A New Perspective
With the pandemic, it seems a good idea to be more careful these days.
That’s why Lisa decided to put “thank you” tips for the men who collect her trash,
along with Gospels of John, into plastic bags to hand to them.
Lisa recalled that one gentleman thanked her for the Gospel but explained that he only reads the Old Testament, not the New. She had prayed for guidance when picking out the Gospel covers and she recounted,
God answered my prayer.
The Gospel cover I had given him was an outer space scene with the words,
“In the beginning…”
The Gospel of John that Lisa gave him that day offered a new perspective by tying the Old and New Testaments together. She prayed he would become interested in seeing what the New Testament says and meet Jesus there in the Gospel of John. Lisa confided,
I knew the gentlemen is familiar with Genesis 1:1
since he read the Old Testament.
Therefore, I simply offered him a new perspective
in John 1 which begins the same way… “In the beginning…”
