Our Road Map, the Bible, has a lot to say about conversations. And from God’s perspective, it doesn’t seem as if a great conversationalist is the one who talks the most, knows the most, or has the best jokes.
As we looked at what it means to live as a peacemaker, we saw the importance of our words and heart attitudes. What if we consider a GREAT conversationalist someone who invites God’s reality into a conversation so that transformation can take place—as someone who invites others to find solutions to their own problems—as someone who listens both to God and to the person speaking? This is peacemaking at its best.
In this week’s study, we will practice having a conversation with God through a Chat with God. We’ll look at a scripture and listen to God’s perspective, asking Him to give us revelation and understanding.
Then, we’ll take our revelations to Where the Rubber Meets the Road. We’ll practice being a great conversationalist using a skill we learned.
Yes, it’s possible to learn to be a great conversationalist. In fact, we are wired for success with the Holy Spirit living in us. So c’mon. Let’s hit the road. There’s a highway of people hungry for a conversation that points them to their heavenly Father–the One who loves them perfectly.
