Learn to see others through God’s eyes.

In The One, by pastors Jim and Jen Cowart, readers will learn to respond to God’s great love for us by reaching out to the ones in our lives who are lost, not literally but spiritually—those who have not yet discovered the rich love God has for them. God sent his Son to earth on a rescue mission, “to seek and to save the lost” (Luke 19:10)—or as the parables in Luke 15 show us, to save “the one.” And Jesus has entrusted us, his disciples, to carry on this mission until his return.

The book and the corresponding study explore Luke 15 where Jesus tells stories about rejoicing when lost things are found—specifically, a lost sheep, a lost coin, and a lost child. This passage teaches us that we’re dearly loved and sought after by God, and that we are called to join in Jesus’ mission to seek and to save “the one” with intentionality, perseverance, and joy.

Topics include:

Who’s “the one”?
The Sheep
The Coin
The Boys

The Leader Guide contains everything needed to guide a group through the four-week study including session plans, activities, and discussion questions, as well as multiple format options. In addition, a free digital download includes information for incorporating The One as a church campaign, sermon starters, and more.
