183: How to Transition to a Spiritual Conversation
It can seem like the scariest and most awkward thing to do in life and relationships: you’re having a nice conversation, and you feel it’s time to bring up Jesus or transition to spiritual things. Yikes!
This week on the Lifeschool Podcast, we discuss how to transition normal, everyday discussions to spiritual conversations—without it being weird.
We are too often compelled by guilt to transition to spiritual conversations. We are supposed to try and slip in a little “Jesus talk” or church stuff whenever we can… right? But most of the techniques we’ve been taught are just that–techniques. And they can feel like a sales pitch to others and ourselves!
In This Episode You’ll Learn:
- Why we are afraid to engage in spiritual conversations.
- The most common excuses we have and the lies behind them.
- How past “techniques” rarely, if ever, end up being beneficial.
- Why the gospel is NOT a set of facts about sin, hell, and our afterlife.
- Effective ways to transition to spiritual conversations that are actually Good News.
From this episode:
“If our understanding of the gospel and spiritual things is focused primarily on some yet-to-be-seen afterlife, it will probably always seem weird or irrelevant to talk about it.”
