How Do You Witness
Give it to God
How do you witness to people? Do you know just what to say? Are you one that has trouble talking to people? Not that you do not know what to say, but, you just cannot speak to strangers. Believe it or not I can ably speak to a thousand people at once from a stage or pulpit but it scares me terribly to speak one on one.
See, I know the plan of salvation and can take my Bible and start from wherever and show someone Jesus and how to be saved. But I have (had) a fear. That is being vulnerable in front of a single person. I would not be able to show emotion, and always have feared relationships. So I started witnessing by going with someone else that could break the ice. Then I started passing out Gospel tracts, silently at that. I would drop one in a public place or on a doorstep. Then I married a lady that knows no strangers. She can speak to anyone, anywhere, anytime! So our partnership is awesome, she can start by asking someone about how they feel about today's social issues and how God fits into them and then I can show them Jesus. Through her I am challenged to take the Gospel everywhere I go.
How is your prayer life to be a witness to Jesus? I used to pray," God lead someone to me that they hear Jesus today." But I have recently changed that prayer to," God show me someone that I cannot get away from until they know Jesus as the Risen Saviour and completely know the plan of salvation." That prayer was answered this past September when I was at work and led a man to Jesus in his driveway. My wife heard the first part of the conversation (cell in pocket with her waiting for me to resume talking to her) and she said the man is reaching out he needs saved go back. When I went back he accepted Christ right there in his driveway.
Since that day I have handed out over 2,000 tracts in driveways and doors while working. Just this week I have seen three people completely read those tracts before they went back inside the house.
So what does all this have to do with a website for fasting and prayer and revival? My friends the church (you and I as Christians) being obedient to God and sharing His Gospel IS revival. Some of these people may have never heard the Word before. It is up to you and I to get the Word of God out to the public. In the last year I have passed out over 10,000 tracts one at a time. I leave them in grocery stores, malls, restaurants, wherever I may be able to hand one off or drop one to be seen.
There is a free tract league for obtaining all the Gospel tracts you may need it is Fellowship tract league in Ohio. You may order tracts at... http://fellowshiptractleague.org all tracts are free of charge, order up to 1000 at a time. You also can order some good tracts at http://wayofthemaster.com they do charge for what you get but they are worth every penny.
So let me ask you, can you drop a Gospel tract? Do something BOLD for Jesus!
Find the joy of watching a person pick up that message and read it. Where one sows another will reap. My friends the fields are white and ready for harvest, what will you do?
