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

I have been serving in some way with Take the city since October 2013. I spent a lot of time on the prayer team in the beginning and encountered God’s heart for the city in a life changing way. When the teams came back and shared testimonies, it was always fun to see that our prayers coincided with some of their testimonies in special ways. More recently I have had the privilege of leading a team to a nursing home where I used to be an employee. I used to pray over the facility every day, and it was such a miracle to see an old friend who lives there give his life to Jesus on one of our outreaches a year later. God sure has a way of answering prayers. And Take the City is an answer to so many prayers that have gone up here.
