I couldn’t believe it…I must have been daydreaming…somebody pinch me…
I have added a new weapon in my evangelistic arsenal that people actually appreciate and an opening line that causes everyone to respond with slight embarrassment. The weapon? A pocket-sized Gospel of John.
The line? “I’ll bet it’s been awhile since you’ve read the Bible…”
I signed up with “The Pocket Testament League” a few weeks ago (www.pocketpower.org), and made a commitment to read a portion of God’s Word each day, carry it with me and share it with others. As I share the Gospel, it’s great to put it in someone’s hands afterward.
I’ll also say this to a person, “Here, let me give you a little something, it’s a Gospel of John and you can read about how Jesus died for your sins, was buried for three days and rose again.”
On Sunday in Murrieta, the effeminate Starbucks Barista said, “Thank-you.”
So did the McDonald’s counter guy in South Redondo, on $1.00 Chicken McNugget’s Tuesday.
As did the homeless guy on a bike at Veteran’s Park on Wednesday.
And Thursday, at the Redondo Beach Farmer’s Market, Raphael the olive oil guy was genuinely enthusiastic when getting his Good News!
