What opportunities has God placed in your life to build relationships with those who don’t yet know Christ? Can you say that you are “making the most” of these opportunities? If not, what are some changes that you can make that may enable you
to connect more effectively with unbelievers?

In what ways can we use our homes or apartments to create a space where believers and unbelievers can build relationships with one another? What normal activities of your life would be a natural place to build relationships unbelievers (eg -celebrations, sports, hobbies, home projects etc.)?

What common objections to Christianity have you run into as you have talked with others? Have you wrestled through these objections in your own mind? Do you feel prepared to respond to these objections when they arise in conversation?

I Peter 3:15 & 16 Should living in a culture that rejects absolute truth impact how we share the Gospel? According to Peter, what role should our behavior play in our evangelistic efforts (2:12,15; 3:1, 15)? Do you think asking questions and listening is more important now than it was in a previous generation? Why or why not?
