Sabbath: Evangelism and Witnessing as a Lifestyle
avatar

Read for This Week’s Study:

2 Cor. 3:2, 3Matt. 9:36–381 Cor. 9:20–22Mark 5:1–19John 17:11–19.

Memory Text:

“At Joppa there was a certain disciple named Tabitha, which is translated Dorcas. This woman was full of good works and charitable deeds which she did”(Acts 9:36, NKJV).

Key Thought:

Whether we acknowledge it or not, all believers preach a message by the example of their lives.

It has often been said that Christianity is not just an adherence to a set of beliefs; it is also a way of life, a lifestyle. After all, what we believe will, ultimately, impact the choices we make and the kind of lives we live.

It is also true that those who claim to be Christians are keenly observed by others who are looking to see if their lives match their professed beliefs. Even if we don’t intend it, those who watch us do learn from us. So, the important question is not, “Are we influencing other people and passing things on to them?” but rather, “How are we influencing other people, and what are we passing on to them?”

While we should always remember the importance of our unintentional influence on those around us, we must also intentionally plan to help people make a connection between faith and lifestyle. This week we will study how the Christian’s lifestyle can demonstrate the relevance of faith in everyday existence.

Study this week’s lesson to prepare for Sabbath, April 28.

  2. So touched by the fact that people are watching me to see if my lifestyle matches my profession/my call. I can't imagine the change that would happen if we all lived according to Gods will. The world would be turned upside down. Lord help us to achieve Christlike character.

  3. What would you think of a person selling some medicine that he professes to cure illness when he himself is visibly sick? Obviously you would think that that person is by no means truthful. The same applies with today's Christians, we cannot expect the world to understand us and pay attention to us when we tell them of how Christ's love can transform a person into a new, refined, right-doing being when we ourselves are not potraying those qualities in the way we are living our lives.

I am thankful that I shared it with one of my workmates, from starting of this month she is happy to attend our local church and learning new things she had never heard of ...... Thank you Jesus for giving me the strength to witness about your love.

    • Dear Litty,

  5. Evangelism and witnessing is only possible if we be consecrated and have the zeal to be reapers. We are too relaxed. We need revival and reformation. May we pray for the outpouring of the Holy Spirit.

  6. What a tragic irony if we who profess to be the remnant, called out of darkness into His marvelous light, are found to be caught in that favourite quirk of the Laodicean church, paying lip-sevice to the gospel, and deluding ourselves that we've got it! Oh yes, the need for the transforming power of the Holy Spirit, to revive, to reform, so that we can practice what we teach, has never been greater.
