5/6/2017 Tom about 60
A quick comment about Chicago’s crazy weather on the way into the grocery store led to sharing the gospel as the conversation continued inside the store 15 minutes later. How does that work? How can we make the transition from a natural conversation to a spiritual one?
The man I made the comment to, Tom, was unusually chatty, and once inside the store our conversation naturally progressed from one topic to another. But it didn’t lead to the Gospel, and I don’t believe in trying to manipulate a conversation according to a hidden agenda. It’s better to just ask for a complete change of subject: “Hey, I have a crazy question for you. This is a totally different subject but I ask random people and I get a variety of responses.”
“Sure, what is it?”
“What do you think happens after we die?”
Tom was very interested in talking about it, and this second half of our conversation didn’t go off on multiple tangents like the first half, because I had specifically asked this separate and specific question.
Want to have a Gospel conversation, but don’t know how to get it started? Just ask!
