Relationships in the Church Lesson: Hearing Cries For Help in the Church Part 2

We are continuing our study in the role we play in hearing cries for help.

This weeks Scripture:

(1 Peter 4:10-11 NLT) God has given gifts to each of you from his great variety of spiritual gifts. Manage them well so that God's generosity can flow through you. … Do it with all the strength and energy that God supplies. Then God will be given glory. 

What can you give?Ask God what you can do to bless others. Ask him how you can do it. Ask him to show you who to bless with the gifts, skills, talents he has given you. By giving in this way, we imitate our Lord and prove to be his disciples. (Matthew 25:31-40)

Other Key Scripture Text: James 1:19 19 My dear brothers and sisters, be quick to listen, slow to speak, and slow to get angry. The NIV says: My dear Brothers, take note of this, be quick to listen and slow to speak and slow to become angry

Jude 1:23-24 22 SHOW MERCY TO THOSE WHOSE FAITH IS WAVERING. 23 Rescue others by snatching THEM FROM THE FLAMES OF JUDGMENT. There are still others to whom you need to show mercy, but be careful that you aren't contaminated by their sins.

Key thought: According to John Savage Author of Building Church leaders --When interviewed - Ninety-five percent of inactive church members have can trace their falling away to an experience of an “anxiety-producing event”—something as simple as a snub, a lack of care when really needed it, a moral lapse by a church leader nobody reached out when they needed. (So often a cry for help that goes unanswered) -- 95% If we learn to hear and respond to people’s cries for help, we can usually prevent their dropping out. And we all are responsible for hearing cries for help.
