I was invited to speak at three different church fellowships in another city. A year later I was invited back. A pastor from yet another church approached me. I was astounded by his words:
“I want to thank you. Last year I heard you speak and it changed my life.”
“Oh? How so?”
“I had never considered going out and sharing my faith as you do. After hearing your message, I invited some of our people to do the same. We went to a park, set up a table and began giving out free Bibles and tracts. People would stop to talk and ask for prayer. It has strengthened my faith and the faith of our church. Peoples’ lives have been changed and our new ministry has brought great joy.
Wow! What can be more humbling, coming from a pastor! Humbling for him and even more humbling for me. I am nothing on my own. I am simply a follower of Christ trying to be obedient. How grateful I am to God that He would use me to impact another in this way.

What about you? Have you ever considered going out and sharing your faith? How did you go about it? What worked best for you?
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?
