Sermon Notes

Our 2019 Emphasis: BE THE LIGHTHOUSE!

  • We Reach Out With Hope Revealed Through Christ-Like Action (verse 15)
    • In Christ, we have hope amidst a dark, hurting, and hopeless world
    • We must live our hope (Be the Lighthouse)
  • Four Forms of Reaching Out: Invite, Invest, Converse, Convince
    • “Evangelism” scares most of us, conjuring up images of memorized scripts and confrontation. That isn’t what evangelism should look like in 2019
    • There’s at least one form of evangelism suited for every person, including you: Invite, Invest, Converse, Convince
  • Have No Fear: The Rewards of Reaching out
    • It’s natural to be afraid, but don’t be (verses 13, 14) – Christ is with us, so let’s fill our hearts with His holiness (verse 15)
    • God blesses our faithfulness in reaching out (verses 16-17)
