Showing the Way
Do you ever wonder why you don’t have more opportunities to engage in significant spiritual conversations? Maybe it's because you have forgotten to knock.
Early believers were unstoppable in their witness. They knew that the One who had all authority in heaven and on earth (Matthew 28:18) had commanded them to be His witnesses.
Bringing others to Jesus requires maturity, training and skill. Right? Not necessarily. Some of the most effective witnesses in the Bible had just met Jesus.
Natural sound barriers must be broken to move deeper into spiritual conversations that lead to Jesus. Paul experienced fears like ours, but he did not allow them to hinder him from communicating the gospel.
It wasn’t surprising that the man’s story amazed the people who knew him. After all, he was delivered from severe demonic oppression and a life of insanity. Anyone who knew him could see how much his life had changed.
What is the most important topic of conversation? Paul would say it is the gospel. The gospel’s essence may be summarized as simply the message of who Jesus is, what He has done and why.
Questions are powerful tools to explore spiritual experiences of people and to guide them to a fuller understanding of the gospel. No question gets to the heart of the issue more quickly than the one that Jesus asked Peter and the disciples: “Who do you say I am?”
A guide is someone who shows another the way on a journey. As we enter into the spiritual journey of others, we seek the privilege of showing them the way to Jesus. This implies a level of openness on their part and trust in us as a guide. An effective context to help others journey toward Jesus is to help them connect to a believing community. Often the guidance occurs within personal conversations. Our own spiritual journey can play a role in spurring interest, establishing trust and revealing gospel truth. But the gospel itself is the most powerful tool. The guide must understand gospel truth, growing in the ability to communicate it clearly and relevantly.
