A new resource to help you share Jesus.
We have a brand new resource to speak of Jesus at this time: we’re encouraging sportspeople to Train 1-2-1, a brand new resource to use in line with government restrictions.
Pray for three sports mates to do Train 1-2-1 with
Stay in the lives of your mates by inviting them to train with you
Say something of Jesus as you Train 1-2-1
Will you take part in Train 1-2-1?
It’s simple - just:
-Invite one friend to go on a run, a ride or a walk.
-Ask them three questions about the identity, mission and call of Jesus.
An example of what you may want to say could be:
‘Hey Ben, I’m a part of an organisation called Christians in Sport. They're asking sports people three questions about what sportspeople make of Jesus. You up for that?
You can see the questions below and download them to your phone if you want.
*If appropriate (your friend doesn't know any of Jesus' claims) you could read them a specific claim of Jesus to discuss:
"I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full."
"I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me."
“I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die."
How you ask your friends and engage them in these conversations will vary from person to person. At some point, all of us will face a point of ‘pain’ as we ask our friends questions of faith - we call it ‘crossing the pain line.’ It’s tough but needs to be done if we are to have meaningful conversations with our sports friends.
Two things you could do:
-Let them know about it when you invite. As part of the invite you may want to ask a friend to do Train 1-2-1 and discuss some questions OR
-When you train, find the best moment to talk about the questions. It may be in the warm up or cool down or as you train.
-Join us to pray in our Online Prayer Gatherings. Register for them here.
