This year we are engaging with God’s command to reach the lost with the gospel (Mark 16:15) by focusing on the aspect of our church Mission Statement that emphasizes our devotion to the world around us.
 
To do so effectively, we’ve established a motto for the year (“3,2,1…Go!”) which embodies three components–each designed to help us be more intentional about living out our care and concern for the lost people in our lives.
 
We hope that every person at Faith Community Church prayerfully considers how they can participate in 3,2,1…Go! as a tangible expression of obeying God’s call for Christians to share the good news of Jesus Christ with those who need to hear.
 
 
3. PRAY FOR THREE PEOPLE WHO NEED JESUS.
Who do you know that has not entrusted their life to Jesus and become a born-again member of God’s family–receiving forgiveness of sin and eternal salvation? You can probably come up with a pretty sizable list. Of those, will you choose three people (or families) and commit to praying regularly and fervently for them? Pray that they would come to know Jesus as their Lord and Savior and experience a life changing relationship with God.
 
 

2. PLACE YOURSELF IN THE LIVES OF TWO PEOPLE YOU WANT TO REACH; OR INVITE THEM INTO YOUR COMMUNITY.

Can you think of people who live in your neighborhood, work at your business, go to your gym, frequent your favorite coffee shop, attend your school, or otherwise are a part of your sphere of life and influence but are not Christians?

Consider ways to cross paths, swap contact info, “friend on Facebook,” or in some way establish a report. The goal is to eventually and intentionally place yourself in the lives of two people or families who might be positively impacted by a relationship with you–hopefully being left with an greater receptiveness toward Christianity.

This might involve babysitting for a family free of charge, volunteering to drive someone to the airport, or being willing to help someone with a move. Maybe you could invite them to a church outreach event or to a dinner your FAITH Group hosts. The options are limitless.

 
 
1. PRESENT THE GOSPEL (IN THE POWER OF THE HOLY SPIRIT) WITH AT LEAST ONE PERSON.
As you spend the year in prayer for those who need Jesus and make efforts to place yourself in the lives of the lost–you will likely find yourself cultivating opportunities to share the good news. What a glorious privilege it is to trust the Holy Spirit and boldly share Jesus with someone.
 
“…How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!” Romans 10:15
