Jesus Asked Questions


Why Jesus asked questions and why we should also ask questions. a 1-minute devotion. #BibleLoveNotes #Bible

"In apologetics... you can give a lot of answers that have nothing to do with the questions" ~ Ravi Zacharias

Zacharias, an expert apologist, encourages Christians to imitate Jesus, Who often asked questions before giving answers.

When the rich young ruler asked “Good Teacher, what must I do to inherit eternal life?” most of us would have gone through a prepared speech ending in the sinner's prayer.

But Christ said, “Why do you call me good?” and He probed deeper to discover the man's intent.

Although it's not an evangelism verse, James 1:19-20 is a great strategy: 

"You must all be quick to listen, slow to speak, and slow to get angry."

When we share Christ: 
  • We should take time to listen and ask questions.
  • We should think before we speak.
  • We shouldn't take disagreements personally.
It's easy to use formulas when sharing Christ, but we do more good by discovering what people are really saying and answering the right questions.

Story of rich young ruler: Mark 10:17-27

  1. This is so true! Such a good verse to apply in so many situations. Making sure that we understand a person's questions before we try to answer. Also, asking questions often reveals the motives of their own hearts.
