Has anyone ever tried to explain something to you and by the time they're done, you forgot what you asked? It reminds me of when we first got computers at work. Although I'm far from being a computer tech, I was the one at work most comfortable with how to do things on the computer. I went around and answered co-workers questions. You have to take in to account, this was about 1998. One of my coworkers had post-it notes on every cabinet above his computer with every how-to that I told him. One day he said 'okay, I know how to put in the web address but how do I get it to go there?' I told him and he wrote down on a post-it note, 'press enter.'
Simplify. People get lost in the details. I think people often shy away from witnessing because of all the details. Isn't John 3;16 really the simplified version of it all? Knowledge of more is good but understanding and accepting this verse is key. '' For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.''
