Memorize and ReflectMatthew 28:19-20 “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
Prayer DirectionTake time praying in some of these directions:
- Ask God to remind you of the events and people who led you into a relationship with Christ.
- Thank God for send those people and engineering those events to draw you into his Kingdom.
- Ask God to stretch your heart for people who don’t yet know Him and lead you into divine appointments that allow you to have transformative spiritual conversations.
“Live It!” ChallengeFocusing My Mission – Make a list of 3-5 people God is inviting you to invite to engage in spiritual conversations. Then, write down specific prayers for God to open their eyes and hearts to a relationship with Him. Remember that God has you in this location and this time to participate in the mission of inviting people to know, obey and trust him.
Small Group Discussion
If somebody were writing your biography and asked you friends and family what your mission is, what would they say?
Read: Matthew 28:19-20 What is the mission Jesus calls us to join Him on?
What are the key activities included in the mission?
Who modeled these activities well for you? Who showed you what is was to be a learner/ disciple?
Jesus calls his disciples to teach other people to obey his teachings. Is there a teaching of Jesus that you’ve stopped short of fully obeying? If so, what would it look like for you to move from knowing information to pursuing transformation?
Jesus includes baptism as a part of his disciple-making process. Have you been baptized as a profession of your faith? If so, what led to that decision? If not, what do you think about getting baptized?
Ananias, Philip, and Peter all encounter people who are very different from them. What steps are you taking to make sure your life is moving into spaces where people who don’t think or act like you live?
When Jesus sent his disciples out, he sent them out together. Who are 2-3 people or families that you consider partners in mission? What’s one missional risk you, as a group could take together this week?
Which “nations” or people groups has God given Shoreline access to that haven’t yet heard the powerful message of Jesus in a way they can understand?
