I had one of my regular readers contact me on Facebook and ask if I would consider doing a Question & Answer post. So, this is that post. If any of you out there has a question that you’d like to ask me, I promise to give you the best answer I can. You can send your question to me in one of two ways. One, you can leave the question as a reply to this post. Two, you can go to the Disciples Road blog Facebook page and leave the question there as a private message. Either way, I’ll read the question and at some point devote a blog post to the answer.
This won’t be my first rodeo in regards to doing questions and answers. I served as the pastor of Disciples Road Church for over eight years, and every Sunday morning I incorporated a Question & Answer time into the worship service. I used to tell those folks, “Preachers sometimes get accused of answering questions that no one is asking, so now I’m giving you a chance to ask any questions that I haven’t been answering.” At first there was no shortage of questions, and most of them had basic Bible answers. After a few years, though, the questions stopped flowing so easily and the ones that did get asked were deeper and harder to answer.
I’m even open to answering questions of a personal nature, but on those I’ll reserve the right to take a pass if I so choose. I guess the old saying applies here: “The only dumb question is the one that you don’t ask.” Please understand that this isn’t some sneaky ploy to get new material for the blog. I already have some new posts in mind to write, which means that if I don’t receive any questions it won’t be the end of the world. It’s just that I’ve been praying about that reader’s request and feel like God wants me to pursue it. And that’s what I’m doing.
Lastly, there isn’t a statute of limitations on this offer. If you don’t have a question right now, but one crops up in your life at any time, feel free to either respond to this post or leave me a message on Facebook. I will read the question. Even when this specific post gets several months or several years old, I’ll still receive immediate notification when any new comment comes in under it. That means that your question won’t get lost in the blog’s backwater. It will get read, and I will get you an answer. So, in closing, let me say that I look forward to hearing from you. Remember, you’ll never know if you don’t ask, and this is your golden opportunity to ask.
