Running on Empty: Spiritual Disciplines - "Outreach"

This week we continue in our sermon series “Running on Empty” as we look at the importance of spiritual disciplines in the lives of believers. This Sunday our focus will be on the spiritual discipline of “outreach.” Sharing our faith with others may not seem like a spiritual discipline at first, but it is a vital part of our overall growth as believers. When we share our faith, we strengthen our faith. 

Often the thought of sharing Christ can be quite intimidating, but it really shouldn’t be as it is not our job to do the convincing! In John 9 we see the amazing story of a blind man with no training and no experience at all being chosen and used by God to bring the gospel to the “religious elite.” So often we underestimate what God can do through us when our eyes have been opened!

John 9:24-27
“So for the second time they called the man who had been blind and said to him, “Give glory to God. We know that this man is a sinner.” He answered, “Whether he is a sinner I do not know. One thing I do know, that though I was blind, now I see.” They said to him, “What did he do to you? How did he open your eyes? He answered them, “I have told you already, and you would not listen. Why do you want to hear it again? Do you also want to become his disciples?”
