I was heading downtown to do some witnessing and had a quick chat with Sean, the driver of the train, as he was getting ready for his duties. When I got off at my exit, I walked up to his open window and handed him a One Second After You… booklet, a gospel tract, and a $10 bill. I said, “I think you will enjoy this booklet, and Jesus said it is more blessed to give than receive. So here is a blessing for you. Have a nice lunch on me this week.” A huge smile spread across his face, and he was very thankful.
Five hours later, I was coming home later that night. It was the last station. I was handing out some things, walking up some stairs, and I heard the roller bag. I turned and looked, and it was him. He was the driver of this train as well! He looked at me and said, “Man, I really liked that booklet. I read the whole thing!” He was very excited. He said, “Are you a professor or something?” I got a kick out of that one.
Sean was very intrigued by all of the research about the brain, the eye, DNA, how to prove the Bible true, etc. I let him know that I wasn’t a professor but I do a lot of research and studying. He said, “You must have a doctorate then.” Okay, now I am totally laughing! If any of you want to give me an honorary doctorate, just let me know!! I will receive!
I let him know that Christians are supposed to be smart people. We “study to shew ourselves approved unto God.” We should be learned people. I let him know that I like to read, study, and be able to help people with their questions. I also let him know that belief in God is completely logical and that it is actually illogical to not believe in God.
Go have a conversation with him and give him something to read. You won’t be sorry, and neither will he! There is a “Sean” waiting for you in your life.
Until the Nets are Full,
P.S. These booklets are great to give out year-round. Combined with a blessing, they can really impact someone’s heart for the Lord!
