Gospel Opportunities

I have often said that one of the privileges of being a minister is that it is easy to share the gospel. In fact, people expect you to do it. I mean one on one, apart from public preaching. The opportunities, too, are the best. It is people who come knowing they are in deep trouble, already tormented by sin, coming in great fear, already seeking answers. But I find, too, that when I am "not wearing my ministerial hat", it isn't too hard either, simply because I find myself in situations where it isn't. OBSERVATION: And maybe that offers a clue as to how one may witness. I myself balk at the thought, as many do, that one must witness. The Lord on one occasion stated it simply as a matter of fact: "You shall be my witnesses."
