Required reading for leadership
April 27, 2016
My Lutheran seminary training did very little to help me understand the dynamics of how the Holy Spirit works in peoples' lives in the journey into faith. "I Once Was Lost" has helped fill that gap and has changed the way we look at evangelism and how we encourage people to reach out to neighbors, co-workers and even family members. Our entire board of elders (Church Council), staff and leadership have now walked through this book together. It is a fairly easy read and great for discussion.
For so many of us, sharing our faith is a frustrating exercise. We have the best of intentions, but end up being jerks for Jesus. We avoid non-Christians like the plague for a while. Then some one or some thing convinces us that we really ought to evangelize. So we gear up with self-righteous, fire and brimstone fear of hell for the next round. And we wonder why Christians have a reputation for being judgmental, close-minded and angry. Why would anyone else want to be a Christian when we make it look so uncomfortable? If this sounds familiar to you, you are going to love "I Once Was Lost". Get ready to be amazed at how easy sharing Jesus can be. It's a freeing, wonderful book full of insights and practical applications. Not a how-to book on evangelism. More like a how-come what we have been doing hasn't been working. And biblical, helpful ways to see the whole process of coming to Jesus differently than you ever have before. Emphasizing relationship over religion and loving over lecturing; this book will give you the confidence to share what you love about Jesus and let Him handle the rest. A very special book that every Christian ought to read.
