Reaching Our Neighbors For Christ

Hi, I’m John Sorensen, President of Evangelism Explosion International, and you’re listening to Share Life Today.

Are you hesitant to share the Gospel with your neighbors? You know, one day, as my wife and I were out on a walk, a boy who lived next door joined us and told us his mother had moved out earlier that day. Well, it broke my heart. When I saw his father on their porch, I worked up the courage to walk up and tell Bill how sorry I was to hear this. And then I shared that Jesus is the most important thing to me, He had changed my life, giving me peace and comfort during difficult times. Well, Bill looked at me and said, “…you’re a liar.” He said, “You’re my friend, and you’ve lived next to me for five years. You’ve never told me about Jesus!” Well, you know, I had to apologize to Bill for not sharing the Good News sooner. And soon, Bill gave his heart to Jesus. His wife did, too; and they are happily married today. You know, we can make a difference, by telling our communities about the Good News of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Maybe you don’t know how?
