“I Want to Witness, But What Do I Say at a Hardware Store?”
Many times the hardest part about witnessing is the transition from an everyday conversation onto the Gospel track. If you do not know how to do this, you will not be witnessing at all. One way to turn the conversation it is through relating the Gospel to objects around you like Jesus did many times in Matthew 13. These object evangelism icebreakers will train you how to turn conversations onto the Gospel track. Jesus is coming soon, so use loving boldness and be compassionate. Then be led by the Spirit using whatever method. You may prophesy or pray for healing, etc. To help pull them in, after the “…”, there is an invitation to be saved.
Electric saw – That saw reminds me of the grace of God. It is so much easier than a hand saw. It is the Holy Spirit that convicts me to cut off every branch or sinful thing in me that bears no fruit…So is Jesus your Lord?
Home Improvement – Taking my family to church every Sunday is the best “home improvement” that I ever made. As we all learn to forgive each other, embrace Christ’s love and the joy and peace of God, my home life has greatly improved…Does your family go to church?
Ladder – That ladder reminds me of Jacob’s ladder in the Bible when the angels went up and down on it. But you know, you can’t get to heaven through a ladder. You can only get there through receiving Jesus Christ as Lord.…So have you prayed to receive Him as your Lord?
Nails - When I look at those nails, it reminds me of how painful it must have been for Jesus Christ having those nails hammered into His hands and feet on the cross. He went through so much pain and suffering in shedding His blood for my sins. It makes me want to live a holy life that will please my God. Pleasing God all begins with receiving Jesus Christ as your Lord…Would you like pray? 1 Peter 1:19; 1 John 4:8-10
Paint –I like white paint the best. It reminds me of Isaiah 43:25 when God said, “I, even I Am He that blots out your sins for Mine own sake.” When I received Jesus Christ as my Savior, it’s like He painted a new white coat of paint over my sinful coat so that I could be reconciled to God and have eternal life.Snake or Auger –This auger that unclogs a toilet reminds me of how forgiving others can unclog a sinful heart and cleanses it so that it can receive God’s love and the Living Water of eternal life. Matt. 6:14; John 4:10
To Build, Count the Cost– In order to build anything, you must count the cost. That reminds me of building the Kingdom of God. It may cost you in different ways, but God is so worthy and His rewards and benefits are of eternal value.…So is Jesus your Lord?
Stone – That stone reminds me what Jesus said: “The stone the builders rejected has become the chief cornerstone; This is the Lord’s doing, and it is marvelous..” It is sad that many Jews rejected Jesus, but those who believe and receive Him as Lord and Savior will have eternal life in heaven. Would you like to pray to receive Him now as your Lord? Matt. 21:42; 1 Peter 5:6
Workmanship – Wow! That is beautiful workmanship. You sure do have some talent. It reminds me of Eph. 2:10 which says that “we are God’s own workmanship created in Christ Jesus” to do those good works which God predestined for us to do. Doing something great for God all begins with receiving Jesus as your Lord….So have you prayed to receive Him as Lord?
Wrench – As I use this wrench, it reminds me of how if I trust God, He can turn things around for me…Have you ever put your trust in the Lord? Rom. 8:28Salvation Prayer: “Father, I believe that Your Son Jesus Christ died on the cross for my sins and rose from the dead. I repent of my sins. Jesus, I ask You to forgive me and come into my heart and be my Lord and Savior. Fill me with the Holy Spirit. Thank You for saving me from hell and giving me eternal life in heaven, in Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.”
