THE NOISE WE MAKE
Scripture Text: John 19:38-42 Joseph of Arimathea and Nicodemus were secret followers of Jesus. They were afraid to make this allegiance known because of their positions in the Jewish community. Joseph was a leader and honored member of the Jewish high council. Nicodemus, also a member of the high council, had come to Jesus by night (John 3:1) and later tried to defend him before the other religious leaders (7:50-52). Yet they risked their reputations to provide for Jesus’ burial.
Life Application Study Bible

Reflection question:  How do others perceive your faith? o Are you a secret believer? o Do you hide your faith from your friends and fellow workers? It’s time to come out of our shells – our comfort zones – and make a noise for Jesus. Stop being “secret agent” Christians. We must not be ashamed of the gospel. * How can we “make a noise” for Jesus? - Through our words AND actions.  Matthew 5:16 In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven.

-

It’s not enough to just talk about God, we must WALK OUR TALK.  1 John 3:18 Dear children, let us not love with words or tongue but with ACTIONS and in TRUTH.

Practical Life Application:  Pray for God’s forgiveness if we became “secret agent” Christians.  Discuss ways on how each one (or the whole group) will “walk their talk” this week. (Evangelism project)
