When I first became a Christian, I lived in Orlando Florida and took the bus to and from work everyday. I had this giant Bible that I carried with me. I would sit in the very back, if a seat was available, and try to position myself in the center seat. That way, anyone getting on the bus could see me. Well, I would open up my Bible and just read. Not aloud, but to myself. I'm amazed at how much attention I got from doing that
. From those who would say, "isn't that nice young man, good to see you reading the Word," to those trying to interrupt me from reading. There was one guy who shouted out, "I love satan!" All while staring at me. I had conversations with Moslems, Bahai, Mormons, JW's, Seventh day Adventist, Athiest, Satanist, and a lot of homeless. It was a great time in which I had what my wife called a bus ministry.
I had a shirt once that was a misprint. I paid three bucks for it but it ended up being one of the greatest ice breakers I've ever had.
It was of a portrait of Jesus with the words "Knock, Knock," printed on it. The misprint was they accidentally printed the shirt upside down. So many people walking down the street would ask, "why is Jesus upside down?" To which I would reply that it's us that's upside down and if you want, I can tell you how you can be made "right side up" with God.
Being creative is a big key in witnessing. I love how Ray Comfort uses different tactics to draw in people to hear the Gospel. LivingWaters is a great ministry to learn how to share your faith with others.
At the moment, I like to blog and post on other sites to spread the Word. I witness one on one when I can, and I love to talk with coworkers. In the near future my wife and I will be doing a newsletter and passing it out to anyone who will take it.
I drive a school bus, so I'm not supposed to share my faith with the students. However, there is a loop hole where if asked, I can answer. So I do
. For Christmas, we handed out the Genius movie DVD's, from Living Waters, to coworkers and students. It was well received and we pray for their salvation.
Thanks for reading the ramblings of a rambler,
