Overview

Workplace Grace, formerly titled Going Public with Your Faith, flies in the face of almost everything you've ever heard about evangelism. It's written for Christians who don't think they have a gift for outreach but want their lives to impact people around them.

All over the world, people are searching for spiritual answers as never before. But you don't need to travel to a foreign mission field to find them. You spend hours every day in the most strategic place of impact in the world-your workplace.

Workplace Grace Offers a Biblical Model for Evangelism that respects the unique relationships you have with your coworkers, clients, and customers. It shows how to be authentic instead of artificial when sharing what you believe, even to the most skeptical person, and cultivate caring connections with those who have not yet come to know Jesus.

Six Sessions include:

1 Spiritual Economics

2 Called to the Workplace

3 Is Anybody Hungry?

4 Earning the Right to Be Heard

5 Keep It Simple: From Cultivating to Planting

First Chapter

session 1
SPIRITUAL ECONOMICS
Evangelism is not an event but a relational process, and God has gifted each of us to play a critical role in drawing men and women to himself.
QUESTIONS TO THINK ABOUT
1. When you hear the word evangelism, what thoughts, feelings, or personal experiences come to mind?
2. What is your definition of evangelism?
3. What do you think makes evangelism successful or unsuccessful?
4. What role do you believe the local church should play in evangelism? How effective is it in that role?
VIDEO OBSERVATIONS
We want our lives to count
God's distribution plan
The process of evangelism versus the event of conversion
Discovering God's job for us in the evangelism process
VIDEOHIGHLIGHTS
1. What did you think about when Bill and Walt mentioned at the beginning of the video that we shouldn't expect non-Christians to come to us, that Scripture teaches us to bring Christ to people?
2. As you watched the water cooler scenes, what did you learn about yourself and the way you go about the process of evangelism?
3. Walt Larimore made a clear distinction between the process of evangelism and the event of conversion when someone 'prays the prayer.' Why is this distinction important for us to understand?
4. Why are relationships such an important part of the evangelism process?
LARGE GROUP EXPLORATION
Evangelism: God's Distribution Method
Of all the methods the Creator of the universe could have used to spread the gospel throughout the world, he chose to use ordinary Christians from all walks of life---the kind of men and women we meet as we go about daily life. God didn't handpick superstars to take his message to the world. Instead, he chose you and me to have a vital role in drawing spiritually needy people to himself. But how does God want us to distribute his message? What exactly is our role and what does the process look like? Let's see what the Bible says.
1. How do we know God wants those of us who are his followers to share his message with the world around us? (Read Acts 1:1--8, particularly verse 8.)
2. Why is it so important for other people that we be witnesses of God's message of salvation? (See Revelation 20:11--15.)
3. What role does sharing our faith play in our spiritual health? (See Philemon 6.)
BE A WITNESS? OF COURSE YOU CAN!
The greatest privilege in the world---being part of someone's journey to Jesus---can begin with something as simple as having a cup of coffee with a colleague, listening compassionately when a customer shares why she has had a rough week, or doing something beyond the call of duty for a boss or employee who's under stress.
4. The Bible provides plenty of instruction in how we are to go about being the witnesses God wants us to be in our world. Let's consider a few key Scripture passages that will help us better understand our role as God's witnesses.
A. One day Jesus told a parable about a farmer sowing seed in different types of soil and later explained the parable to his disciples. It turns out that the parable was about evangelism---how people receive the message of his kingdom! Read Matthew 13:1--8, 18--23 and notice the emphasis Jesus places on the whole process of evangelism, not just an abundant harvest. What does Jesus' teaching reveal about people's responses to the 'seed' of his Word?
B. Just as Jesus did, the apostle Paul often used an agrarian model to illustrate his teaching about evangelism. What key points do we learn about our role in the evangelism process from Paul's instruction in 1 Corinthians 3:5--9?

    Good book

    I am so inspired by reading the sample, just have to het the whole book. The guilt of not being able to approach people I barely know and trying to win them to Christ is eliminated. The way to help others make a decision goes back to Biblical principles of getting to know a person, finding out where they are, going from there while letting the HS do the work. Can't wait to learn more.
