Why is it that people say, “Never discuss religion or politics?”
This is John Sorensen, President of Evangelism Explosion International. The obvious answer is because such conversations can cause conflict and it can be especially challenging to talk to people about spiritual topics. But as believers in Christ, Mark 16 verse 15 tells us to go into all the world and preach good news to all creation. The most generous, loving thing that we can do is to inquire with the people in our lives about their spiritual convictions. But how do you get started? There are several ways, but here is one question that I think works well. Ask your friend, “What gives you the most meaning in your life?” Or “In your day-to-day living what keeps you going?”
People appreciate such questions on a deep level and these questions could very well lead to you sharing your testimony or to a Gospel presentation. So be encouraged, be intentional and share life today. Visit ShareLife.today.
