Embrace the Silence – Part 2

I didn’t intend to embrace the silence on my blog, but apparently it’s been about 5 weeks of silence on here.

Another time we should embrace silence is when we present the gospel.  Sometimes, I rush through the gospel and don’t give people enough time to digest what I have told them.  This goes for both one-on-one explanations and presentations to groups of people.  I’ve heard Greg Stier say several times that we need to lean in towards those awkward silences when sharing with people.  It is during those awkward silences that the Holy Spirit works to draw people to Christ.  When we rush through it, we can lose a great chance for God to work.  Embrace the silence and the tension when sharing the gospel and expect God to work!
