For many Christians, talking about Jesus with someone outside the faith is a daunting task. Mark 16 commands us to share our faith. "Go into the world. Go everywhere and announce the Message of God's good news to one and all. Whoever believes and is baptized is saved; whoever refuses to believe is damned." Mark 16:16
Here's a few ways on how to strike up a conversation about Jesus with anyone.
Listen well - This sounds easy enough, but the reality is that very few of us listen well. We get hung up on what they say rather than finding out what they deeply believe.
Create Space - Creating safe space is often the essence of counseling. As Americans, we tend to be afraid of conversational space. As soon as there is a pause in the conversation, we try to fill it. Let that space be. It sometimes is holy space.
