Everybody’s Watching & Listening


Witness - Come & See – Go & Tell

Everybody’s Watching & Listening

March 6,2022

Pastor Mike Rippy

About midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the other prisoners were listening to them. 28 But Paul shouted, “Don’t harm yourself! We are all here!” Acts 16: 25 & 28

✓ There are “prisoners” all around you, people who don’t know Jesus, who are listening & watching how you live YOUR life.

✓ If we want to be a Witness for Jesus, we can’t just Proclaim Jesus, our lives should be an Example of Jesus.

✓ Tomorrow morning is coming, and everybody is watching!


Be careful to live properly among your unbelieving neighbors. Then even if they accuse you of doing wrong, they will see your honorable behavior, and they will give honor to God when he judges the world. 1 Peter 2:12 (NLT)

“It’s not: How do we get them to come to us on Sunday? It’s: How do we go to them on Monday?” — Jon Acuff



How to Live When Everybody’s Watching

✓By living Well and living Right!


I beg you, as those whom I love, to live in this world as strangers and "temporary residents", to keep clear of the desires of your lower natures, for they are always at war with your souls. Your conduct among the surrounding peoples in your different countries

should always be good and right, so that although they may in the usual way slander you as evil doers yet when disasters come, they may glorify God when they see how well you conduct yourselves. 1 Peter 2:11-12 (Phillips NT)


Jesus was Jesus all week long, not just on Sunday.



✓By understanding they Watch us at Work.


Servants, obey your boss in everything. Obey all the time, even when they can’t see you. Don’t just pretend to work hard so that they will treat you well. No, you must serve your masters honestly because you respect the Lord. 23 In all the work you are given, do the best you can. Work as though you are working for the Lord, not any master.

Col. 3:22-23 (ERV)


✓By having a healthy Family

Honor Christ and put others first…So each husband should love his wife as much as he loves himself, and each wife should respect her husband. Ephesians 5:21, 33 (CEV)


✓By showing Grace when it’s Least Expected.

You have heard people say, "Love your neighbors and hate your enemies." But I tell you to love your enemies and pray for anyone who mistreats you. Then you will be acting like your Father in heaven. Matthew 5:43-45 (CEV)


On Sunday grace is expected. On Monday grace is a surprise.


We don’t have a Sunday Savior – We have an EVERYDAY EMMANUEL.


MY NEXT STEP:

◻ RECEIVE Salvation from Jesus today.

◻ PICK up “You’re Invited” cards today at Connection Corner.

◻ BE a Witness this week to someone and INVITE them to church when the Holy Spirit

prompts you.
