‘I will know that you are standing together with one spirit and one purpose, fighting together for the faith, which is the Good News.’ Philippians 1:27b (NLT)
‘We’ is more powerful than ‘me’.
There is power in partnership, and that’s never truer than when we’re working to tell the world about Jesus. Evangelism is always a team effort, even in those times when we think we’re working alone. The reality is, when we lead someone to Christ, the Holy Spirit has already been at work in that life, and other believers have also been influential, directly and indirectly. Paul once wrote, ‘I planted the seed, Apollos watered the plants but God made you grow’ 1 Corinthians 3:6 (Msg).
You don’t have to do this alone – God can use your group. He intends for us to work together side by side.
Question to consider
Which of your friends and family members can your group begin praying for?
Lord, help us as a group to pray for people who don’t know Jesus and prompt us to pray consistently for their salvation.
