For there is no difference between Jew and Gentile—the same Lord is Lord of all and richly blesses all who call on him, for, “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? And how can anyone preach unless they are sent? As it is written: “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!” Romans 10:12-15
When was the last time you had a conversation about Christ with someone?
As a general rule of thumb, most men talk about three things: work, family, and hobbies. Almost all men have something to discuss in one of those three categories. There is a measure of safety knowing the awkward silence won’t rear its ugly head if you’re armed with a few conversation starters. Faith, however, is often blacklisted and rarely discussed. This is an area that takes lots of courage to step into. All men have an opinion, but it is the uncovering of the opinion and the resulting conversation that keeps this conversation at bay. How does a guy talk have a faith discussion?
It begins with understanding that Jesus commissioned all those who followed Him to tell others about Him. This activity is for a disciple, not only those who may be in vocational ministry. Think about what topics you discuss the most. They are most likely the activities you are most engaged in. Spend time getting to know and experience God through Jesus His Son. Then muster up the courage to talk about Christ with someone you come across. Try starting the conversation by asking where they go to church.
