Dear Blogging Friends: I know most people who read my posts are born-again Christians, but I do not want to take that so much for granted that I do not often relate the Gospel to anyone who has not chosen to be a Follower of Jesus Christ.
This is brought to my attention by the “earbug” going around in my head at this time. It is the song: You Never Mentioned Him To Me.
I was entering a Braum’s store the other day. A thirty-ish brawny looking guy was waiting at the corner of the building. I headed his way. He asked me if I needed help. I said I did not but thanks much. Then I asked him if he was a Christian. He said he was. I said, “When you get as close to eternity as I am, you’ll be glad you have made that decision.”
Now that was not a very hard thing to do, but how the devil or his imps trompted on me. When I got home I thought “What if that guy follows me home? You have no business talking to a stranger.” Oh, yes, I had my conflict over that little “mention.” On the other hand, as I wrote on a Friday Fictioneers post last week (I think) we never know what “divine appointment” God might have set up for us.
Was the man a Christian? Or, did he just answer that he was to keep me from hitting him over the head with my Bible? 😀 Does it matter if God set it up?
