When you’ve been transformed by God’s love, you can’t help but want others to experience the same grace and freedom. But how do you share it without scaring them away or offending them? For most Christians, “evangelism” is an intimidating word that suggests handing out tracts to strangers or doing other awkward things.
But what if there was a more organic, more authentic way to share your faith with your friends, neighbors, and coworkers?
Today, we continue our new series called BLESS, which is based on a book of the same name by Pastor Dave Ferguson. Together, we are going to learn how to BLESS our community as we fulfill the mission God has given us. Listening is a form of love that we can use to bless our neighbors.
Listening is a form of love
* James 1:19 NLT
When the people in our lives feel unheard and unknown, it ultimately leaves them feeling unloved.
* Luke 18:40 NLT
* John 5:6 NLT
* Mark 6:30 NLT
* Acts 17:22-25 NLT
How do we listen?
1. We listen by not thinking about how we are going to respond
2. We listen by asking great questions
3. We listen by not making the conversation about us
