Jesus has left us many hidden nuggets of truth hiding in plain sight and it is easy to just skip over them without noticing. For instance, I have not noticed before in Luke 10:25-26, Jesus giving us yet another example of witnessing.
“And behold, a certain lawyer stood up and tested Him, saying, ‘Teacher, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?’ He said to him, ‘What is written in the law? What is your reading of it?'”
Jesus did not just answer his question, but asked him what his interpretation of it was. I believe Jesus did this so He would know where the man was in his spiritual walk and how to lead him into the truth.
Father, thank you for all the wonderful lessons you have provided through Jesus’ example. Help us when presented with the opportunity to witness, to remember all of the ways Jesus was able to reach people. In His name we pray, amen.
