Once we understand Dying to Live (the concept that we must Die to Self to have New Life in Christ) we can’t help but see the world differently. If we know that laying down one’s life in Christ is necessary to have life to the fullest, then our hearts go out to those who try to preserve their lives and miss out on this new life. And so we are motivated to share the good news about Jesus with them. But how? And what if they respond in an unfavorable way? In this lesson we see that God calls us to play an active part in sharing this good news with others, but we are not responsible for how those individuals decide to respond to this news. Regardless of the results, there is a real joy in playing our part in sharing the good news about Jesus.
