While on my journey I have had the opportunity to share the gospel with a few people. The gospel is defined as the good news. The good news that there can be salvation for people who have rebelled against a Holy God and justly deserve his punishment or wrath.
Each and every person has broken the law and rebelled against the Holy God. The consequences of this rebellion is that each and every person deserves to feel his wrath for eternity. The good news is that Christ died on the cross and bore the wrath of God that you deserve. If we would repent (turn from our sins in thought and action) and trust in Christ we can be saved from the wrath that we deserve. Not only are we saved from the consequences of our sin but we are welcomed into God’s family. I love to be able to share the gospel with different people.
There have been 3 primary ways that I have gone about sharing the gospel while on this trip. I use gospel tracts, life situations, and intentional notes.
Thank You Gospel Tract
As I travel I have to stop and eat. While ordering food I have had the opportunity to give a Thank You gospel tract to many of the servers. I have had some great responses. My favorite was from a lady who asked if she had to pass this on to someone else. She wanted to be able to keep the gospel tract. I told her ‘No’ you don’t have to pass it on and that I just wanted to say Thank You and for you to be able to read the gospel.
Rocky Mountain National Park
While traveling I also have an opportunity to interact with people over different life situations, the gospel opportunities abound. I was hiking in the Rocky Mountain National Park and I got tired. I sat down on the side of the trail and an older couple came by and I asked how they were doing. They said they were doing good. We talked about how I was a Missionary to South Brazil. Then I began to share the gospel with them. After sharing the gospel we parted ways and I continued up the trail as they went down.
Lake in Loveland, CO
The final way that I have been able to share the gospel is with intentional notes that I write to them. One time I was staying at a person’s house in Loveland, CO that I found through airbnb. After I stayed there I left a note with a gospel tract. I got a response the lady saying that she was offended by some of the things in the note and that Jesus would just love her where she was. I then responded to her with another note. In the note I shared with her that Jesus would visit people where they were but that people did not stay the same after Jesus visited them. I specifically shared about how Zacchaeus was visited by Jesus where he was at. However, Zacchaeus was completely changed by the experience. He renounced his sinful ways and his life was changed forever.
