"I am the vine; you are the branches." (John 15:5)

The Power of Practice

As leaders, sooner or later (or both), we will face difficult questions. Sometimes they are points of theology, other times they are about personal struggles. How well we answer will often be determined by how prepared we are. Being prepared will help us to make sure that we don’t say the wrong thing because we don’t know what to say at the moment. Even better, being prepared helps us to be sure we cover the important points.

Have you thought about what you will say when someone asks: “Is baptism REALLY necessary?” or “What’s the deal with the Holy Spirit and why is everyone so afraid to talk about it?”.

Teachable moments are hard to come by, so if we want to make the most of our opportunities, we should take the time and be prepared to  answer those tough questions. If we’re not sure, there are lots of people to ask and tons of resources available. Are there questions that you’re not sure how to answer? Ask them now and be ready so that when God puts someone in your path, you’ll know what you’re going to say!
