We give away glow stick necklaces to people to encourage them to take the "good person test." This is the primary tool that we use to get to the gospel of Jesus Christ. The good person test walks a person through several of the 10 Commandments showing them that they are not good compared to God's standards. We offer people a glow-stick necklace if they can prove that they are a good person (of course we know that they aren't good enough).
After taking a person through the test, we advised them that like God, we will show them grace by giving them the necklace even though they don't deserve it. Just like God gives us Grace in that we get salvation, even though we don't deserve it.
I had the pleasure of meeting Brian and his son on Mill Ave. He stated that he was a Christian but that when it came to sharing his faith, the Gospel, with others he took a less direct approach. That is, he lived his life in a way that people would see Jesus in him. He said he was "timid" when it came to sharing his faith.
Two thoughts on that… 1) Of course we should live our lives in a way that others would see "Jesus in us," but Jesus said to go into all the world and "PREACH" the gospel to every living creature… it seems only reasonable that we could preach the gospel to humans that are around us.
2) The fact the he was timid to share the Gospel also makes sense. I would be timid to share the Gospel if I didn't know how. But I do, and moreover I've made it a goal to teach other Christians to do the same. There are a couple of Evangelism Seminars coming up soon. One I am helping with, and the other I am putting on. If you're interested, keep an eye on this blog or my Facebook posts. This seminar is free… and it will change the way you think about evangelism for good.
