We talk with our friends about many topics but often struggle with finding a way to introduce our spiritual beliefs. Well here’s an idea that might help.
Find an informational web site about Christianity. As you read the articles, think about a friend or family member who might be willing to take a look at it and introduce them to the site. After a few days ask the natural follow up question – ‘So, what did you think?’
Just that simply, you just might find yourself in a discussion about spiritual issues, one God might use to move them toward Christ. If you should get stuck on a question they have, reach out for help. I’m glad to freely give as much advice as I have.
Here are some suggested sites you might try.
Learn About Jesus – A clear presentation of what accepting Christ means.
Exploring Christianity – Articles explaining basic Christian concepts and Christian perspectives on modern issues.
TheGoal.com – News and articles on sports with Christian information and testimonies by athletes.
Runaway World – A work of cultural apologetics by Michael Green.
Tips for Effective Spiritual Conversations
- Trust God for the outcome. You can start that process by praying and then keep on praying.
- Don’t think you have to know all the answers. The phrase, “I don’t know” shows honesty and humility; traits in a Christian quite refreshing to many who don’t know the Savior.
- Stay away from arguing or trying to prove your point. Remember it is the Spirit that brings people to a place where they will believe and trust.
- Focus on understanding. If you know they have understood what you are trying to communicate, you’ve done the job God wants.
