There are a few interactions I’ve had when sharing the gospel on the streets that stick in my heart and mind. One such interaction occurred a few weeks ago. We were at a large bus terminal in the heart of our city where we frequent every weekend as part of an evangelism ministry. The busy bus station is a wonderful place to share the gospel since there are always people coming and going (and standing around).
We walked around handing out gospel tracts and speaking with some of the people standing around waiting for their bus to arrive. It can be a captive audience! As I made my way to the back side of the bus station I handed a tract to a young man and began a conversation with him. He asked me a few questions about the contents of the tract and that gave me an opportunity to begin sharing the good news of the gospel. He had a worried look on his face as I was telling him about Jesus and the judgment. He said with a genuinely concerned look, “I don’t know if I will be accepted by God.”
