Evangelism 2015 Lesson 3

Relational Evangelism


Intro: When you are married, How many children would you like to have and why?


  1. Matt 28:18-20 God has called us as Christians to evangelize, when we know Christ we have the responsibility to reach out and share Christ with others.
    1. Acts 1:8, Rom 10:14 We are called to evangelize those who are around us in our every day lives, as well as those who are on the other side of the world.
      1. Heb 3:12-13 One of the ways we can have a great impact in evangelizing locally is through sharing Christ with people we know.
      2. 1 Peter 3:15-16 Every one of us has unsaved family members, we should take time to reach out to those in our family who are unsaved or backslidden.
    2. Matt 5:13-16 Many of us see people every day in our schools, our work, or in our neighborhoods who don’t know Christ.
  2. 1 Cor 3:6-8, Matt 10:19-20 God will use us at times to plant seeds in peoples lives, and at other times he will use us to lead people to Christ.
    1. Eph 6:18-20 We need to look for opportunities to share Christ with people we know, and pray that God will prepare their hearts to receive.
      1. Matt 10:32-34 Many Christians don’t reach out to family, or close friends out of fear that they won’t want to listen to them because of the relationship.
      2. Rom 1:16 We need to face any fears or nervousness we may feel in reaching out to people we know well, trusting that God will show us what to say.
    2. Matt 5:14-16 God wants us to be a light to all those who are around us, Every one in our lives should know about Christ because of us.


  1. Do you feel that family members, or people you are close to are more or less likely to listen to you when you share Christ with them? and why?
  2. What are some of the fears that keep Christians from sharing Christ with friends or family members who are unsaved or backslidden?
  3. Who has a testimony of a time when you led a family member or friend to Christ?
  4. Who do you feel the Lord leading you to share Christ with in your family, or in your every day life ? What is your plan to share Christ with them?


End: Pray for opportunities to share Christ with friends or family members who are unsaved or backslidden, then take requests.
