Divine Platform

My home is a divine platform. My husband is Muslim and my adopted daughter is an atheist. I get to share Jesus with them frequently at home and it is great training for how to talk to people who’s beliefs are vastly different from your own.

I’ve found that the dog park is a great place to meet people and start conversations. This park especially has lots of people who stay for quite a while. I have met other Christians there and heard about their ministries. I met a man who used to be pastor and now is believe all roads lead to God. I also formed a friendship with a young woman who grew up in the Orthodox church but has past church hurt. We have been meeting up and I have gotten to continue our conversations about Jesus and share how sorry I am for her past experience.

Faith Discussion with fellow believer (client co-worker) aligned with Genesis 15 sermon hours earlier. God can handle all doubts!

Had a great conversation at work today! I have a new Muslim coworker (as of last week), and I was talking to him and two of my (nominally Christian) coworkers. Somehow we got on the topic of his halal diet (my coworkers were unfamiliar with it and were asking), and we got into a long discussion about the Bible vs the Quran, how we each pray, what each of our end time prophecies are, how Muslims get to heaven vs how Christians do. My Christian coworkers still seem to think I’m surely “Christian enough” to get to heaven so I was able to re-emphasize how much I actually don’t deserve to go to heaven and that I need Jesus. We even talked about what the Quran says about Jesus vs what the Bible says! This conversation started right before lunch and lasted til we realized it was 1 p.m. and should probably eat something/get to work. Everyone was cool with the conversation and all asking questions. I’m hoping this opens the door to future conversations but am seeking wisdom from God in not overdoing it because I’m so excited about this!

I popped in the grocery store last night for baby carrots. It was late, and the store would be closing soon. When I got to the checkout the cashier was immediately very friendly. I got the impression he really just wanted to talk. For once, I wasn’t in a hurry, and there was no one waiting in line behind me, so I made the conscious decision to settle in, listen, and respond.

His name was […], and he’s originally from Israel. We talked briefly about the war going on both there and Ukraine. He asked me about my family, and was surprised when I said we’d been married 15 years but our daughter was only 2 years old. I told him that we thought we couldn’t have children, but God gave us a miracle. He gave a big smile and said congratulations. He told me about his nephew who is a little over a year old and is teething. As I walked away, he said he hoped that I would bring my daughter next time so he could meet her. It was a really sweet chat, and I only wish I had thought to offer to pray for him before I left.”

Here is the reply I got from the person I had talked to about Jesus and recommended the book Jesus Calling…her father is very depressed and contemplating suicide:

“Good morning Marc,

It was certainly a pleasure meeting you as well. I left our conversation feeling more empowered and determined.

I appreciate you sharing your story and also recommending that book.

My father was receptive and appreciates the encouraging words. He seems to be in better spirits today so I’m hoping it continues.

I will certainly keep you posted!

Stay Encouraged!”

A friend and I got to visit with an Afghan family we recently became friends with. As we spent time together, the nine year old daughter started expressing questions about Jesus and how she could believe in Him. We got to read Isaiah 53 together in their language, and they could identify that this chapter was speaking about Jesus, and talked about how this prophecy was written hundreds of years before Jesus was born and He fulfilled it!

I was at a work event at a Rough Riders game and struck up a conversation with a coworker about our summer travel including the missions trip to London. That turned into a 30 min conversation about faith and joy and the brokenness in this world and finally he shared that he is agnostic and how he came to that conclusion. It was a good seed sowing conversation and I offered to be there to talk in the future if he had questions about faith or to pray for him or his students. Excited to pray for my coworker this year and see God work in his life!

A homeless man […] frequents the DTS library and I have been seeking an opportunity to converse with him for a few weeks. Today I saw the opportunity and took it. I shared my story with [him] and presented the Gospel within my story. We talked for a good thirty minutes. When I finished and asked him if he wanted to receive Christ as his Savior, he said he had a lot to think about, but the door of opportunity is still open. Please keep [this man] in your prayers.
