On this beautiful Saturday morning, I was sitting in a waiting room at a car dealership, waiting patiently like the other patrons for the completion of the service to my vehicle. Minding my own business... Suddenly the lady waiting with me and a few others starting talking about moving cities and the potential business opportunities available. Firstly, I looked at the reaction of the others and smiled as I recognized the shocked disbelieve on their faces. They didn't expect a stranger to just start talking to them!
We started talking and enjoyed each others company while sipping on amazing complimentary coffee. As we discussed some ideas, the others started to join in on the conversion and added value based on their social and business experiences.
It's easier for us to talk about God to fellow Christians isn't it? But is it as easy to talk about God to complete strangers? People we know who aren't saved. because WHAT WOULD THEY THINK AND SAY? I pondered a bit on the following I heard in a sermon by Francis Chan: "How much do you hate people not to talk about God to them? Enough to send their souls to eternal damnation?"
I've heard this said once: "Sometimes you will be the only Bible people see" This rings true, because I'm the mirror for God reflecting His love. I don't want them to see me. I want them to see God. To know that even if I'm just a stranger to them, that God loves them unconditionally unto eternity and beyond.
