“Empowered to reach the world” Lesson #4
“The gift of Faith”

Intro:  Where is the most dangerous place you have ever been to share the Gospel and evangelize?


  1. James 1:15, Rom 6:23 In all countries, all cultures, in all parts of the world the problem of sin is the same! The Bible tells us that the consequence of sin is death.
    1. Mark 16:15, 1 Cor 12:8-11 Every one of us as Christians are called to the same purpose, to win as many people to Jesus as we possibly can! God will equip us with the gifts of the Holy Spirit so that we can truly be effective in reaching the world!
      1. 1 Cor 12:9 The next gift of the Holy Spirit that we will discuss in this current series “Empowered to reach the world” is the gift of Faith.
      2. Hebews 11:1  Faith is absolute and complete trust in God. It is us making the decision to trust and believe that God will fulfill His promises, that God will come through for us even when we do not understand, and that everything God says in his Word is true.
    2. Hebrews 11:6 The Bible tells us that we must have faith in God, in His Word, and in His promises in order toplease God. Faith is absolutely essential in our Christian walk.
  2. 2 Cor 5:7, Romans 1:17 This is the general faith that all of us as Christians need to have in order to stand firm as Christians and accomplish the ministries God has called us to lead.
    1. 1 Cor 12:9 Then there is the gift of Faith which is when the Holy Spirit will anoint us with a supernatural faith for a specific situation.
      1. Acts 3:6-7 An example of the gift of Faith is when Peter and John believed God and boldly prayed for the crippled beggar, and God healed him.
      2. Mathew 17:20 John 14:12 Jesus said that if we have faith in God that we can move mountains, and that we can do even more than He did here on earth. We need to trust and follow God and allow the Holy Spirit to work in us and increase our faith!
    2. Mathew 21:22 In order for us to remain strong as Christians and truly be effective in reaching the world, we must have a general faith in God, in His Word, and in His promises and we need to step out and operate in the Holy Spirits gift of Faith! #Reachtheworld!



1. Who can share a testimony of a time when you chose to have faith in God when you faced a difficult and challenging time? In what ways did God come through for you?

2. Why do you feel it is necessary for us to have faith in order to please God? What are some of the ways we can demonstrate our faith in God?

3. Can you share a time when the Holy Spirit anointed you and you operated in the supernatural gift of faith for a specific situation? What happened?

4. Are you facing a difficult situation right now in your life and you feel you need more faith? If so what situation are you facing? Are you ready to trust God and surrender your situation to Him?

End: Pray for those who want to be filled with the Holy Spirit gift of faith so they can be more effective in reaching the world, pray for any who need to accept Christ, then take requests.
