I know a woman who was prompted by God several years ago to give her unbelieving neighbor a bible. A while later, she invited him to a Sunday School class party. Now, she’s 25 years older than he, so it wasn’t like a date!
But she knew that he didn’t have a relationship with Jesus and she wanted him to see that Christians are normal people whose sins have been forgiven.
He agreed to go and he loved it. The folks at the party were very kind and caring with him. He agreed to come to church for the mid-week service because dinner was served. Again, the folks loved on him and made him feel welcome. (And the food wasn’t bad either!) He came each week for the dinner and as he did, he built relationships with many there.
Eventually he decided he was ready for Sunday morning. Again, his new friends were thrilled to see him on a Sunday and welcomed him warmly. Of course, each time he was there, he was given teaching from God’s word and saw it being lived out in front of him. And he saw the difference in his new friends.
I heard he has accepted Christ as his own and had been baptized into the family of faith!
You know, sometimes we are afraid to talk to people about Jesus because we are afraid they will ask us something that we don’t know the answer to. Love Heart, you don’t have to have all the answers, I promise.
If you will just listen to the urgings of the Holy Spirit, He may just allow you to be a part of something wonderful…like the salvation of a friend! Oh yeah, his new slogan is, “I came for food and stayed for God!” Don’t you love it? Gwen~
