Day 29: The Evangelism Challenge (The Man on the Train)

19 And for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel,
20 For which I am an ambassador in bonds: that therein I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.

— Ephesians 6:19-20

Today I witnessed to someone on the train. And that for me, was quite difficult.

I’m not one to speak on the train. I mean, I’m a Londoner – we don’t do train conversations with strangers….

But as I was on my way home, the carriage became more and more empty, until it was just myself and a young guy sitting opposite me.

He had on sunglasses which were saying “don’t look at

me”
He had on headphones which were saying “don’t speak to me”

I gulped.

I already felt the desire to give him a tract. I looked around the carriage (to no one, I might add, since we were alone) and I edged myself a little off my seat and a little closer to him.

When I spoke, he smiled and took off his sunglasses. In terms of breaking the ice, I felt the need to explain that I don’t usually speak to people on the train but I really felt to give him this tract. He smiled. I handed it to him and told him to read it once he gets home, as he’ll find it very interesting….

One of the more relaxed witnessing moments, but I was still so nervous.
I pray for more boldness in Jesus name AMEN.
