Today, I had one of the best opportunities to witness that I have had in a long time. My visitation partner and I met a lady today who did not seem to be very receptive at first. I was ready to leave and go to the next house after a brief time, but my partner started to talk with her after I had talked with her.
As he began to talk with her, she opened up and shared how she had just started reading a kid’s book about the Bible. I checked the book to see if it was sound. Looking over the book, I got the idea that I would try to witness to her again.
Basing my second attempt on what she had said she read in that book, I began witnessing to her about whether she knew that her sins were forgiven. Her answers revealed that she was uncertain. She thought that she had once been saved but was no longer saved because of how she was living now.
I took her to Ephesians 2:8-10 and explained carefully to her that she could not be saved by her works. She received that passage well, and I shared many other passages with her.
She shared that she had visited several churches and did not like them because what she heard there were stories instead of the Bible. She appreciated the witness that she received and said that she would like to visit our church.
I hope to follow up on her sometime soon. Please pray that she might come to church and be saved.
