Why is it vital to understand that Jesus is in control of ALL things in heaven and on earth before we attempt to share the Gospel with those who don’t yet know him? Given this fact, how should we respond when some reject the Gospel and refuse to accept Jesus’ loving offer of forgiveness?

The main command in the “Great Commission” is to “make desciples”. What is involved in this process? How does making disciples differ from making converts? Is it possible to “make disciples” quickly? Why or why not?

If you were to truly view yourself as a “missionary” or “ambassador” of Jesus in the Pensacola area how would that change your life? How would it impact your work life? Your home life? Your recreational life? Your checkbook? Your interactions with your neighbors? Ask the Lord to make you a more effective ambassador for Him!
