Great Questions Are Windows Into the Soul – PART I

One of the greatest challenges for Christians is how to converse with other people about God. How can we take “nice” conversations to a deeper level that touches the other person’s soul, as well as our own, and provide an opportunity to share the love and truth of Christ with them? Realizing that a true conversation is an interchange between two or more people, this series will explore how go deeper by posing  questions. But any question should be followed by listening – really listening –  and responding accordingly. We may only use a few of these questions in one setting, but they should helpful as we seek to converse and witness to others.   And always remember – everyone has a story and needs the Lord.
