I thought since I am about to take on the task of encouraging women to share truth and their faith to a lost world, that I had better get my own act together.
I was out running errands yesterday and had transactions with three different people. Actually four, but one I learned had already put her faith and trust in the Lord.
I carry “Steps to Peace With God” in my purse and leave them at restaurants etc., but I decided to practice some personal contact with these people before I left them with a booklet.
It felt awkward, and I spoke words I don’t normally say because I am not used to this kind of dialogue, but it didn’t take long to figure out what might work.
The most moving response I got was after I had stood in line for about 10 minutes waiting for a cashier. I prayed and asked the Lord what I might say. I also asked Him for what she needed to hear.
I waited until our transaction was over. I asked her name, introduced myself and told her it was good to meet her. I then said, “I just want to tell you that God loves you, and no matter what you have done in your life, He is ready to forgive you.” I then gave her a booklet and told her she might want to read it later.
Her face dropped, I saw vulnerability, and some embarrassment. The Lord let me see the power of simply sharing truth with the dying world. A seed was planted, one more soul who might perish for lack of knowledge of the truth has been given an opportunity to make right their relationship with God.
Don’t Get Stuck in the Kitchen!
