Never Know What a Day Will Bring

Never Know What a Day Will Bring

Yesterday, while at my local T-mobile store, I had the unique opportunity of being witness to a T-bone car accident involving two vehicles. Instinctive to my military and first responder training, I grabbed the store manager and we ran to the scene before the police showed up. The gentleman in the vehicle whose airbag deployed was in shock, but safe. We pulled him out and treated him for his shock, sitting him down on the curb to be with him until the police and emergency professionals arrived to take over.

The manager and I then returned to the store to process what just happened (and to finalize my transaction), when an opportunity came to share why I served as an Air Force Chaplain (he was in the Navy). I explained that I wanted to serve both God AND country to bring Jesus into places where people would never choose to search for Him otherwise. He asked about what makes Christianity so different than the other religions he’s researching.
I shared the importance of who Jesus Christ is and His exclusive claims that place Him head and shoulders above every other religion (John 14:6). We had a deep conversation about Him, which I hope will lead to a future discussion. One thing is clear to this nice young man: “Christ died for our sins and rose from the Dead” and “You can be saved through faith in Christ.” These phrases come from Larry Moyer’s Show Me How to Share the Gospel.

You never know what a day will bring.

I love you and pray God will give you an opportunity to share HIS love for you today with someone who’s searching.
“He is about to break into the open with his rule, so proclaim the Message with intensity; keep on your watch. Challenge, warn, and urge your people. Don’t ever quit. Just keep it simple.” (2 Timothy 4:2 MSG)
