Wishing to remember

by on September 23, 2015

Saturday Market’s free speech area was jammed with people. There were people selling glass pipes, crystals, and wooden jewelry boxes. A few had what looked like a junk drawers worth of stuff laid out in front of them to sell.

I set up where I was going to share the Gospel, and do a money for trivia give away. A boy stood at the edge of the chalk line I’d drawn.

“Do you know what I’m going to do?” I asked.

“Yep!” was his confident reply. “You’re going to give away money!”

I did the money for trivia to draw a crowd, and shared clearly with Stephanie, then with Harley. A guy named Daniel shouted out some questions as I finished sharing with Harley. Everyone stood around to hear the answers I gave him.

They boy who was there first didn’t win any money, but he wanted to try the “Good Person Test.” So, I gave it to him, shared the Gospel with him, and gave him a couple of tracts. I also gave him my last two dollar bill since I knew he had been hoping to win some money.

As I encouraged him to repent and trust in Christ, he said that he believed in many gods, the norse ones, and roman ones too.

This is where, as I was walking back to the car, I WISHED I had remembered to give him the first and second commandments!!! Those along with John 14:6 which says, “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father but by me.” God knows what we should say and to whom. He is the one who prepares hearts of people to hear the Gospel and be saved. He even knows what I will forget and what I will remember. I’m glad He is in charge of saving people and not me.
