During the Sermon this past Sunday, while talking about prayer and evangelism, I offered a quote from Pastor John Folmar. Afterward, I had several folks ask me to repeat the line so they could write it down. I understand, it’s a helpful and impactful line that has stuck with me after hearing it nearly 5 years ago. Pastor Folmar said:
Before you talk to your friend about God, talk to God about your friend.
The sermon was on Colossian 4:2-6. Although it was preached at a conference on evangelism and primarily directed to pastors, I still think it would be fruitful for you to listen. His main two points are:
Speak to God about men. (prayer)
Speak to men about God. (evangelize)
Take time to listen. I’m sure you will be encouraged, challenged, and equipped.
