Life is so busy that we don’t even need to sin to find ourselves outside of the will of God for our lives. All we have to do is be distracted from what we are truly made to do. When this happens, we miss our purpose, not because we are doing something wrong, rather, we may be doing many things right. However, they’re just not the things God purposed for us to do.
Jesus was faced by many great things he could do. He even had many people with needs that begged him not to leave them, but he knew that God had called him to share the gospel far and wide. So rather than get distracted by the many good things he could be doing, he stayed focused on his God-given mission.
As believers in Jesus Christ what are we responsible to do?
Who are you responsible to preach the good news of Jesus Christ to?
What or who distract you (Busyness, Friends, Embarrassment, Insecurity, good things, the unknown, never discipled how, etc...) from preaching the good news of Jesus Christ? Why?
What are the potential consequences of distraction? (Think for you, for others, for the kingdom, for the church)
What are you going to do to remove that distraction and stay focused on the your purpose?
OBSERVE: Look at your friends and ask yourself if Jesus is their Lord
PRAY: Ask God to give you the wisdom and courage engage them with the gospel (Invite to event, talk about the Bible, etc...)
ASK: Invite them to rockyouth Christmas Party where the gospel will be clearly and simply shared.
