First Euless
June 24, 2018 - Relate and Engage
It's easy to feel like what God wants from us is complex, but Jesus message was surprisingly simple. At First Euless, we believe in a simple strategy: Relate, Engage, Adopt, and Lead. Join Pastor John Meador as we look at each of these elements and how we can make them a part of our everyday lives.

Luke 10:30-37
Jesus replied and said, “A man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell among robbers, and they stripped him and beat him, and went away leaving him half dead. And by chance a priest was going down on that road, and when he saw him, he passed by on the other side. Likewise a Levite also, when he came to the place and saw him, passed by on the other side. But a Samaritan, who was on a journey, came upon him; and when he saw him, he felt compassion, and came to him and bandaged up his wounds, pouring oil and wine on them; and he put him on his own beast, and brought him to an inn and took care of him. On the next day he took out two denarii and gave them to the innkeeper and said, ‘Take care of him; and whatever more you spend, when I return I will repay you.’ Which of these three do you think proved to be a neighbor to the man who fell into the robbers’ hands?” And he said, “The one who showed mercy toward him.” Then Jesus said to him, “Go and do the same.”
Relate well to God and man, engage the lost, adopt new believers, and multiply leaders.
RELATE well with God and others.
We are to love others COMPASSIONATELY, SELFLESSLY and INCLUSIVELY.
ENGAGE others with the Gospel.
First, look at the question.
Luke 10:29
But wishing to justify himself, he said to Jesus, “And who is my neighbor?”

“Neighbor” means any fellow man, especially the one nearby.
2nd, look at the bigger question.
Luke 10:36
Which of these three do you think proved to be a neighbor to the man who fell into the robbers’ hands?”
The call is to engage people with the gospel intentionally, not just incidentally, accidentally or circumstantially.
Acts 19:10
This took place for two years, so that all who lived in Asia heard the word of the Lord, both Jews and Greeks.
Colossians 4:5-6
Conduct yourselves with wisdom toward outsiders, making the most of the opportunity. Let your speech always be with grace, as though seasoned with salt, so that you will know how you should respond to each person.
