Many of us who do personal evangelism have found useful questions or statements to help continue or start a conversation that potentially leads to a conversation about the gospel.
For example, sometimes I have asked long distance truckers:
“What to you do to take care of your soul in all that travel?”
The quality and level of their response can encourage further conversation or quickly reveal that there is no interest in talking along those lines.
We all need to have a group of questions that we use to facilitate a discussion about faith.
While I believe it’s appropriate and a good practice to know a gospel presentation by heart, I think that asking good questions unlocks further avenues of conversations that leads to life change.
- There is a time for questions.
- There is a time for giving answers and the reason for the hope within us.
- There is a time for questions to ask when evangelizing.
When questions are raised in the right time, the search for answers can move a person forward in their journey to faith in giant leaps.
Questions help people come up with their own solutions for their own unique circumstances. If you learn to use questions, you can help people discover their spiritual thirst and grow towards Christ.
Let me ask you this?
What conversation starters have you used to help gauge a person’s interest in further spiritual conversation?
