Many of us probably have friends, family, coworkers and neighbors who don’t yet know the life-changing love found in a relationship with Jesus. They’re intelligent, thoughtful and caring people. You may have a heart to reach out…but are not quite sure what to say? They may have questions about God, life and the Bible that seem too challenging or confusing to tackle in a quick conversation over text or in between meetings at work.
Those questions are also often rather personal. They’re ideas and thoughts written only in journals and on hearts. They sometimes are not even voiced because their reason for being asked reveals uncomfortable vulnerability.
EveryPerson.com is a website originally created by someone who had all kinds of questions about God. She moved from atheist to believer because a friend of her fielded her questions with not only kindness and patience but also intelligence and thought.
If you are a Christian, you are called to share the Good News with others. In fact, there are probably people in your life who God has placed around you for that purpose specifically. Some of those people might have questions that they are sharing. Others may remain silent. Either way, consider sharing EveryPerson.com as you engage in conversations.
“EveryPerson.com is a safe place to explore questions about who God is and what it might be like to know God.
“This site contains articles, real life video stories, Q & A’s, and gives you an opportunity to email a question you might have about God. We will email you a personal response to your question. Our desire is to help you see that God is offering you a personal relationship with himself, and how you can begin to know him today.”
As you share this resource, consider how you might follow up. Offer to read articles together and talk about how Jesus has changed your life. It’s OK not to have all the answers yourself, do don’t worry about being the expert. Be honest and vulnerable, letting them know that you have questions, too, but that ultimately placing your trust in Jesus is what gives you confidence when you don’t necessarily have all the answers. Explore together. God will most certainly challenge, encourage and grow your faith as you lean into Him and share His love.
