A good friend of mine, Eric Therrien, who is a plumber, shared with us on Facebook how two telephone calls, a phone solicitor and a phone sales person, provided him an opportunity to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Listen to the story in his own words.
"A telephone solicitor called while I was eating dinner, I decided to share the Gospel with him. I explained to him the origin of sin the the solution that God has provided. This then led to a conversation about about his spiritual state. It ended in prayer. Please pray for Dorell's salvation."
ERIC'S COMMENT TO HIS OWN POST:
"Just got off the phone with another phone solicitor, pray for Flora."
"This is so awesome! Eric share with us all how you initiate that conversation after they call. How do you begin to share the Gospel?"
"Jay, Dorell was calling to speak with my wife he was from verison customer service. When I told him that she was not here I just asked him if I could share the Gospel with, obviously God's been working with him because he was so open. Flora was with some charity that has a truck that goes through the neighborhood and wondered If I could leave clothes or other good at the curb. This was to easy I told her I didn't have anything to leave out but what I did have I would share with her. This lead to a Gospel presentation. Every call is different I started doing this over a year ago because living waters ministry recommended practicing giving the good person test this way. People were open to taking the test but I found I could rarely get to the Gospel, so I have refined it to the Gospel first."
ISN'T THIS POWERFUL? ISN'T THIS SO SIMPLE? ISN'T THIS SOMETHING WE ALL COULD BE DOING?
Of course it is! If we would become intentional and look for the opportunities for where God is already at work.
Can you imagine what would happen if you made a commitment to share the Gospel with every wrong number or telephone solicitor that called you? You might find that God starts sending you lots of wrong numbers!
