“In your hearts revere Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect…” 1 Peter 3:15
Recently, one of our Trailblazers shared that in her sales experience she was trained with the mantra to have “two exposers per day.” As I mulled over that, I began to wonder what that would look like if we looked for a similar ratio in our faith life…tithed of course: “Two exposures per week.”
I think too often we get overwhelmed with the idea that we have to convince people of our faith, and become anxious about starting faith conversations. We are worried that we may deemed “Religious Freaks.” And so we allow our worries to stop us short.
However, what would it look like to have two faith exposures per week?
And in fact, they can come from three different levels:
1) Immersion: Inviting someone to share a meal or hobby you love. Asking them their “story” and what is important to them.
2) Connecting: Ask them, “What can I pray for you?” Share with them “This sermon/podcast/article made me think of you.” or Being prepared to give account of your hope inspite of the challenges you face.
3) Sharpening: Challenging them to ask “Where have you seen God at work this week?” and confess “Where do you need God’s help?”
It’s a big goal to grow into. One that we can challenge ourselves overtime.
