  • Luke 19:10 – Jesus came to seek and save the lost.
  • To teach them the truth
    • We can’t make them obey it or even listen, but we must make the effort to teach.
    • We must plant the seed. It is God’s business to give the increase.
    • Luke 4:16-20 – Jesus taught publicly. Those that have the ability and assignment can do the same.
    • Matthew 18 – Jesus also taught privately.
    • Acts 5:42 – The apostles taught publicly and privately.
    • Acts 20:20,17 – Paul taught publicly and privately.
    • All can have part in public teaching even if they can’t teach themselves by inviting others to the study.
    • Even if we don’t see immediate results, we must keep on teaching!
  • To set the proper example
  • To what degree is each responsible?
