In this portion of the discussion one student brings up questions about feelings of failure after unsuccessful attempts at evangelism. Dillon addresses the concerns by sharing two important things to remember:

  1. Learn from it.
  2. Don’t give up.

Dillon continues by pointing out that many people will learn a great deal about our faith before we ever speak a single word about it. They see (or don’t see) Jesus through our actions. When he said that, I was like ‘whoa…’

If you could never say another word about your faith, how would people know that you are a Christian? What kinds of things do (or more accurately… should) other people see you doing?
