“Curiosity and the gospel are not two things we usually associate with each other, and I think that might be part of our problem in the church. It’s at least indicative of why our churches often have a culture that doesn’t really reflect the gospel.”
So how does curiosity help create a gospel culture in the church?
I do my best to answer that question in this video I recorded for The Gospel Project, a Bible Study Curriculum designed to help people of any age understand the redemptive story line of Scripture. I start with what curiosity is and why it’s so significant in how we understand scripture and God. I then touch on curiosity in personal life and relationships, in how we interact with culture, in how we approach crossing cultures, in our spiritual lives, and in ministry.
