Key Points from this episode:

  • Ask yourself the question, what can we offer that they aren’t already getting?
  • Be willing to do what you’ve not done before, as Steven learned to be relational in order to make disciples.
  • In order to make disciples, Steven said he needed a discipling relationship himself.
  • 1600 people have come to the Lord without a budget or a building!
  • People feel 1) Invisible – they long to be known, 2) Isolated- they long to be accepted 3) Incomplete- they long to be loved.
    These are human needs that the Gospel speaks to and that God fills.
  • Work hard to express worth and value to those who are skeptics.  Find the image of God and what God is doing in them and acknowledge it.
  • People don’t care about the message you have to share until they trust the messenger.
  • Don’t rush to “close the deal” when sharing the good news!  Celebrate the micro miracles God is doing and go with God’s pace of working in someone’s life.
  • Our dinner tables are key!  Have God conversations about the big questions of life
  • Shared brokenness connects us with others. Be willing to be vulnerable about your own brokenness.
  • Jesus is concerned with heart transformation, not behavior modification.
