Did ya know that God likes to ask questions?

It’s not cuz he doesn’t already know the answer. Sure, wants us to use our heads.

Adam, "Where are you?"

Eve, "What is this you have done?" 3/9+13gen

“So Elijah, what are you doing here?” 19/9one.kings

“What is your life?” 4/14jam

“Who do you say I am?” 8/29mk

“Why do you call me good?” 10/18mk

“Do you think I came to bring peace?” 12:51lk

“What will profit a man..?” 16/26mat

"Friends, haven't you caught any fish?" 21/5jn.gwt

So why does God ask questions?  He likes acknowledgmentHe really wants to help people in ways that only He can.. so they'll know the Way. It's so He can save and bless those who are lost. 

Our mission is every Christian’s mission. Oh yes, “Go and make disciples” (Matthew 28:19, NIV).

I like to conversationally segway towards spiritual topics and ask people that I meet...  

Do you know for sure that you are going to be with God in Heaven?

If God were to ask you, “Why should I allow you entrance into My holy Heaven for all eternity?” What are you trusting in for salvation - what would you say to Him? Do you know? 

Do you feel that a certain amount of personal effort, say with good works, or religious deeds can earn you a place in Heaven?

Why is it that the Bible teaches no one can earn his or her way home into Heaven?

“For by grace are you saved through faith; and that not of yourselves:  it is the gift of God:  not of works, lest any man should boast” (Ephesians 2:8,9).

The Bible says, “..the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord” (Romans 6:23). 

What do you think about this verse: "In the beginning was the Word (Jesus).. and the Word (Jesus) was God. And the Word (Jesus) was made flesh, and dwelt among us..” (John 1:1,14).

Where and who is Jesus in relation to you? Do you believe it's true that the Bible tells us that He is the infinite sinless God-Man who hung on the cross for our sins, then died, and rose again?

Are people sinners in need of a Savior? Have you considered: “All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the Lord hath laid on Him (Jesus) the iniquity (sin) of us all” (Isaiah 53:6).

Would you be open to me praying with you..to “..Believe (trust) on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved..” (Acts 16:31).

What would prevent you from coming to Christ by faith right now
