Come and See

Sermon Notes:


  1. There is an individual and a community aspect to the church.
  2. We as a community are expressions of Jesus around the world.
  3. Jesus is glorified and people are saved when His body functions as it should.
  4. Be like Philip.
  5. Come and see is the easiest form of evangelism.



Questions for further thought or discussion:

  1. Discuss the various terms Peter uses to describe Christians in 1 Peter 2:9-10  .  How do you see yourself in each of the roles?
  2. Do you think the world sees more of the body (organism) of Jesus’ followers or more of the organization of Jesus’ followers?  What is the reason for your opinion?
  3. How have you been most effective in your evangelism?
  4. How do you measure success in life?  What is the best kind of “inheritance” to leave behind?




1 Peter 2:9-10  

But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light. 10 Once you were not a people, but now you are God’s people; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.
