One of the main reasons we are hesitant to share the Gospel is FEAR. We fear many things and one of them is asking questions like…are you saved? if you died tonight? do you know the Lord? This is a setup for misunderstanding because different religious traditions use very different vocabulary to talk about this subject. Also, it puts the person on the defensive. They feel judged or inspected, why else would you ask me such a question? If you were asking them to give their opinion of who Jesus is or what they think the Bible teaches, you just might engage them in an ongoing conversation about the man Jesus or what the Bible teaches about him. That is what we need, an ongoing, natural conversation about Jesus from Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. Let the Holy Spirit do the heavy lifting in the conversation.
