I was going through the checkout line when the young man bagging my groceries asked if I wanted help out.
I didn’t need help, but I looked at him and wondered if he knew the Lord. So I said, “Thank you! That would be nice.”
I’ve discovered most of these young workers enjoy an opportunity to get out of the store and into some fresh air. While walking to the car I made some small talk:
“Have you worked here long? Are you a student? Hey! I’m taking a survey! May I ask you one question?”
“If you were to die today, do you know where you’d go?”
“No, not really. Maybe hell.”
“Oh dear! You know Jesus came to earth just so He could save people, so they don’t have to go to hell. We’re all sinners and we all need a Savior.”
I reached into my purse and said, “I have a booklet with information right from the Bible. It’s called, “Would You Like to Know God Personally?” You might like it. It will show you how you can make Jesus your Savior so you’ll know you are going to heaven.”
He said, “Hey, thanks! I take my break in 10 minutes—I’ll read it then!”
Just in case he wanted to learn more, I had written on the back of the booklet: https://www.godlife.com .

What about you? Have you ever considered sharing Christ in this way?
[This life is temporary. This life is short. When this life is over, our bodies will die and become empty shells, but our souls will continue to live forever. Where will the “real you” live? Will you live for all eternity separated from God? Or will you spend eternity in the presence of God in heaven?
