What is a great way to start a spiritual conversation on Monday morning?

All Christians should be looking for ways to engage in spiritual conversation with others with hopes to talk about the gospel.  Yet, many struggle to see when those doors are open or how to try and open them.  Here is one easy way to engage others in a possible spiritual conversation that I was taught many years ago and has proven quite effective when asked at the right time.  The only caveat is it has to get asked on Monday.  The question is…

“What was the sermon about yesterday?”

You would be amazed at some of the responses I have gotten over the years.  Responses have varied from a joyful response of a good, fruitful sermon heard by a grocery clerk to a tearful confession of skipping church from a bank teller.  There is the common reaction of the awkward silence of shock from someone blindsided by the question.  Of course, if you try to engage this way, you will eventually be asked the same question back and you’d better be ready to respond.  Pastors, you have no excuse not to remember the sermon you just preached the day before.

So then, if you read this post in time, try it today.  You may experience a very encouraging conversation with a fellow believer in Christ.  You may remind a straying church member of their disobedience of forsaking the assembly (Heb. 10:25).  Who knows, God by His grace may just open a chance to share the gospel with someone as you recount the faithful Word preached to you or by you the previous Lord’s Day.

    a good idea, but what if you’re in a part of the world where you’re 95% sure the person you’re talking to didn’t listen to a sermon yesterday? would it seem a bit presumptuous?

      Good point. I think this works best in places like the USA and would be more difficult in places where there is not a strong evangelical presence, or at least a level of church culture to work from.

  2. What is spirituality? Spirituality are everything. spiritual sickness can be cure by spiritual healing by the help of The Word. thank you for make my comments posted.
