Holidays As Springboards posted by John Sorensen on Nov 10, 2021
Hi, I’m John Sorensen, President of Evangelism Explosion International, and you’re listening to Share Life Today.
Did you know that many of our major celebrations can be springboards into the Gospel? Talking about them can open the door to a spiritual conversation with your family and friends. For instance, an easy one is sharing about the true meaning of Christmas. On Hanukkah, you can share about the light of the world that God sent to us — Jesus the Messiah. But today, I want to talk about how you can use the story of Thanksgiving. In the fall of sixteen twenty-one, when their labors were rewarded with a bountiful harvest of food after a year of sickness and scarcity, the Pilgrims gave thanks to God. And there are so many reasons we that have to be thankful to Him today. I know I am thankful for His grace and mercy. And even though I am a sinner, He died to take my sins away. And now I have a fulfilling life through my relationship with Jesus. Well, this is just one of the many ways you can get into a spiritual conversation.
