Pray for Harvesters
- People may be anti-religion but they're still spiritually hungry
We are the Answer to our Prayer!
- We may be afraid to go. Jesus said he is sending out like sheep among wolves.
- There will be setbacks, but also wins. How can we see more wins?
Find People of Peace
- Evangelists want to tell everyone but most of us aren't evangelists
- People of peace are receptive to us
- Often (not always) rooted in relationships: home, work, community
People of Peace Like You
- vv.6, 8
- There is peace in the relationship
People of peace listen to you
- If they don't listen, is it because they're hard hearted or we're abrasive and foolish!?
- If it's them, Matthew 7.6: don't toss your pearls before pigs
A Person of Peace Serves You
Pray for Your People of Peace!
- Pray for them
- Invite them to read the Bible, an event, etc.
- Re-read the passage in a couple of different translations
- Retell the passage in your own words
- Is there anything you don’t understand?
- What do you see?
- What does this tell us about God?
- What does this tell us about people?
- WHO ARE YOUR PEOPLE OF PEACE?
- What is God saying to you?
- What are you going to do as a result?
- Who are you going to tell?
