Today I had jury service. I knew this would afford opportunity for discussions with people just waiting around, so I was scared. I asked the Lord to guide me and make it clear. WOW, He sure did!
I gave a million to the cafe cashier and said "It has the million dollar question on the back - will you go to heaven when you die?". Her face changed to very serious and she looked at me and said "Do we?" I said - "Read what it says." Didn't have any more opportunity to talk, because she had customers coming, but maybe she'll consider it.
I was outside the jury room in the hall and noticed a very scared looking young lady. It turned out to be a 19 year old girl and this was her first time and she had no idea what was going on and what she was to do. So I befriended her and gave her some education about the court & jury system. She asked if she could tag along with me. So we sat down and I explained a little more and gave her a bill also. She was very interested in what it had to say. Her name is Amber - pray for her.
Amber and I "happened" to sit next to a lady named Tanya. She noticed I knew what I was talking about and asked if I could help her with the jury thing too. I explained a little, then gave her a bill & told her what it was. This was VERY exciting, because she said someone gave her a "Christian Message" at the doctor's office also, and she was interested. I think the Lord is after her! About that point, they called up both our groups and said we were to be dismissed. So no more discussion. But I gave Tanya a Sunday School Department business card, and hopefully she will come or call with questions.
The moral of the story - just be ready, and the Lord will certainly use you!!
