Useful conversation starter during COVID-19 when you’re in a supermarket queue: “...Strange times these!...It’s pretty unbelievable how the Coronavirus has changed everything....(Ask for their name)Have you been badly affected?....Do you ever wonder why God allows things like this to happen?...” Listen patiently to what they have to say, and then in a couple of minutes share the hope of the Gospel with them and offer to pray for them. You could start by saying something like this: “...A Bible verse that has always given me a lot of hope is the one that says ‘...God so loved the world that He gave His only Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life’...With all the huge mess that us humans make in life, I am so moved that God still loves us, and that He proved His love by sending Jesus to die on a cross in our place, to pay the price for our mess. I am blown away that Jesus came back to life, as that shows to me how He is able to overcome disease and death!...I often struggle to see why people find it hard to turn to Him in faith. All we have to do is say sorry to Him for our wrongdoing, and start living our lives for Him...I did that 28 years ago and never looked back - and it is my faith today that is getting me through this COVID-19 pandemic, and it is my faith that will get me through the next crisis that blows my way!!!...How about you, my friend - do you believe in God? Can I pray for you today?”... See where this type of conversation leads you, and be ready to adapt. I spoke to 4 people in a supermarket queue the other day, and all 4 people were happy to talk to me. I was able to pray for 3 of them, and 1 of them wanted to put their faith in Christ! Why don’t you give it a go and have a Gospel conversations!
God bless you and keep on keeping on... #gcstips #gcstraining
