What is In The Cool Zone? Part 3

In Part 1 and Part 2 of our introduction to In The Cool Zone we presented what it means to be in the cool zone. We practice techniques that let us think in stressful or uncomfortable situations. This will minimize unwanted reactions and sets us up to use our mind. Now, let us talk about what our goals are once we get there.

Three Complementary Goals

  1. Think like Jesus thinks.
  2. Deliver the Gospel.
  3. Teach what you have learned.
This work does not come naturally or without effort. However, I want each of you to know that you can do these things. Many may already be sharing the Gospel and teaching. Let's continue to build on the foundation we have and increase our effectiveness for the Kingdom of God.

We encourage you to do so even more.

Think Like Jesus Thinks

Don't copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God's will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect. - Rom 12:2 NLT


Deliver the Gospel

And then he told them, "Go into all the world and preach the Good News to everyone." - Mar 16:15 NLT

Teach What You Have Learned

A servant of the Lord must not quarrel but must be kind to everyone, be able to teach, and be patient with difficult people. Gently instruct those who oppose the truth. Perhaps God will change those people's hearts, and they will learn the truth. Then they will come to their senses and escape from the devil's trap. For they have been held captive by him to do whatever he wants. - 2 Tim 2:24-26 NLT

Think Like Jesus Thinks

Take Action!

What is your Gospel elevator pitch (a quick, brief presentation)?

Are you a mentor in Christ?
Here's one strategy... When you study, study like you have to teach it. Take notes. Organize them. Make it fun!
