Any time we present the gospel we kind of have this expectation that the person will commit their life to Christ and if they don't, then we obviously failed. We leave no room for the Holy Spirit to invade someone's life. We want to see the results immediately.
I think that makes God feel like some guy who's doing tricks. We say the magic words, and then BOOM, the person gets saved. I'd rather take that conversation and build on it while I share life with somebody. To me, that seems like the better way to make disciples, to really care about them. The other way seems more like all I care about is myself and getting another tick mark on my salvation wall. JM
