Discovering Spiritual Journeys
Have you ever had a medical check-up to see if you were healthy? It’s time to determine the health of your heart. But it’s not a physical you need; it’s a spiritual.
When engaging others in conversations about Christ, we need boldness. But where does that boldness come from? Is it an attitude we can generate ourselves?
Stop and think of a situation where you were an outsider. How did you feel? What was going through your head? The idea of being an outsider can be uncomfortable, so to think of people as outsiders feels harsh and uninviting.
There are people at the threshold of faith, ready to believe in Jesus if someone will simply explain how. Why do we fail to recognize this? It might be that we’ve gotten used to looking at people based on external appearances rather than internal realities.
“Where are you?” That was God’s first question to Adam and Eve when they turned away in sin. It is not that they were physically lost, though he and his wife were attempting to hide from God (Genesis 3:8). But God cannot be tricked.
The most common criticism of Jesus was also the truth. He was a “friend of sinners.” After all, they were the ones he came to save. Rather than withdrawing from those whose sin made him uncomfortable, Jesus spent time with them.
Of all the people who gave Jesus trouble during his time on earth, no group was harder on him than the teachers of the law. You may not have imagined this man to be as teachable and open as he was as he was to Jesus’s teaching about the Great Commandment.
An explorer is one who journeys into unknown territory to learn and understand. Spiritually we enter into people’s lives, or into deeper levels of their lives, to learn and understand their spiritual journey. We explore primarily through listening and asking questions, with genuine interest and concern. Listening enables the explorer to hear unmet needs and traces of the Spirit’s work in others’ lives. Questions help the explorer discover where others have been in their spiritual journey, where they are now and where they are going.
