I've done this same thing in personal conversations more than I'd like to admit.
You know what I mean--you want to share Christ, so you start your little spiel without pausing to discern the needs, backgrounds and questions of your listener.
Good preaching with translation involves pausing to listen, and good personal witnessing involves the same.
In fact, in personal conversations, it's often best to start with questions instead of answers, to know where our listener is spiritually.
"Then Philip ran up to the chariot and heard the man reading Isaiah the prophet. 'Do you understand what you are reading?' Philip asked. 'How can I,' he said, 'unless someone explains it to me?' So he invited Philip to come up and sit with him."
God prepares hearts. When we pause, listen and ask good questions, we're often invited to share.
