A friend of mine stopped by today and noticed one of the pocket testaments sitting on the coffee table. He asked me if it had anything to do with nascar since it had the checkered flag on the cover. I took that as an opening for witnessing. I told him that God is about everything including NASCAR. He said that he did notice that an opening prayer before the races was given, but he figured it was just done due to tradition. I told him that God is and should always be part of everybody's daily tradition. Well this conversation went on for a couple of hours as we took turns reading from the pocket testament aloud. After we finished reading a few chapters, my friend surprised me by asking if I can help him accept God into his life. I told him yes, but then I pointed out that he actually started the process himself by asking about the pocket testament. He chuckled and agreed. After that, we both prayed together and my friend accepted Jesus as his one true Messiah. He will be joining us this sunday for church.... Thank you for giving us all this powerful tool to be used with our witnessing!
