Topic: Evangelism Verse: John 11
Go to those who are DEAD
Remove the STONE
Call people from DEATH to LIFE
Unwrap the GRAVE CLOTHES
Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die; 26 and whoever lives by believing in me will never die. Do you believe this?”
Four questions for all of us today:
1) To whom is God calling you to go to today?
Ask God to give you at least 3 names— people who need to become alive in Jesus Christ.
2) What stone is God calling you to roll away?
What are the barriers keeping the “dead” from you, or you from the “dead?”
3) Call people to life in Jesus
Don’t call people to a religion, but a relationship with Jesus. Jesus is the only one who gives new life.
4) What are the grave clothes you have been called to unwrap?
Here is a thought though— it is very hard to unwrap someone else’s grave clothes when you are wearing them yourself.
