Thrive Pathway Activity 13

Have Spiritual Conversation with Others

Definitions:

God has called believers to be witnesses for Christ. As you witness, you will realize that some people are not yet willing to respond to the gospel. Before they are ready to hear the gospel and give their lives to Jesus, they need to begin thinking about spiritual things and develop a hunger and thirst for God. To help make that happen, the Bible teaches that God wants you to faithfully share the gospel wherever you are. As you go about witnessing, it is helpful to be prepared to share in the most effective way. For example, being pushy or harsh or screaming "Repent" on the street corner might not be the best ways to share.  A more positive approach would be to ask questions as you witness. Just like salt makes a person thirsty for water, followers of Jesus should help people become thirsty for God, and this often happens by asking them deep, thoughtful questions. Try asking them what they believe about Heaven, death, sin, God, and the meaning of life, and then just let them talk. 

Scripture:

Matthew 5:13
“You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot.”

Details:

Pray that God gives you names of people and opportunities to have spiritual conversations with them. Allow these conversations to begin simply. Don’t force them to go longer than needed.Determine a non-threatening, opening question that will help begin a conversation. Some suggested questions:

  • What do you think about God?
  • What do you think God thinks about you?
  • How is God working in your life?
  • What are the things you pray about?

Attend Alpha group to see how others carry on spiritual conversations.
