Serving evangelism

I have been thinking on this for a couple of days. I was at work the other night and these two girls that were serving were trying to get me to talk to them. They are both flirty girls and I don’t usually talk to flirty girls, because they annoy me. So they kept trying to get me to talk to them and told me that we were going to hang out and that they were going to call me and such. Finally I decided that I was going to talk to them if they bugged me again and ask them where they are going to go when they die. As the night went on I did not get the opportunity. So I knew that they would try to keep this up and decided that if they did I would ask them the question. So a couple days later I was getting ready to wash dishes and my boss came in and asked if I would serve supper and then they would bring in someone to wash dishes. So I served supper and can you guess who worked with me that night? That’s right one of the flirty girls. So as we were bussing tables after supper she was trying to get me to talk to her and so I said ok I will talk to you and I asked her the question. She being stunned that I would ask her that and stunned that I was a Christian asked me if I was seriously asking her that question. I said of course I am serious, she told me that she wanted to go to heaven but she thought that she might go to hell and then asked me where I thought she was going. I told her that if she did not believe on Jesus Christ then she was going to hell and repent of her sins. She was stunned again. She then asked me where I was going and I told her that I was going to heaven. Suddenly she got mad at me and said, “So you are saying that because I gave birth to my kid I am going to hell?” She obviously knew that sex outside of marriage was wrong and I said no. I said it is because you have sinned and you do not believed in Jesus Christ. She told me that she did not want to talk to me anymore. She was swearing all night long. She was definitely convicted and mad. So as the night went on I asked the Lord for one more chance to talk to her and he gave it to me. She said do you always make people this mad (in a little more colorful words). I told her only if they were convicted about their sin and she really got mad after that. At the very end of the night she told me that she really wanted to say a lot of things to me and I told her that it wouldn’t have been the first time. And that was it. I found out the next day that she had texted and called a bunch of her friends and told them that a kid told her that she was going to hell because she had a baby. Wow the way people want to justify themselves by making what other people say look absurd. I hope that every time this girl sees me she will be tormented by the question of where she is going when she dies, until she finally comes to know Jesus Christ as her Savior. It seems like a mean thing to hope for but in reality it is because this girl needs the Lord. The Holy Spirit is working on her and I have planted a seed. It’s amazing to see how the Lord allowed me to serve that night so that I could talk to that girl. What an amazing God we have. I like how these verses put it.

Psa 37:23 The steps of a man are established by the LORD, And He delights in his way.
Psa 37:24 When he falls, he will not be hurled headlong, Because the LORD is the One who holds his hand.

God set all of this up before hand so that I could talk to this girl and I am so glad He did. It is amazing to watch how He uses unbelievers and they don’t even know it. God is so amazing!
