Relationships Lesson #7

  “ Relationships with the unsaved “

Intro:  What is your favorite holiday of the year and why?


  1. Mark 16:15, Matt 6:33 In order for us to have a strong walk with God as well as be as effective as possible in reaching the world, we must put God first in all of our relationships.
    1. 1 Cor 15:33 The Bible tells us that bad company will corrupt good character, so it is extremely important that we are very careful in our relationships.
      1. Hosea 4:6 One of the main relationships that we have in our lives that many Christians are unsure exactly how to handle are the relationships with the unsaved.
      2. Gal 5:7-8  Although it is extremely important that we evangelize and win as many people to Christ as we can, the unsaved are not to be our closest friends.
    2. 1 Cor 15:11 Many Christian youth and young adults are pulled away from God due to the influence of unsaved friends, dating relationships, and other close relationships.
  2. 2 Cor 6:14, 2 Cor 6:17 The Bible tells us that we are to separate ourselves from the sinful and wicked influences that are all around us.
    1. Prov 8:13 We as Christians are called to honor God with our lifestyles and in the standards that we live by.
      1. 1 Peter 3:15 The time we need to spend with the unsaved is to evangelize them. We need to directly share the Gospel with the unsaved, and offer to pray them through the sinners prayer. We then need to invite them to our church and cell groups.
      2. Eph 4:30, Acts 5:29 It is essential that we choose to please God rather than please people, and that we avoid grieving the Holy Spirit by allowing ourselves to be worn down by the sin, compromise, and negative influences that are all around us.
    2. Rom 10:13-15, Rom 12:9 We need to see the unsaved around us as our mission field, those we are called to reach with the Gospel, not as our best friends. Our closest friends need to be those who are on fire for God and who can help encourage us to #Reachtheworld.


  1. Why do you think many Christian youth and young adults have a very difficult time ending the wrong relationships in their lives that are pulling them away from God?
  2. What are some of the many negative results that can happen in our lives when we allow the unsaved to become our closest friends?
  3. Why is it so important that the time we spend with the unsaved is to evangelize them, and that we only allow people who are on fire for God to be our closest friends?
  4. Are there any wrong relationships in your life that are pulling you away from God that you need to end? Are there any unsaved people you know that God is calling you to evangelize?

End: Pray for any who need to end a wrong relationship, also pray for those who are trying to  evangelize unsaved people that are in their lives, then take requests.
