Sharing Jesus on the Pier

Today was another sweet afternoon walking out on the fishing pier with a friend.  We came prepared with Christian tracts in our big pockets, a small Bible and a Jesus movie, in hopes of opportunities to share them.

First we noticed two women taking photos of one another.  I asked if they’d like me to take a picture of both of them.  They were thrilled and posed with the waves breaking behind them.

We visited awhile and learned they had driven from out of town to celebrate their victory over addiction.  They had both been five years clean with the help of AA’s 12-Step Program.

We were able to share Jesus with them and they were fully receptive. They welcomed our literature and our prayers as we prayed not only for their spiritual growth, but also for their children.  Such joy with these precious ones!

Next we met a college nursing student walking his dog.  Such a dear young man.  He said he’d had a desire to know God, but didn’t know how to go about it.  He knew he was a sinner and he wanted to be saved. We explained the story of salvation and prayed with him to receive Christ.  We loaded him down with literature which he seemed thrilled to receive.  He was full of joy when we left him – and so were we!

Those we met who were actually fishing?  They were fun to get to know as well,  and also welcomed our “Good News about Jesus!”

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?   Learn more so you can make your most important decision:   http://www.godlife.com/gospel/

About Kathleen

God delights in working through His people as they submit to Him. Jesus said to go into all the world and preach the good news to everyone (Mark 16:15). No matter where we live on this planet, people are separated from God because of sin. We ALL need a Savior, and there’s only ONE. It brings me great joy to share Christ with the lost and lonely. Over the years I’ve learned a great deal while facilitating Bible studies. I’ve found myself on college and university campuses, the beach, the streets, the hospital, the jail and the juvenile facility for incarcerated teens sharing God’s message of love. I also serve as an online missionary with Global Media Outreach. I’ve seen countless lives transformed when people turn away from sin and turn to Jesus. The changes God makes are real and lasting. These are some of my experiences. NOTE: My stories have been altered, removing any and all identifying factors.

    To God be the glory. It is a blessing to be able to share Christ with others. It’s even better when those whom you share with are open to hearing about and receiving Christ.

      Absolutely! And sometimes there are those who wave us off without a word. We smile and move on, while silently praising God anyway.💕
