Conversation Starters: Tell Others

Posted by Karah

Use these discussion starters to help foster a spiritual conversation with your family.

THE BIBLE MEETS LIFE: Is it fair that someone would die and not go to heaven simply because they’ve never heard about Jesus and, therefore, never had the opportunity to receive Him? Although God can and will make Himself known however He chooses, taking the gospel to every nation is the critical call for every Christian.

Concept: Tell others


Luke 3:2-3,15-17; Mark 1:1-8; John 1:29

LIFE POINT: Jesus is the Son of God.

What did John say about Jesus?

What did John do for Jesus?

Who is someone you could tell about Jesus?

LIVE IT OUT: Remind your child that the best way for a person to learn about Jesus is to have someone who cares about him talk about Jesus. Think of family members who may not know about Jesus. Plan a way to say a good word about Jesus to a family member or draw a picture about Jesus that can be given as a gift.


Luke 1:1-25,57-80; 3:1-22; John 1:19-37; Matthew 3:13-17

LIFE POINT: Jesus is the only Savior.

Who did John say he was?

What did John tell the people to do?

What did John do for Jesus?

LIVE IT OUT: Talk with your child about ways to tell others about Jesus: words, actions, written messages. Choose one friend or family member who needs to hear about Jesus. Pray for that person. Talk about what your child can do this week to tell that person about Jesus.


Romans 1:16-25

THE POINT: All people are without excuse.

Why is it wrong to measure our idea of “fair” against God’s actions?

How important is it to share the gospel?

Have a conversation around this quote:

“Every Christian is either a missionary or an impostor.” 1 —Charles Spurgeon

LIVE IT OUT: Ask your student to choose something in creation that reveals God to him or her.

As you drive together, point out some things that remind you of how great God is.

Pray that your student will be able to share the gospel.
