Death, Where Is Your Sting?

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

One of the hardest things that we can ever face in life is a close encounter with death. Whether it is ourself or the loss of a loved one, these are life-changing and difficult times. But God can use these very moments to draw us or others to Himself. This is exactly what happened in Barry’s life. In college, he met a girl that he admired very much and always wished to meet. Well one day, she was killed in a car accident. Barry was crushed and went to the school’s chapel to pray. In that moment, he knew there was something missing in his life but didn’t know what it was. Then soon after, he heard the Good News of the Gospel, and he put His trust in Christ. Now, he knows for certain that he has eternal life. And that’s changed everything. Sharing a testimony like this is a great way start a Gospel conversation with family and friends about the eternal hope found in Jesus. For more ways to share, visit our website at
