Quick! Name something you do not know how to do. Find a book in the book store? Find something in a store? Fix that thing that is broken on your car? Find something in town? Most of us believe that the Lord allows needs in a person’s life to expose a need for the gospel. However, have you ever thought that maybe that need in your life is a chance to share the gospel? Most of us do not share because we don’t talk to people. Your need is an excuse to ask someone for help. This should generate a conversation which is always that foundation for evangelism.
QUICK: what is a need you have that could serve as a conversation starter?
