Did you ever notice that Jesus was a great conversation starter? He taught people in the course of everyday life about the kingdom of God, using terms and images they could relate to:
He spoke with farmers about seeds.
He talked with shepherds about animals.
He related to fishermen using fishing analogies.
He taught businesspeople about giving and increase.
Jesus wasn’t in a frenzied rush to get people to understand who He really was. He taught people about how to really live – in this life and the next!
And as they listened, dialogued, hung out with Him, and saw demonstrations of His power, Jesus started a spiritual awakening that continues growing across the globe today.
This week, I spend some time with my friends Tim and Jake to discuss ways we can “demystify evangelism” and discover the joys of creating life-changing conversations with others like Jesus showed us.
