As Christians, we are called by God to evangelize – to share our faith and win souls to Christ. We may invite people to church when we are out at the mall, the grocery store, gas station, hair salon or any other place that we go during the course of our day.
But there is one night each year when a stream of people will be coming to you – why not use it as an opportunity to share God’s love with them?
Halloween is a great time to get the message of the Cross out to children and parents! It doesn’t mean that you are “celebrating” Halloween…you don’t have to put out jack o’lanterns or decorate your shrubs with spider webs. You are taking advantage of an opportunity to let people know that Jesus loves them and that they can be saved from their sins – and they are coming to you to receive the message!
WHAT YOU CAN DO
There are several stores where you can buy pre-printed Christian cards or tracts to pass out, or you can design and print your own if you have that skill. Be sure to put a few pieces of candy with the card, so that the children will actually look at it!
In this world full of so much bad news, you can bring some joy and peace through sharing the Good News of who God is and how much He loves them. You can make a difference in the lives of those who come to your door, and their parents!
On Tuesday, October 31st, once you have your cards and your candy, turn on your porch light and get ready to plant some seeds that will make an eternal difference in someone’s life!
