“Am I Not Good Enough for You?”

I was going door-to-door looking for opportunities to minister and pray for people. It was a low income neighborhood. The houses were small and packed in next to each other. As I finished one side of the street, I noticed that on the other side some children had come out to play in the front yard.

Next door to them was a man sitting alone on his porch, drinking from a can. I moved towards the house with the children. Usually when children are there, you can gently approach the house, ask from a distance if you can talk to mom or dad, introduce yourself, and ask if you can make the kids some balloon animals. Usually at that point, you have the parents and the kids gathered around while you make balloons and are able to tell them about the Gospel.

I didn’t intend to leave out the man on his porch—I had planned to go to the house with the children first and let him watch and listen, which I thought might peak his curiosity and open the door for a conversation there as well. I’m saying this to explain my intention because as soon as I headed toward the children’s house, he called out to me, “What! Am I not good enough for you to talk to?!”

My heart sank. I hadn’t intended for him to feel invisible or like I didn’t care but I could easily see how he might have perceived my actions this way.

I stopped and turned to him.

“Not at all,” I called back. “I have balloons and just thought they might want some balloon animals but I’d love to talk with you for a bit.”

I expected rejection. He had a mad glare in his eyes. I had obviously offended him. He sat kind of hunched over and was drinking from a beer can.

He paused.

“What are you selling?” he said with a tone.

“I’m not selling anything,” I replied, walking towards him on the porch.

“Jesus Christ changed my life and I was just wandering if I could share my story with you.”

“If you want,” he said, although he didn’t seem very interested.

I sat down on the porch next to him and began to tell him how Jesus saved me and gave me real life, how before I came to Christ, I didn’t really know what peace and joy were, and that God has a gift of eternal life for anyone willing to receive him.

I asked if he’d like to know more.

He said yes.

I shared with him the plan of salvation of how Jesus saves and right there on the steps of that porch in front of that small house next to the yard where the children were still playing, he bowed his head and prayed to receive Christ as his Lord and Savior. Afterwards he looked at the beer can that was still in his hand and then, to my surprise, he flung it into the front yard.

“I don’t need that now,” he said.

I don’t think I’ll ever forgot how that beer can spun through the air, spraying a stream of liquid across the ground.

Jesus changed lives in the Bible and He still changes lives today.

The Bible says, “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved. How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? And how can anyone preach unless they are sent?” (Romans 10:13-15).

Kids Leading Kids to Christ

Imagine a fourth grade student meeting another child in the McDonald’s play area. They play for a while. Then he asks, “Can I tell you about the greatest thing that ever happened to me?” The new friend responds yes and the child begins to share his salvation testimony. Soon the student is drawing on the back of gum wrapper a picture that walks his new friend through the plan of salvation and before long they are bowing their heads to move from new friends in McDonalds to new brothers in Christ.

Imagine a fifth grader at a sleepover. He has been thinking about sharing Christ with his friend and looking for the right opportunity and before the night is over his friend has accepted Jesus as his Lord and Savior.

Picture a fourth grader at Chick-Fil-A. He and his dad are getting ready to leave when he says that he feel that God wants him to go to the play area to tell the other children about Jesus. Dad sits down and watches as his son meets new kids, tells them about Christ, sits down with a girl and eventually leads her to saving faith in the Lord.

Imagine a second grader on the back porch with a neighbor. They talk about a lot of things but on this day he tells her what Jesus means to him and continues to tell her how he was saved and how she can do the same. Moments later his dad is across the street, talking to her mom about how she gave her life to Christ. Her mom wipes tears from her eyes and says, “Thank you.”

These are all true stories of kids leading kids to Christ. In the backyard, at school, in the cafeteria, on the bus, on the ball field, at church, and even on the playground, these children are doing more than just attending Sunday School—they are learning that God has given them a very significant task in everyday life.

If a child can do this…so can you. It simply begins with a willing heart.

One of our kindergarten students, who attended a Christian school, drove past a public school in our community. Her mom said, “You know, the teachers there can’t talk about Jesus.”

Her daughter was quiet for a moment and then said, “I want to go to school there.”

“Why?” the mom asked, surprised.

“Because someone has to tell them about Jesus.”

Isaiah said: “I heard the Lord’s voice, saying, ‘Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?’ Then I said, ‘Here I am. Send me!’” (Isaiah 6:8-9a).

You have the message. You have the opportunity. Like these children, will you have the willingness to share?


Learn HERE the same method of sharing Christ that the kids used in the stories above. It’s a great way to teach your kids to lead others to the Lord too…and it’s free!

How God Touched a Life

“I don’t think I’ve ever seen anyone cry so hard.”

