I’ve had several conversations recently with various people from this blog about how best to reach Jahar with the gospel, and it’s become evident to me that we really need to discuss our strategies that we might—with the help of the Holy Spirit—come up with the most effective strategy.
It’s very easy for us to fall into one of two extremes, both of which are likely fatal to our mission.
- We are so focused on not being too pushy and on not moving too fast that we never really get to the heart of the matter—the gospel of Jesus Christ—with Jahar because we are afraid we will harden his heart forever.
- We so fervently desire to see Jahar come to faith in Christ that we throw aside all caution and boldly preach the gospel to him in a way that only comes across as forceful and arrogant, which is counterproductive.
The key in reaching Jahar is the power of the Holy Spirit rather than our being perfect in our methods, but that doesn’t mean that a discussion of our methods would not be beneficial.
What do you think is the best strategy for us to take in reaching Jahar, in regards to how we go about writing to him?
