The Bible has some interesting to say about religion: the pure and undefiled kind requires some obedience on our parts. James 1:27 and chapter 2 make clear that a faith without any outward evidence of God’s inner work is dead. Steve closes this series on Sharing Jesus by looking at some of the many ways we can share Jesus, and that includes food, hope, love, and compassion.
When it comes to God’s work, the bottom is a good place to start. In Matthew 10 and Hebrews 6, great emphasis is placed on the importance of the lowly, the needy, the helpless, and even the locked up. Jesus has a special love for those the world has forgotten—and he promises to reward those who serve such as these. Have you forgotten?
Why are we sometimes intimidated by the judgment of non-believers? Steve looks at the call to share truth that Jesus has given to everyone who follows Him. Beginning with Mark 16:15 and then continuing with examples from his father Lester Sumrall’s life, Steve challenges us to look beyond ourselves, our families, our churches, and to share Jesus’ love and desire to save the lost.
Welcome to a new Table Talk Series we’ve titled “Sharing Jesus.” Just what is our Heavenly Father’s business that we should be about? Even if the title tips you off, there are so many ways to approach this responsibility. Steve introduces the series with some practical tips as well as some references to Lester Sumrall’s life.
Would you like to be used by God? Take a look at what set apart some of God’s servants in the Bible, starting with Moses and Joshua who became useful leaders for a brand new nation. In Joshua 1:8, God gave Joshua critical advice for the path ahead: “This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you[a] shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.” Listen to Steve talk about how you to measure success in your life, and how to get it.
