Some of my reflections on why sharing the gospel is so difficult today:
The combination of globalism and connectivity via media makes this generation much more perplexed, even immobilized to know how or whether to share the gospel. Sharing the gospel seems more scandalous than ever. We are more proximate to other religions and have a growing difficulty in believing we are right and everyone else is wrong.
In I Kings 9:4 God says how Solomon will be blessed if he follows his father David’s example. You mean, the adulterer and murderer? Yes, says God. He had integrity. Huh?! The clue seems to be in I Kings 9, verses 6 and 9 in that David was never an idolater. Job makes much of not being an idolater as well (see Job 6:10). That carries lots of weight with God!
I use 3×5 cards for Scripture memory, 4×6 for general notes, and 5×8 for putting together books and courses. I have a growing stack of 5×8 for the “Stepping into Controversy” course I am presently teaching. Index cards are a thing of beauty. Analog is great!
