How Listening Changes Lives
By Rick Warren

“Someone’s thoughts may be as deep as the ocean, but if you are smart, you will discover them.” Proverbs 20:5 (CEV)

We’ve been looking the last few days at the things that can give you confidence in sharing the hope you have in Jesus. Today’s confidence builder is this: You can help lead anyone to Jesus if you’ll just listen for the key to their heart.

What is the key to someone’s heart? It’s their hidden hurt or unmet need. 

We all have secrets in our lives, things we don’t want other people to know about. “Yes, all have sinned; all fall short of God’s glorious ideal” (Romans 3:23 TLB). But when you’re able to discern a person’s struggles by listening to their heart, you’ve just discovered how to lead them to Jesus. 

The Bible says, “Someone’s thoughts may be as deep as the ocean, but if you are smart, you will discover them” (Proverbs 20:5 CEV).

Keep in mind, there’s only one way to God the Father, and that is through Jesus Christ. Jesus said, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me” (John 14:6 NIV). But there are many reasons people come to Jesus. 

Some people come to Jesus for a miracle or to get a question answered. Some come to Jesus out of loneliness, guilt, or fear. Others are looking for purpose in life. Still others are in the middle of a relational or financial crisis. 

There are a thousand different reasons people are drawn to God. Stress, pain, and suffering always have a way of getting your attention. 

If you want to reach a particular person for the Lord, find the key to their heart by opening up a life-changing conversation with them.