This past July I sat next to a 47-year old man who had attended one of our events. In the service I had shared about Jesus and Peter walking on the water.

“I just don’t know how much of that I can believe,” he said, with tears in his eyes. “I want to believe but how can I believe in a ‘good’ God when all I’ve ever seen is bad.”

He continued to tell me about his childhood and how, as an adult, he had gone to prison for attempted murder.

“I even have a 9-year old daughter that I’ve never met,” he said.

We talked. He struggled. God was moving in his heart. We talked about his life. We talked about Scripture, about how Jesus had called Peter to come and how Peter had stepped out of the boat. He didn’t need to have all the answers to simply trust.

I walked him through the plan of salvation. He asked questions and then he told me that he needed time to think. I asked if I could pray for him and as I prayed, he began to sob harder than I have ever seen anyone cry. Tears literally dripped in a stream from his face.

I gave him my phone number and told him to call and let me know how he was doing. He talked to me the next day.

“Last night,” he said, “I was washing my clothes and a pastor was there doing his laundry as well. We talked for three hours and I decided to surrender my life to Jesus Christ.”

It’s amazing how God puts people in the right place at the right time to share His love. God still changes lives!

My Daddy Came

A while back we were leading a VBS at a country church. On the final evening, a tall man walked through the doors. Even though his wife and daughter came to church regularly, he rarely came with them. But on this night, his little girl had tugged on his heart to attend. She had heard us say that we were going to get inside a 6-foot balloon for “family night” and she wanted her daddy to be there to see it.

“My daddy came,” she told me before the service started. I walked over and shook his hand and could tell that it didn’t seem that he really wanted to be there. But he had come because she had invited him.

As we used the 6-foot balloon, we shared the Gospel. We spoke about God’s love, how our sin separates us from Him, and how God can save anyone who is willing to receive Him.

At the end of the church service, this tall, rough-looking man turned to his wife and said, “I’m never coming back here again.” He stormed out of the church and sped off in his pickup.

I remember seeing the wife and the pastor’s wife praying and crying on the front pew of the church. The wife and daughter waited for about an hour before going home. She wanted to give him time to “cool off.”

When she arrived home, his pickup was in the driveway but he wasn’t in the living room. She opened the bedroom door. There he was. She could tell that he had been crying.

“I’m sorry,” he said. “But when I heard them say that God could forgive anyone, it made me mad because I knew that God could never forgive me.”

Then he continued to explain how he had come home, gone in the bedroom, and in anger, he had begun telling God all the reasons why he could never be forgiven, all the reasons why God could never love Him.

“Suddenly,” he said, “I found myself on my knees. It was like there was a presence in the room that I had never felt before. I found myself telling God that if he would take me, I would come. I don’t know how to explain it, but God saved me tonight.”

“I Don’t Need This Anymore”

A number of years ago, I stood outside an old, leaning house. Years of neglect marked the small place. There was trash strewn across the front yard and it was squished along of row of other inner-city homes. Across the street was an abandoned field with chest-tall grass and I could hear dogs barking all around. Standing next to a pile of beer cans on the front porch, I gently knocked on the door. When it opened, my visitation partner and I saw one of the biggest men I’ve ever seen. He was taller than the door frame and his shadow filled the sides. He invited us inside and we stepped forward to see him in the light. He was muscle from head to toe, wearing only gray shorts, and as he closed the door, he began to make fists. I had spoken to him earlier on the phone and he had been expecting us but he suddenly became angry. Muscles grew across his body as he stiffened. He raised his fists to his head and everything inside me screamed, “Get out of here. He’s going to kill you!” But then he turned and leaned on the wall.

“I hate my life,” he said as tears streamed down his face.

“Kenny,” I said, “Let’s sit down and talk.”

I sat in the middle on the couch, sandwiched between this giant of a man and my friend who immediately began sharing Jesus with him. This man was a ex-convict, just recently out of prison but already back in a world of hurt and trouble. He never told us what he had done to spend so many years in jail, only that if he told us, “you would want to leave this place and never talk to me again.”

I watched this man argue that God could never forgive him and then soften as the Holy Spirit brought conviction and truth. At last, I watch as he bowed his head and prayed one of the most simply but powerful prayers I’ve ever heard, “God, I got nothing to give you but if you’ll take me, I’ll come. Amen.”

He looked up. For the first time, a smile filled his face. His eyes, that had looked so dead, now looked so alive. God had saved him!

Moments later, as we continued talking about his new life in Christ, he stood up and grabbed something from the coffee table. We followed to the kitchen as he lifted a beer can and drained it down the sink. “I don’t need this anymore.”

God changes lives. Pray for us as we seek to reach those who normally wouldn’t come to church.
