“I Want to Witness, But What Do I Say with Flowers?”
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
Brown-Eyed Susan – This flower reminds me of my friend Susan who has brown eyes and often asks people: “Do you know how much Jesus loves you?” She witnesses to the lost a lot and has a website called: www.traintracts.com. …Have you ever received Jesus as your Lord?
Dogwood Tree Flowers– I heard that the dogwood tree was once firm and strong, like an oak tree, so it was chosen to be the timber for Jesus Christ’s cross where He died. The dogwood was greatly distressed for being used for such a cruel purpose. So Jesus had mercy on the dogwood tree and said: “Because of your pity for My suffering, never again shall you grow large enough to be used as a cross. Now your blossoms shall bloom in the shape of a cross with two long and short petals and in the center of the outer edge of each petal there will be nail prints, brown with rust and stained with red. In the center will be a crown of thorns.” As I look at God’s mercy on the dogwood tree, have you ever prayed to receive the mercy of Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior?
Impatiens –As I look at these flowers, it reminds me to not be impatient because God is so very patient with us. He is patiently waiting for multitudes of people to receive Jesus Christ as their Lord and bloom into Christians.Lily –Oh how I love lilies! Lilies remind me of that verse in Song of Solomon 2:1 that says that Jesus Christ is the lily of the valley. He is the bright spot during the trials and tribulations of life when we feel so down, like we are in a valley. Lilies also surround the altar at church during Easter-time to celebrate the Resurrection of Jesus Christ. ….Have you ever prayed to receive Jesus Christ as your Lord?
Poinsettias – I love these pretty poinsettia plants that are used to decorate the altars at church during Christmas time. The red and white ones are so pretty. Do you ever see them there? Do you go to a church? Would you like to come to mine?
Roses –I love roses because they remind me of Jesus. In the Bible in Song of Solomon 2:1 He is described as the Rose of Sharon Jesus Christ is the lovely rose between the ugly thorns of sin, sickness and sorrow. Our sins separate us from God, but when Jesus Christ died on the cross, His blood paid the price for our sins and reconciled us to God. When we pray to receive Him as Lord and Savior, we become His born-again children like these smaller tea roses… Have you received Jesus as your Lord and Savior?
Wilted Flowers – As I watch these flowers wilt in this vase, this scripture in Isaiah comforts me: “The grass withers, the flowers fade, but the Word of our God will stand forever.” With so many things changing all the time, I am so thankful that the Word of God never changes. He is the same yesterday, today and forever….So do you need a change? Would you like to pray and receive Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior? Isaiah 40:8Salvation 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.”
