“I Want to Witness, But What Do I Say when Camping?”
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 while camping. 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.
Birds – When I am poor & needy, the birds remind me of God’s love for me. Matt. 6:26 says: “They (the birds) do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your Heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?”…Do you know how much Jesus loves you too? …Have you made Him your Lord and Savior?
Camping – When I think about bears or snakes around here, it reminds me of Psalm 34:7 that says, “the angel of the Lord encamps around those that fear Him and delivers them.” So God’s divine protection is only for those who fear Him or know Jesus as Lord…So is Jesus your Lord? If not, let’s pray right now before it gets dark.
Grass or Flowers – These wilted flowers remind me of Isaiah 40:8: “The grass withers, the flowers fade, but the Word of our God will stand forever.” Circumstances & people change, but God never changes...The best change of all is receiving Jesus as your Lord and Savior.
Fire - The campfire reminds me of Acts 2:2: “Suddenly a sound from heaven came as of a mighty rushing wind and there appeared to them cloven tongues like as of fire and it sat upon each of them and they were all filled with the Holy Ghost and began to speak with other tongues as the Spirit gave them utterance.” Would any one like prayer to receive your prayer language?
Firefly – That firefly reminds me of Christians who “shine their light” for Jesus through witnessing and doing good works…so have you become a firefly yet?
Mountain - That mountain, it reminds me of the heart-breaking trials that people experience in their lives, but God’s love is so great, He can lift you up over any problem in your life. In God’s eyes, the biggest mountain was mankind’s sin that separated us all from God, but God removed this mountain when He sent Son Jesus Christ who shed His blood and died on the cross for our sins so that those that we could have eternal life…So is Jesus your Lord? Mark 11:23
River – That River reminds me of getting filled with the spirit: “out of your belly will flow rivers of living water.” I remember the first time I prayed in tongues… Have you ever been baptized in the Holy Spirit? John 7:38
Rock – This rock reminds me Psalm 18:2: “The Lord is my Rock, my fortress, my strength, in Whom I will trust.” … So have you ever made Jesus your Rock?
Tent – This tent reminds me of how Abraham lived in tents for years as he walked by faith with God, which really pleased God, so he became the father of many nations (Gen. 17:5)…So have you ever put your faith in God?
Wilderness – As I walk through this wilderness, it reminds me of John the Baptist who cried out in the wilderness before Jesus Christ came: “Prepare the way of the Lord; make His paths straight and the rough places smooth.” I know that Jesus is coming again…If He should come today would you be ready to meet Him? Isaiah 40:5
Salvation 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.”
