“The Interview” – what’s next?

Hey TD,

What a tremendous time we had in our small groups.  Many of you came to some real realizations and feel a real responsibility to continue to engage with your friends and love them in His name.  But how?  What’s next?

I gave you an idea on Friday of how to proceed next.  This coming Friday, we will expand and go into more detail about the next step and give you a broader picture of the exciting direction we’re heading in the months ahead.

But in order to experience godly success at this, you’re going to have to prepare yourself well.  As Coach Wooden used to remind, failing to prepare is preparing to fail.

You may be asking, “I want to honor the Lord and honor my friends and do this justice.  How can I prepare myself well for the next steps?”

1.  Know this cold –  Living on God’s Terms (Arthur) – mp3 – both in content and intent.  It’s your foundation.

2.  Please be praying through this process – for you, your friends, and for God

3.  Come to TD this Friday.  In addition to giving you direction for your next step, Jenny will be teaching on “The Lordship of Christ,” a vital topic to know well in order to be able to be effective in serving your friends well in the months to come.

If you haven’t yet done your interview or your formal write-up, please do so this week!  It is important that you do so for the next step.  Please ask your small group leader if you need help or want more details.

See you on Friday! – Arthur





Living on God’s Terms – Interview assignment!

Living on God’s Terms (Arthur) – mp3

Hey TD,

I realize that the assignment I gave you (to interview a person who holds to another world view than you) was too rushed.  So, I’ve put the “due date” as our TD meeting on Friday, January 9, 2015.  When you do your interview, make sure you take notes during the interview.  We would like you to write a out a summary of your interview prior to your meeting that night.

Please feel free to ask your TD counselors or interns for help, tips, prayer, and guidance along the way.  They have lots to offer and can help you.

It is important that you do this assignment, as it will get you off the sidelines and get you into the game.  When you are in the game, your faith and dependence on God increase dramatically.

Living on God’s Terms

Above is the mp3 of Friday’s critical teaching.  I would advise you to listen to it (or re-listen) before your interview, just so you really know the ins and outs of coming to salvation more thoroughly and precisely, both for yourself and for your friends.  It’s some of my clearest teaching on the subject and will definitely help you.
