Unique Tract Reactions
November 22, 2009
1 Thessalonians 1:5 (New Living Translation)
For when we brought you the Good News, it was not only with words but also with power, for the Holy Spirit gave you full assurance that what we said was true. And you know of our concern for you from the way we lived when we were with you.
God’s Word has can have an explosive effect on people. When sharing your faith, sometimes you can see people’s reactions. I had three separate incidents by just using a simple gospel tract.
The first was an older couple. The man noticed I dropped a Million Dollar Bill. He thought I accidentally dropped the bill.(I did not.) I told him I sometimes purposefully drop the Gospel tract which look like real money. He said that was neat. He then proceeded to tell me he was a retired minister and how it was a blessing to see someone evangelizing. He encouraged me to never quit doing what the Lord started in me.
The second incident was at my every other year eye exam. After the doctor was done checking my eyes, I showed him one of my eye illusion tracts(the curved angle tract). He liked it and I told him he could have it to show his other colleagues in his eye profession. Then I told him there was a gospel message on the back of the tracts.
The last and funny incident was at KFC. I sat next to the trash cans. I placed the fake Monopoly game piece(Get out of Hell free card) on top of the cans where the trays are returned. I watch how one man took the card back to his family and church family, about 25 adults and children, occupying half the KFC building.(Must have been Baptists. Ha! Ha!) He handed off to one of the ladies and she very loudly in the dinning area read the gospel tract. They kept the tract.
Just because someone attends a church and has the appearance of a Christian, does not mean they are saved. It maybe someone in the church group will come to actual repentance and faith in Jesus instead of playing church religion.
I did have other opportunities to hand out tracts or place them in unique areas such as benches, tables, books, and etc. It was these unique incidents God let me encounter the explosive power of the Holy Spirit.
