  • Evangelism help

    I'm needing some advice, tips, encouragement.

    Every Monday when I go grocery shopping, I see the same guy out in the parking lot. He drives a little company pickup truck and empties the garbage cans in the lot. I've made it a point to say good morning and smile when he's in the same area I have parked. I'm trying to be a bit more brave about talking to others. What is something I could do or say? I know I could just hand him a tract and walk on into the store, but maybe I should find out if he goes to church? I don't want to take up much time as he is working. I've been praying about this but could use some help from others who have been there.
    Isaiah 26:3 You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You.

    I'm sure everyone could guess what I'm about to say.

    I'd get an inexpensive Bible, put a tract in it, and offer it to the guy. If he is saved, he'll tell you. Odds are high he will take it, and say thank you. Worst case he'll say "No thanks" and you move on.

    Hebrews 4:12 and John 6:45 will do the rest.

    " I have had an increasing burden to engage in some down and dirty, street evangelism." March 6, 2010

    Isaiah 6:8 I heard the voice of the Lord, saying: “ Whom shall I send, And who will go for Us?”

    Then I said, “Here am I! Send me.”

    Matthew 22:9 NIV
    'So go to the street corners and invite to the banquet anyone you find.’


    I'm praying for you daily!

      Sometimes we try to make it too hard, huh?

        Well the devil likes to build it up in our heads, make it really hard and scary.

        "I already have a Bible" is one I get pretty often, when refused. That's always a good moment, I tell them "I'll be praying for you every day" - which I say to everyone, regardless if they got a Bible or not. Recipients love to hear that, and it's true.

          Yes, I think that's definitely it.
