(March/April 2003, Vol. 30, No. 2, Worldwide Challenge)
As believers, we sometimes get scared at the thought of sharing the gospel. Many complain that they just don't know how to bring up the subject. Next time you are talking with friends, try some of these questions:
Where are you on your spiritual journey?
If you could have a talk with God about anything, what would you ask Him?
What do you find most and least appealing about Christianity?
Who is Jesus Christ?
If someone asked you how to become a Christian, what would you say?
If you were to die today, where do you think you would go?
These questions can help any Christian get into a discussion about Jesus. Remember to keep asking questions, and really listen to the answers. Focus your conversation on Christ, and stay anchored to the basics of the faith.
Once the spiritual conversation gets started, trust the Holy Spirit to change the person's life.
