Way of the Master has an episode titled “when things go wrong” and today I experienced a mini version of that. I met a friend for lunch. As I was walking into the restaurant, two young ladies were coming out. So I asked, “are you lucky?”. Reaching into my pocket, I pulled out a “Get Out of Hell Free” card tract and a “Good Card” tract instead of two “Are You Lucky” tracts. They looked at me a little weird. Recovering from the moment, I merely said, “oh well, you can have a Get Out of Hell Free” card instead. They gladly took them.
Once inside, I joined my friend who was already seated at the table. Realizing that I did not have any Are You Lucky tracts on me, I was going to have to try a different tract. Since the only ones from the tract club I had with me were the “Where will you spend Eternity?” tracts I decided to ask the waitress if she liked to read. Thinking she would say yes, I could then hand her the tract and she could order a book. Great plan. Except, she said, “no, I don’t like to read. I’m dyslexic!”
I gave her a Get Out of Hell Free card instead.
I’d given out three tracts, but still had not handed out one of the tracts from the March mailing of the Bezeugen Tract Club.
After lunch, I noticed two young men sitting at the table behind us. I walked over and asked, “do you like to read?” They both said, “yes!” So I gave them each a “Where will you spend eternity” tract and told them that they can order a free book from the web site on the back. They both said, “Thanks!” Then I left the restaurant.
On March 1st, I was at the mall. I handed out several of the Are You Lucky cards. I’d like to share my experience with one of them.
At the Great American Cookie store they had a tray of sample cookies. As the girl at the counter offered me a sample, I said, “oh it must be my lucky day!” Then I asked if she is lucky and handed her a card so she could find out.
She put her finger on the clover. It did not change. She started to read the back and then said she would look at it more after work.
Welcome to the As You Go blog. This blog exists in order to provide encouragement in daily evangelism “As You Go.” Jesus said in Matthew 28:19 to make disciples as you go. In order to make a disciple, first a person must repent and believe the Gospel. (Mark 1:15) We, therefore, encourage daily evangelism “as you go.” On this blog we will post regular messages with examples of how we distribute Gospel tracts and share the Gospel in daily life. If you need tracts, to hand out, then may I encourage you to enroll in the Bezeugen Tract Club.
