4Ws for Week 3, 16-22 January 2012

WELCOME (10 minutes)
(If you have first-time guests, begin with a round of introductions and warmly welcome the new visitors.) HEAR ME ONCE Here is a way to encourage Bible familiarity and prepare the teens for the night's Scripture study. It's a backward type of Sword Drill. It's called HEAR ME ONCE. The rule: you will call out the location only once and then the first pair of teens to find the passage - either one - gets a point. Pair off the teens. Call out the passage in this order: verse, chapter, book. For example, you will yell: "16" then "3" then "John" "GO!" This, of course is John 3:16. Note that you do not use the words "verse" or "chapter" or "book." You have already explained the order at the beginning of the game. Also remember, even if a teen asks, you do not repeat any of the information - this adds a challenge of memory to the game. Also, if a team gets it correct, they do not answer the next verse question. This way, there are more chances for everyone. the first team to get four points wins.

WORSHIP (10 minutes)
You may use the following suggested worship songs: 1. Take It All 2. From the Inside Out

WORD (45 minutes)
Sermon Title: Workers are Badly Needed by Pastor Rudy Fernandez on January 15, 2012 Scripture Reading: Matthew 9:35-38 New King James Version (NKJV) (Have the whole cell read the passages together.) 35 Then Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every sickness and every disease among the people. 36 But when He saw the multitudes, He was moved with compassion for them, because they were weary and scattered, like sheep having no shepherd. 37 Then He said to His disciples, The harvest truly is plentiful, but the laborers are few. 38 Therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest.

Discussion Questions: Q1. How do most people view crowds of people? Q2. How does Jesus view them? (Ans. He saw their distress and inability to help themselves. They were like sheep without a shepherd. The sheeps have one worse problem. They often find themselves in situations where they will roll over and cannot erect themselves on their own. Jesus had compassion on them.)
Q3. What are the problems that keep us from compassion? y Firstly, there is the self-centered perspective. We do not look at the people from their needs but from our own. Once we start thinking of their lives and needs, then we can start loving them. y Secondly, we do not believe that people really are as bad off as they are. Do you really believe they are perishing? Can you send money to victims of the tsunami but not help those in spiritual need around you? They are justly descending into the pit of everlasting fire for their sin and independent spirit, but we just stand at the bus stop without a thought of their need.
