Saved and On My Way to Heaven

One afternoon as I got a ride to the Charlotte airport for a flight to New York City, my driver (who’s a student at MorningStar Ministries) admitted that she wasn’t too comfortable sharing her faith.  I can understand where she’s coming from.  As I often say, the hardest part about evangelism is simply getting started.  But once you get used to asking people questions about their eternal destiny, you will look to turn various situations into soul-winning opportunities. 

How many times have you walked into a store and the clerk asked, “How are you doing today?”  My usual reply is, “I’m saved and on my way to heaven.  How about you?”  If the clerk responds with a comment like “I don’t know” or “I hope so”, then that indicates they are giving serious thought about eternity.  At the very least you can offer them a gospel tract.  If the clerk doesn’t seem too busy, you can take time to share the gospel and offer to pray with them.

So the next time a stranger asks how you are doing, boldly tell them, “Saved and on the way to heaven.  How about you?”  That can open up doors for them to find their way to heaven as well.

“A true witness delivers souls...” - Proverbs 14:25
