It was the afternoon after the dramatic early morning car chase that ended up in our city by our ministry the other day. As I pulled into our parking lot, I was surprised to see a television van parked nearby. I walked over and spoke to the man who was sitting in his high-tech broadcasting studio and asked, “Are you still here because of this morning’s car chase?” When he said he was, I said that I had some video clips if he wanted it. No charge of course.
He was grateful, but said he had everything he needed, including really good helicopter footage.
I then handed him one of our YouTube cards (with my sunglasses-wearing dog on it) and said, “I ask people if they think there’s an afterlife. Do you think there’s an afterlife?” He said, “That’s an interesting question. I was brought up a Catholic, and I do think there is life after death,” but he wasn’t completely sure. He couldn’t do an interview, so I gave him a couple of gift cards—for which he was very grateful.
“I often hear people say, ‘I wish I could reach out to the lost. I get so nervous. I don’t really have much opportunity anyway because of Covid.’ I tell them to simply share our YouTube channel.”
I went to my car, grabbed a copy of The Bible’s Four Gospels, and a couple more gift cards for the rest of his family. However, I felt bad interrupting him a second time. This was because he was closely watching something on his screen. I presumed it was to do with the car chase. But it wasn’t. It was one of our viral witnessing clips titled, “He Didn’t Care About God…but was in Tears After Hearing This.” I was blown away that he had so quickly gone to our channel. He was delighted with the extra cards and the copy of The Bible’s Four Gospels.
I often hear people say, “I wish I could reach out to the lost. I get so nervous. I don’t really have much opportunity anyway because of Covid.” I tell them to simply share our YouTube channel. Pick out a witnessing interview you think would be appropriate (there are over 2,000), and send it all over the Internet. You could say something like, ”I’d love to know your thoughts on this,” and send the link. With the help of God, by doing that daily, you may change someone’s location for eternity.
