Leading into Repentance and Faith Ministry Tips

Tip #1 Keep the First Key About Jesus

Reflection Questions:

-Do you remember a time when you responded to grace and opened your heart to Jesus in a new way?

-Was there a time when you needed to come to a deeper level of trust in Jesus? Or is there something you need to trust Jesus more deeply today?

Tip #2 Stay Focused on Heart Conversion

Reflection Questions:

-How has Jesus invited you to repent and believe?

-According to Romans 2, what leads us to repentance?

Tip #3 Proclamation and Response are Both Essential

Reflection Questions:

-What is something that you have expressed with your lips that then came alive in your heart?

-Why might it be important to let the Holy Spirit lead you when you are leading someone through repentance and faith?

Tip #4 Learn What to Say

Reflection Questions:

-Take a moment to write out a brief prayer of repentance and faith using the words sorry, please and thank you. Share with someone else what you have written, and practice leading them through the prayer. Have them do the same with you.
