Re: Verse reading – Luke 20:1-8, 20-26 (day two)
If you have ever discipled a young believer about evangelism it is likely they asked a question like “what if someone asks me a question and I don’t know the answer?” This is a very earnest question that most of us have faced when sharing our faith at some point even to a contentious audience.  As always we take our cue from Jesus.  He knew what was happening and how almost any answer would trap him, but rather than play to their scheme he listened.  He listened to the heart of those who questioned him.  They were not seeking truth, they were seeking justification for their plot.  Thanks be to God for the gift of discernment in these situations.  We should continue to ask the Holy Spirit to reveal the heart of the matter.  Logic, doctrine, dogma, mean nothing if he who asks doesn’t have ears to hear.  As we continue to share our faith pray that the Lord will reveal the words that will truly penetrate, and then listen.
