You Never Know What Will Happen
Standing outside an ice cream shop, a League Member and his friend were having a conversation, when a guy walked past him slowly enough to be slipped a Gospel of John. The Member described,
As I simply reached out and handed him a Gospel, he took it.
The guy continued walking on, but… a couple of minutes later,
he returned and asked what the booklet was that I had handed him.
Thinking that the guy was going to reject the Gospel booklet, the League Member hesitantly began to share about Jesus and the message enclosed in the Gospel. He told,
Surprised at how interested the man became in the Gospel,
I listened as he began to share some of his personal story.
After a bit of talk, he offered to go into the shop and buy us ice cream cones.
The man’s wife and daughter were with him. We offered a Gospel to his daughter and his wife told us she had been praying for her husband. He had recently been reading a child’s Bible that she had given him when he asked some questions. The Member continued,
The man’s wife revealed that he doesn’t quite know
what to do with what he is learning in the Bible.
They all sat and ate their ice cream, while the Member explained the Gospel to the man.
Delighted… The League Member revealed,
The man understood the Gospel and was ready
to affirm his belief in Jesus and claim his salvation.
You just never know what will happen when you share a Gospel!
