Spiritual Conversation Starters–Reply with Your Ideas! by Darin Stevens

One of the most important and basic skills of personal evangelism is the ability to turn normal conversations into spiritual ones–ones that lead to talking about a person’s background, beliefs and experiences with God.  Some people are naturally better at this than others, but it is a skill that can be developed over time as well.  We thought we would start sharing a few of our spiritual conversation starters over the next few weeks and ask you to reply with yours!

  • On a scale of 1 to 10, how close would you say you are to God right now?
  • If God is real, what would you want Him to help you with right now?
  • Were you taught any kind of religious perspective as you grew up?
  • What do you think is the biggest need of the people around you?
  • Why do you think so many people are still interested in Jesus 2000 years later?

Your turn!  What spiritual conversation starters could you suggest? Comment on this post »
