Jerry Wiles on Conversations that Matter Most

Orality Training in Central America

How many conversations do most of us have on a daily basis?  How many of those conversations can become divine appointments?  How can ordinary conversations be turned into meaningful, significant and life changing conversations?  These are important questions to ask if we are interested in having positive impact on the lives of people within our spheres of influence.

Tools for Conversations

Sometimes modern technology and our digital devices can be a hindrance to substantive conversations.  On the other hand, especially during this global pandemic, our phones, iPads, laptops and other devices can be useful tools for having meaningful conversations.  It was encouraging to have a phone conversation recently with a man I led to the Lord 45 years ago.  He has also introduced many to Jesus and discipled them on their spiritual journey.  Being mindful and purposeful can make all the difference in conversations that are seemingly routine, and those that can determine the eternal destiny of individuals.

Power of Modern Media

During the present pandemic many of us are recognizing, even more so, the power of modern media and technological resources.  It’s been a blessing for many years to produce a short feature radio broadcast.  It is remarkable how God can use a 60 second message to impact people’s lives.  https://www.khcb.org/wp/   Many have been inspired to become more active in sharing the Gospel and experiencing others coming to faith in Christ. A short story, an example or a Scripture portion can be used by the Holy Spirit to touch hearts and change lives.

Not everyone has a platform to reach people by television or radio.  However, increasing numbers of people around the world have access to phones, computers, laptops, iPads and other devices to reach out with conversations that can have impact for the Kingdom.  We have heard many reports of how the Lord has used, and is using, these modern media resources to spark disciple making and church planting movements among unreached and unengaged people groups.
