Reaching Our Neighbors for Christ posted by John Sorensen on Feb 08, 2017
Are you hesitant to share the Gospel with your neighbors?
Hi, I’m John Sorensen, President of Evangelism Explosion International. One day, as my wife and I were out on a walk, a boy who lived next door joined us and told us his mother had moved out earlier that day. You know, it broke my heart. When I saw his father on their porch, I worked up the courage to walk next door and I told Bill how sorry I was to hear this and then I shared how Jesus was my best friend and He had changed my life, giving me peace and comfort during difficult times. Bill looked straight at me and you know what he called me? He said, you’re a liar. I was flabbergasted. But then he went on to say, “You said you were my friend and yet you’ve lived next to me for five years and never told me about Jesus? Well, you know, I had to apologize to Bill for not sharing the Good News sooner. And over the next weeks, Bill came to Christ and then later his wife did. They’re still happily married today. Now, what I shared with Bill was my testimony — and your testimony has power too. If you need help sharing it, visit ShareLife.today.
