Every Day Thoughts for the Church by a Guy Who Loves the Church
Gospel Tracts and Cases of Beer
A few years ago, a high school student came up
to me and asked me for some Gospel tract booklets. I gave him a pretty big stack and he excitedly
took them and left. The next day, he came back and asked for more
tracts…I looked at him and said, “What happened to the
ones I gave you yesterday?I gave you
His eyes lit up and he looked at me and said “I left your office and went down to Alberston’s
grocery store.I was going to walk
around the store handing out the tracts to people, but then I got a better
idea…I went up and down the soda and beer aisles and
slipped a Gospel tract in every case of soda and beer!!
I looked at him and said, “That is awesome, I love your passion…But….
You can’t do that! That is called tampering, you
could get arrested for something like that!
We then devised some more legal strategies for
him to pass out tracts and off he went.
About 2 weeks later, a lady called our Church.She asked to speak to a Pastor and got a hold of
Bob Johnson…She told Bob, “Hey I got your Church’s phone
number off the back of a little booklet, I found in a case of beer.
I read through it and I want to know more about Jesus Christ!”
How crazy is that!!
Now, I am not advocating that we start a tract
smuggling ministry in our local grocery stores!!!
Please don’t do that.But, this is just evidence of God’s power at
work in our Mission.
If He can use a small Gospel tract in a case of
beer, He can THRU his power use anything and everything!
Our job is to be obedient,to stay
focused on our Missionand God’s
power will do what He wills from there!
