Want to know one of the lies that keeps me from sharing the Gospel? "They don't want to hear it" or "They've already heard it." It's just so easy to believe. I hope I'm not the only one. And here's the crazy part... I KNOW it's not true. At the campus my husband do ministry on as well as our sister ministries in Durango and Grand Junction we do a ton of spiritual interest surveys asking questions like, "Would you like to get together with someone to talk about Jesus?" and "How interested are you in spiritual things?" And guess what? The vast majority are interested. And this is not the Bible belt mind you. This is places like super duper liberal Durango! People are created with a built in desire to have relationship with their Creator. And as followers of Jesus, we are the ones capable of telling them how to have that relationship.
So if you're like me and that lie is a tempting one, just do one simple thing to expose it. Ask them. Ask them if they are interested in knowing God personally or something along those lines.
