For many of us, reaching out to our friends with the gospel is very difficult. It’s scary to consider what our friends might think of us or how our relationships might be impacted if we share our faith. And to be honest, many of us just don’t even know where to begin.
We want you to use Steak Night to impact your friends for Christ. We know reaching out to your friends can be difficult, but we urge you to use this night when we will eat great food, watch a short video, and engage in a spiritual conversation to impact your friends in at least 3 ways:
1) Use Steak Night to have a spiritual conversation with your friend.
- Maybe you have spiritual conversations with your friends all the time, maybe you never have them. Either way, Steak Night is an easy way to engage in deeper conversations with the friends you care about the most. We’ll lead you in the conversation. You don’t have to know how to begin or which questions to ask—just show up with your friend. Use this opportunity.
2) Use Steak Night to show your friend the love of Jesus.
- In John 13:34-35, Jesus says to his followers: “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”
- Even if your friend hates the video we watch and will not engage in conversation (which is unlikely), he or she will see Christ’s love by seeing how we love each other. Use this opportunity to get your friend around people who love Jesus.
3) Use Steak Night to invest in your own spiritual growth.
- Yes, your own growth will impact your friends. In Matthew 9:38, Jesus tells his disciples to pray for workers to labor for his kingdom, because the harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Jesus didn’t tell them to pray for more Steak Nights, because workers make the impact, not events.
- Whether it’s through the video, taking a scary step and inviting your friend, or the conversations at your table, you will grow in your faith during Steak Night.
- Will you make an investment in your own spiritual growth—and, as a result, the advancement of God’s Kingdom—by coming to Steak Night on November 13th?
