Lee Strobel, author of the best-selling The Case for Christ, describes a couple of key considerations to keep in mind when sharing the gospel. Before Jesus spoke to His neighbors about their Heavenly Father, He would first lift them up in prayer. Therefore, prayer should be at the foundation of our efforts. Secondly, Jesus was always available for skeptics to ask tough questions about the faith. We should be equally open and welcoming to those who doubt.
