He shared a story of his argument with his wife right before Bible study. It lead to a very awkward conversation of his wife blowing up and the exec pastor challenging him to take care of his family first. He came flying at him and then dropped to the ground in the fetal position and wept like he never had before.
Jesus had challenging conversations all the time.
Peter, do you love me? Then feed my sheep.
He did a reality show 6 weeks ago and brought a bunch of students together who all have different faiths and backgrounds that they found on craigslist. One of the girls asked the producer off camera, “If I become a Christian do I have to quit masturbating? Because I love to masturbate.” He replied, “Just believe in Him and He will help you figure all that stuff out.”
Wow…that is reality. Hard conversations. Real stuff.
He discovered the more he listened the more they were willing to listen to him.
Why are there less seniors than juniors and juniors than sophomores, etc? We are not having challenging conversations with them.
Do you know why students are deaf to us? Because we are deaf to them.
Matthew 10:19-20 – do not worry about what you will say…depend on God…He will speak for you.
