Looking at John 14 and Acts 17, Jordan shares about how Paul, guided by the Holy Spirit, presented the gospel to the people of Athens. In the pluralistic society of Athens, Paul took the time to observe the people and their search for meaning in the array of ideas and philosophies they regularly discussed. Paul encouraged them that their search, if they'll take it farther, is bringing them to Jesus who has been present with them all along through the Spirit. Likewise, we live in a pluralistic world and have an opportunity to observe our community, ask questions, learn what is needed, and discern how to bring the gospel. John 14:15-21; Acts 17:16-31.
