I have experienced the same empowerment those first disciples were given. The Spirit of God testifies through us what God has done in Christ and allows us to SHOW others.
Foundational Principles 5) We must get the salt out of the shaker. Matthew 5:13 You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt should lose its taste, how can it be made salty? ANSWER THE FOLLOWING. How many non-Christian relationships do you have? How close are you to them? How should we balance our time with Christian and non-Christian relationships?
Hallowed be Thy Name Matthew 6:9 Our Father who is in heaven, hallowed be Your name. John 17:6 I have revealed Your name to the men you gave Me from the world. We must show Him if we are to be effective in sharing Him.
Learn from the Master John 4 – Jesus shows the Samaritan woman the Living Water. John 8 – Jesus shows grace to the woman taken in adultery. Luke 19 – Jesus shows Zacchaeus a little tenderness.
How do you show people love? What do the stories we looked at have in common? How did Jesus behavior open a door for further conversation? Who demonstrated the Gospel to you? What recent event in your life was a demonstration of the Gospel?
