I took several tracts and door hangers to jail service tonight. Afterwards, I stopped at a Walmart to pick up some items. I met today’s daily tract challenge by leaving a tract on a Valentine’s Day gift display. As I was leaving, I took my cart to the Elisha, who was working in the parking lot. I asked him if he were to die and stand before God, why would He let him into Heaven. He said that he was a 7 on a scale of 1 to 10 spiritually. He took the Camo Card.
I can usually get out at least 5 – 10 tracts easily on one trip to a store. Last night at a neighborhood Walmart, I gave out several May The Lord Be With You tracts. Wayne took one on the bread isle. He said that he was new to the area and looking for a church. Quadre, an employee, took one in the parking lot. I gave a Yolo tract to Jennifer, the cashier. A man who I saw in the store took one when I was returning my cart.
Most people will take a tract. If someone doesn’t take one, keep on going to the next one. I have a rule: for every reject, there are 50 more around the corner who will take one!
We don’t share our faith because we have to. We share our faith because we get to. It’s a privilege to share the gospel with others. As a matter fact, it’s our responsibility. I get joy spreading the Gospel and yes, sometimes we are rejected. God did not say that we would not face rejection or persecution. Jesus said ““Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness’ sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.”Matthew 5:10 Don’t be surprised when persecution happens. Rejoice, even though our hearts break because of that lost soul. 1 John 4:17 says “Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world.”
In the world’s eyes, we are foolish. God has given us this great commission to reach out to them, but he has given us the graced for when they don’t want what we have. So many need the Lord. Let’s keep on reaching out till He calls us home. Be encouraged! He hears our prayers and will give us souls for His kingdom!
