flu·en·cy / noun
:the ability to speak a language easily and effectively
Even if they want to, many Christians find it hard to talk to others about Jesus. Is it possible this difficulty is because we're trying to speak a language we haven't actually spent time practicing?
To become fluent in a new language, you must immerse yourself in it until you actually start to think about life through it. Becoming fluent in the gospel happens the same way—after believing it, we have to intentionally rehearse it (to ourselves and to others) and immerse ourselves in its truths. Only then will we start to see how everything in our lives, from the mundane to the magnificent, is transformed by the hope of the gospel.

I was raised in a pastor’s home by wonderful christian parents, spent most of my adult life in church, avid reader of spiritual literature, love scripture study, love the Lord, and yet...have never seen the gospel of Christ revealed through the lens of Jeff’s thoughts and writing in this book. Christ and the work of the Holy Spirit are hero of this gospel guide. Jeff so made what we in Christian-dom made complex, contrived and hard - wonderful, poignant, and simple...the way God intended. I may not be the first to coin this term, but as I read through this material 2nd and 3rd time, taking notes and reviewing scripture references - one word comes to mind: revelation-ary
