Facebook analogy

Step 2 of the lesson, “What Does Jesus’ Call Mean for Me?” urges Christians to provide opportunities for others to hear and respond to Jesus’ call. To accomplish this Christians must be willing to reach out to those around us including people different from us.

Perhaps a way to approach teaching this step is to use the concept of social networking. Ask the class who has a Facebook page? Ask them to say how many friends they have. Ask if anyone has ever invited someone else to be a friend on Facebook? Ask them to say how Facebook makes it easy to invite someone else to be a friend. Ask if anyone has ever suggested a potential friend to someone else. Ask if anyone has rejected a friend request from someone else? Ask why?

Just as Facebook makes the opportunity to become friends easy, Christians need to make opportunities to meet and become friends with Jesus easy.
