Diagnostic Questions posted by John Sorensen on Oct 26, 2016
Jesus Christ used questions to diagnose people’s needs and spiritual condition, and it’s a good example for us to follow.
I’m John Sorensen, President of Evangelism Explosion International. In Matthew 9 verse 28, Jesus said to the two blind men, “Do you believe that I am able to do this?” In John 5 verse 6, He asks the lame man by the pool, “Do you want to get well?” Even Phillip launched his witness to the Ethiopian Eunuch in Acts 8 verse 30 with the question, “Do you understand what you are reading?” So here are two questions that you can use to determine a person’s spiritual condition. The first is “Do you know for sure that you’re going to be with God in Heaven one day?” The second is, “If God were to ask you why He should let you into His Heaven, what would you say?” These two questions enable us to discern and diagnose where people are spiritually and what they’re trusting in for eternal life. I hope this helps you as you share life today. Visit ShareLife.today for more free Gospel resources.
