Witnessing Stories

Rodeo Crowd or Bernie Supporters?

IMG_9061 Last night some friends and I went downtown Cedar Rapids to pass out gospel tracts. We thought we would be giving them to people that were going to see a rodeo in the US Cellular Center. Little did we know that Bernie Sanders was also speaking downtown. We were thrilled to see hundreds of Bernie supporters walking down the sidewalk…now we had more people to give tracts to! They eagerly took the gospel IQ quizzes we were passing out. I think they may have thought we were part of their campaign. 🙂

IMG_9057 Shelby and Luke also did a great job sharing the gospel with some people protesting the rodeo. They seemed to think they were good enough to get to Heaven on their own. Yet, if this could be so, why did Jesus need to die? His death on the cross was unnecessary if we could get to Heaven by our good lives. Galatians 2:21 says “if righteousness comes through the Law, then Christ died needlessly.” I hope they remember this point.

  1. How neat and providential! Praise the Lord that this was going on. I know you were blessed to see this happen.

  2. Your blog has been an encouragement to me for some time. I love reading about the opportunities that God gives you to witness. Thank you for taking the time to share!

  3. Amen Marisha! I have really been encouraged my this Grace Notes and when you get to know Grace personally, she is really genuine. She is so sweet and a great example of a witness for Christ!

    Thank you Grace for doing this blog! I have enjoyed seeing the different opportunities you have had to witness. I will send you an email soon 🙂 Miss you!

  4. Thank you for your blog! I know you have probably done this before, but could you post some witnessing tools for Easter? It is coming up. And being in the season of Lent, there are a lot of people who are thinking about it.
