Join Me for a Gospel Fluency Crash Course

As a Christian, do you find it difficult to talk to others about Jesus? Is it possible this difficulty is because we're trying to speak a language we haven't actually spent time practicing?

On Tuesday, February 28 at 6:00 p.m. PST join me for a live crash course in gospel fluency on Facebook and Twitter. I'll be discussing how we can best become fluent in the gospel for the good of our neighbors and the glory of Jesus.

About Gospel Fluency

flu·en·cy / noun :the ability to speak a language easily and effectively

Even if they want to, many Christians find it hard to talk to others about Jesus. Is it possible this difficulty is because we’re trying to speak a language we haven’t actually spent time practicing? Is it possible we have neglected to understand for ourselves how the good news of Jesus impacts every facet of our own lives?

To become fluent in a new language, you must immerse yourself in it and commit to practicing it, over and over again. You must use it everyday until you actually start to think about life through it. Becoming fluent in the gospel happens the same way—after believing it, we have to intentionally rehearse it (to ourselves and to others) and immerse ourselves in its truths. Only then will we start to see how everything in our lives, from the mundane to the magnificent, is transformed by the hope of the gospel.

Challenging us to cultivate this counter-cultural mindset, Jeff Vanderstelt offers readers wise biblical insights, practical advice, and compelling stories aimed at encouraging and equipping Christians to speak the truths of Jesus into the everyday stuff of life.
