One thing my husband is passionate about is sharing the Gospel. He came across Ray Comfort’s sermon Hell’s Best Kept Secret about ten years ago, and we have been fans ever since.
A while back when I made a deal with my husband that he had to read one of the books he has before buying another one, the first one he pulled out was Ray Comfort’s School for Biblical Evangelism.
This book has…wait for it…768 pages! I thought I was home free. There was no way, I thought, he was going to make it through that book, but he did, reading a little here and a little there while he was finishing up grad school. I was so proud of him!
Recently he purchased The Way of the Master Season 4, and we have been watching it as a family in the evenings before bed. It has been such a sweet time with the kids, even though the little ones run around and play. But it is so fun to see Ray and the team share the gospel and interesting to see people’s reactions.
As we have been watching the show and as the kids have watched their dad share the gospel with others the children have become very interested in sharing too. Jason has purchased many of Ray Comfort’s tracts.
One of his favorites is the 1,000,000 tract. It’s funny that he has had people fight over these. He’ll give one away and friends of the person will be yelling, “I want one!”
His other favorite is the Atheist Test. Recently Faith asked her dad for one of these so that she could give it to a man at a restaurant. I’m not sure why she wanted to give it to that particular man at that particular time as the place was crowded. But the man took it happily, and then we watched at his entire table went through the test and discussed it the whole time they ate their meal!
Now the kids have their own packs of tracts. As I was getting ready to take them to the library reading program at a nearby baptist church, the kids all ran upstairs to get their tracts. I tried to discourage them as I had visions of the kids interrupting the program. “This is a Christian library. They are already Christians,” was my lame objection.
“But Mom, what if they think they are Christians, but they really are not?” She had me there!
This has been such a neat way to get my kids thinking of eternal things and wanting to share the Gospel. You can learn more about Ray Comfort’s ministry at Living Waters.
