Don’t forget the un-obvious ways to share the Gospel

Thanksgiving day I received a text that said “happy thanxgiving”. I looked at the incoming number and did not recognize it, so I checked my address book. Huh, I thought. Who is this?

Then it went “click”. Ah, a chance to share Christ again. So I text him back and said also “happy thanksgiving” and mentioned Christ. I never heard back from him. But the awesome thing is that once again he (or she) got to be reminded about Christ. On that day there will be no excuses such as, “I never heard about Christ”. He will play back the DVD (or something that will be out of this world) and show them all the times they had opportunity.

What about the telemarketing person that calls and tries to sell you something? That is a human being that God loves and gave his Son for.
How about the person that knocks on the door selling something?
The tow truck driver coming to retrieve the locked in keys?
The person that just backed into your car?
The cable man that just showed up to install the Internet?
The service person that has come into your home to fix your appliance?

The list can go on and on. The main thing is don’t forget the opportunities out there in one given day. And be ready at all times. It might be an un-obvious opportunity.

God bless you as you get ready!

    Amen brother!

    I look for these opportunities all the time, but they seem to be less and less well received. Even a smile and a hello get frowns and grimaces or paranoid glances. Satan has got people literally closing their ears and eyes. How can we wake them up? God has to somehow. Maybe we need a depression??
    A disaster (God forbid) to wake people out of their stupor?

    Yes brother, as we know it is going to take something big to wake people up. That is the business God is in. His love works in ways we cannot fathom. He allows many things in the earth to happen for purpose and reason.
    Thanks for stopping by.
    PS. I haven’t forgotten you. It just has been busy while making every moment count. Along with that the family has been very supportive and wanting time with Dad during this testing time.
    We will get together soon.

    A silly grin works wonders for me. It’s truly amazing now it brighten’s people when you grin at them. Sometimes I do it even when I don’t feel like it just to make a point.
    There’s just something in all of us that can’t seem to resist the smile of a baby. Even when I feel bad, I can’t seem to help smiling back at a kid that’s smiling at me.
    So, smile. It might show the Jesus in you to someone.

    Jerald,
    That is good advice, especially if we’re smiling when people don’t expect it. We’re supposed to be showing we are always hopeful no matter what the circumstances!

    Jerald,
    Excellent! We truly see very little smiles in our world today. We of all people have something to smile about.
    Thank you.
