Talking to Strangers

I handed a man a gospel of John this morning. He was my seatmate on the subway. He was reading a book about health and whole foods, so I wrote down Dr. John McDougall’s web address (https://www.drmcdougall.com/) and told him to look him up. I have no idea why I did that. I just felt compelled. He said he had heard about Dr. McDougall recently, and here I am telling him the same thing. I was going to leave it at that, but felt the Holy Spirit nudge me. Didn’t God just open up that conversation? Hadn’t God put this man in the seat next to me? I had traveled with an empty seat almost to my stop, which in morning commute hours is unheard of, so clearly this was a divine appointment. Did I think all these thoughts right on the spot? No, not one of them. I’m reflecting on the encounter as I write this. I got up to get ready for my stop. I felt the Holy Spirit nudge me, so I whipped out the gospel of John (https://www.ptl.org/) and handed it to him. He said he had never read the bible. He didn’t know what to do with it. I told him it was better than anything he was reading. He was stunned and looked at me suspiciously. One minute he was animated about being healthy and the next it was like I handed him a disease, but he took it. I prayed for him as I left the station. seed

Are you ready to witness for the Lord? Have materials in your pocket ready to give away and pray for encounters. He will give them to you. Nobody’s going to hug you for it, but you know God will be pleased. Who knows how many people will end up in heaven as a result of your encounters.

Talk to me.

    1. Yay! I’ve been witnessing badly for years and it hasn’t stopped me. Go for it and then tell us your stories.
