Sarah Shares The Gospel

Last night, Sarah got to meet one-on-one with one of the teenage girls that she disciples in a bible study. Sarah has been a leader with this small group for about 3 years now and it has been a roller coaster ride to say the least. She asked the girl a bunch of questions about what she believes, and then Sarah answered any questions that the girl had. Sarah found that this girl who had been faithfully coming to the bible study for a long time knew very little of the basic narrative of the bible, and she had a lot of mixed up ideas from our culture that were not based at all in Scriptural content. Of course, we all are like that (especially in high school). Overall, people today know very little about what the bible actually teaches (I say that as if I have actual stats, but I’m sure it’s true. How post-modern!) Anyway, Sarah’s responses to this girl’s many questions were in effect a presentation of the gospel. It’s hard not to share the gospel when people ask things about forgiveness, sin, the fall, and the resurrection of the dead.
I’m so proud of my wife and her faithfulness to speak the truth in love. Not only that, but all the hours and hours of building relationship that lead up to a conversation that was filled with trust and respect.
Pray for this girl to grow in her understanding of the gospel.

    The fact that the kids trust her and feel safe enough to ask questions is really encouraging. It’s crazy that God brings kids even though-at times-you wonder “why are you coming over again?” Seems to me, it’s for moments like that-growth. I will pray that little girl learns deep truths about Jesus during her time there and that she would pass that on to other kids with questions.
