I went to the mall at lunch and had the chance to talk with a number of people. Got to follow-up from some that I had talked to before as well as meet some new people and start some new dialog with them. Of the many tracts I gave out, I was able to give a Get Out of Hell Free Card to one of the cashiers.

 

Day 150802: Not 1, Not 2, Not 3, Not 4 but 5 Get Out of Hell Free Cards

READ MORE

After church we had to run to Home Depot to pick up a few things. As I was walking in the door there were three employees standing there. They each got a Get Out of Hell Free card. When I checked out, I left a Get Out of Hell Free card on the keypad of the self checkout and then gave another one to the man overseeing the self check out line.

So I gave out not one, not two, not three, not four, but five Get Out of Hell Free cards – including one from the August mailing of the Bezeugen Tract Club.

 

Day 150727: In the stairwell

READ MORE

Jesus said “as you go” make disciples. I take that literally. Our seminar teaches people how to share the Gospel “as you go” to work, “as you go” to school, “as you go” to the store, etc. You get the idea.

At work I takes the stairs to the fifth floor. At least once a day. Depends if I have a chance to go for a walk during the day, or out to lunch. Sometimes during the day I’ll pass someone on the stairs going the other direction. And there are some others who will generally take the stairs. But, let’s say at 7AM when I typically arrive at the office, it is generally not crowded at all. As I approached the top flights of the stairs I could hear some voices.

When I reached the fifth floor, two workmen were there about to go up onto the roof and then onto the platform used – as they are painting the building. I said a quick hello to them and then said, “Are you doing today what you were created to do?” and I handed one of them the tract with that question on it. Since I only had brought one of those tracts, I handed the other a Get Out of Hell Free card. We had a brief conversation and I explained to them that no matter what job we have we can do it to the glory of God – once we know Jesus!

I had several other opportunities to share the Gospel. Craig and I met for lunch and witnessing at one of our local favorite fishing holes – Grapevine Mills Mall. When ordering lunch, I gave a tract to the cashier. I could not recall which tract I had given him last week. So I asked. He remembered it was the 2+2=, and then I let him pick from the supply I had in my hand.

The gentleman that I had given the Truth May Impact Your Opinion book, the week before had read part of the book. We had a very brief follow-up conversation with him before a customer came. So I’ll check back with him next week.

We had several other good one on one conversations.

Update: July 31
Going into the office this morning I found the two tracts shoved into the faucet handle of the fire system. I guess they must not have liked them.

There is a restaurant chain near our house called McAllisters Deli. They have the best sweet tea! 2015-07-23 17.46.59Today they had Free Tea Day! So I had to stop and give a Get Out of Hell Free tract in exchange for a cup of free tea!

Then it was off to VBS on the road Day Three. I got to share the Gospel with a couple people including handing out a Car Crash tract to one of the men in the parking lot. I asked if he knew the good news. He said no. So I shared the Gospel with him.

 

Day 150716 : Salt and Water

READ MORE

Got to hand out a number of tracts and talk to several people about Jesus today. On my way to work I had to stop by the post office. One the way back out another customer came in, so I handed her a Bucket List tract from the July mailing of the Bezeugen Tract Club.

I got off of work early and met my wife for a date! We went to the movies and saw Inside Out. That was fun. At the theater I gave MyCard to three employees working at snack bar. They were all checking to see if they were good enough to go to Heaven. The ticket taker got a Ten Commandments tract. After the movie ended, when I came back out four employees were waiting to clean the theater. Three of them were standing against the wall and one was holding the door. I gave each of the three Camo Cards, Ten Commandments and Are You a Good Person respectively. The third one asked “what is it?” so I told them they are Gospel tracts. When I went to hand one to the guy holding the door he reminded me that he already got one at the snack bar!

After the movie it was off to Buffalo Wild Wings for dinner. I handed a Get Out of Hell Free card to the host who seated us. After2015-07-16 19.28.05 we sat down and placed our drink order one of the hostesses came over holding the Get Out of Hell Free card. She said, “you gave this to someone when you came in….” Kind of funny is I was thinking, “oh, no”, I am about to get reprimanded for handing out tracts. Then she said, “can I get one too?” I asked if she was a Christian and she said, “kind of”. So I gave her a Get Out of Hell Free Card and then gave her a few other tracts that i had with me.

Then she explained further, “my grandmother is a Jehovah’s Witness, can you tell me the difference between that and Christian?” I told her that the full explanation might take a little while, but I’d summarize. Then I gave her my card and invited her to call me and she and I and my wife could have a longer conversation about it.

I explained to her that Jesus must be God in order to be the perfect sacrifice to pay for the sins of the world. I told her that if he was not God, and was just a man, then he would not be perfect and His payment on the cross would not be sufficient. She nodded in agreement. Then I said, “the difference between Christian and Jehovahs Witness is that the JW deny the Deity of Jesus.” I explained to her that John 1:1 indicates that the word was God and that John 1:14 indicates the Word became flesh. So I said, “from these two verses it is clear that Jesus is God.” Again she nodded in agreement.

I then explained that the problem with the Jehovah’s Witnesses is that they have a translation of the Bible that adds one letter there in John 1:1 which says the word was “a” god. In essence they strip the Deity of Jesus with one letter.

Finally I explained to her that there are many “Jesus’s” and that people call them all the same as if they are both the same. I picked up the salt shaker and my glass of water. I told her, let’s say I tell you these are both water. Then I offer you a drink. Which would you want to drink from? She pointed to the water.  I said, in the same way, it is important to follow the true Jesus!

She thanked me for the conversation. I invited her to email or call and I’d provide her more information.

When we paid the bill I left a Thank You tract for the waitress!
