About this Episode

Why can sharing our faith feel so awkward? Oftentimes we wonder how to get started, and what to say. How Jesus engaged with Nicodemus in conversation has some answers for us.

Sermon Notes:
John 3:1-19
John 16:7-15
Galatians 5:25

Inviting people into spiritual conversations requires embracing the reality that you are born of the Spirit. To move beyond the awkwardness of actually engaging others spiritually, embrace this reality.
When you invite people into spiritual conversations, you are recognizing that they need to be born of God’s Spirit too!
