You Will Be My Witnesses

living lives of faith
you will be my witnesses
the call from Jesus

Summary:

In his last meeting with his disciples, Jesus doesn’t invite them to make witness to him — instead, he informs them that they “will be” his witnesses. What sort of witness will our lives make? How will we continue the ministry they began?

Some discussion Questions:
1.  Where does Jesus anticipate that his followers will witness to the good news he has shared with them?
2. In John 17:1-11, what does Jesus ask God to do for his followers (and us) as they represent him in the world?
3. In 1st Peter 4, what encouragement does Peter offer to those who witness to Jesus in difficult times?
