Carrying on a Gospel Conversation

Carrying on a Gospel Conversation

Carrying on a conversation

What we say to someone is far less significant to them than how we make that person feel. We want to direct and carry each conversation with the motivation of love and the desire to connect with them more. We don’t aim to sugar coat anything or water down the scriptures but desire ultimately to always share the truth in love.

  1. Ask questions – Ask about their own journey/story, There view of Jesus, “would you say your far away or close to God, Why?” Listen for follow up questions that allow them to share and stay engaged in the conversation.
  2. Listen well – It is easy to formulate an argument while the other person is talking, instead listen to them well and then respond.  
  3. Learn why they believe what they believe – If you can understand why they believe what they believe, it will reveal the core belief system they have it will help you connect them and help you see what part of your personal testimony or scriptures you might want to lead them too.
  4. Share your story – Often your personal testimony will open the door to introduce scripture.  This one of the most powerful things you can do while carrying on Gospel Conversation
  5. Point them to scripture – It is good to have specific scriptures prepared to share, but many times a gospel conversation is organic because you’re asking questions and learning their story and its hard to prepare for something you don’t know is coming.  Therefore, be open to sharing a scripture you didn’t expect, maybe a verse will come out from memory that is relevant.  Listen for the Holy Spirit to speak through you, using the Bible. 

EPH 4:15Rather, speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in every way into him who is the head, into Christ

TAKE THE CITY outreaches have been so special to me. I love being able to see the hand of GOD move in peoples lives as they are healed and families restored. GOD cares about every detail of our lives and he reaches the places that only HE can only heal! Its been an honor to see all the teams go out and share the LOVE that GOD has instilled and filled the teams with, and let it pour out to all the community. Having physical needs met also assures all we encounter, the faithfulness of our Father. So many times I have cried seeing what GOD is doing… Being able to see people brought into the KINGDOM and freedom Spirit, Soul, Mind and Body. Is the greatest treasure in my life. I am grateful for TAKE THE CITY allowing me to have front seat and seeing GOD move in peoples lives!
