I met Todd at the mall for lunch and then we talked to some people and shared the Gospel. Probably had at least a dozen conversations and handed out even more tracts than that. I want to focus on just one conversation.
We were at a kiosk where they sell personal massage units that do deep muscle massage with electric pulses. It is similar to a TENS unit. They put the unit on me and show me how it works. Feels pretty good. But I told them I was not interested.
So I ask one of the guys there, “what do you think happens when you die?” He had no real strong opinions either way and said, “when I die, I’ll let you know.” So I took him to the commandments which he admitted to breaking the fourth, seventh and ninth. But then he said he was not subjected to them because he is not of the tribes. Turns out he is from Israel. But, not religious. I tried to explain that everyone will be subject to the judgment. But he dismissed it.
So I asked to have the massager removed from my back and turned to Todd so that we could leave. When I did, he got very interested in what we were talking about. He started asking “what kind of Christian are you” and “where do you go to church?” We explained that there is only one universal church of which Christ is the head. We asked him to read the Bible, starting with Matthew and he said he would check it out.
It was very interesting, that the conversation was seemingly going no where until I excused myself, then he got very interested. I pray that he will read Matthew, then the New Testament. But, above all, I pray that God will save him.
