"I Want to Witness, But What Do I Say at a Zoo?"
The hardest part about witnessing is the transition from an everyday conversation onto the Gospel track. One way to do 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 transition 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.
Calf - That calf reminds me of when the Israelites sinned against God by worshipping a golden calf. The Lord was so angry and jealous that He wanted to destroy them, but Moses interceded and prayed, so God relented. Ex. 32:14. Many people worship idols today (to much sports or TV), but if you give your heart to God as your first love, you will have eternal life….Would you like to pray?
Camel– As I look at that camel it reminds me of what Jesus said, “It is easier for a camel to go through a needle’s eye, than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.” I guess that is because they trust in their wealth for salvation instead of trusting in Jesus Christ alone.…..So have you ever prayed to receive Him as your Lord and Savior? Luke 18:24-25
Deer – As I look at that deer, it reminds me of that Psalm 42:1 “As the deer panteth for the water, so my soul runneth after Thee, O God.”…I love the Lord and I long to be with Him just like that deer pants for the water because I know that He loves me and He is so faithful. He will never let you down. He loves you too….Do you know Him as your Lord?
Dove –That dove reminds me of when the Holy Ghost descended like a dove upon Jesus, and voice from heaven said, “Thou art my beloved Son; in thee I Am well pleased.”…So is Jesus your Lord?
Lamb – As I look at that cute lamb, it reminds me of what John the Baptist said about Jesus Christ in John 1:36: “Behold the Lamb of God!”…So is He in your heart?Lion– Seeing that lion reminds me of what the Bible says in Prov. 28:1 that the righteous are as bold as a lion. The spirit of God on the inside of Christians gives us the power and the authority through our Lord Jesus Christ to command demons and darkness to leave us alone. Would you like to have that same power? It all begins with receiving Jesus as your Lord and Savior…. Would you like to pray? Lu. 10:19
Zebra – Seeing those stripes on that zebra’s back reminds me of the red stripes of blood on Jesus’ back after the Roman soldiers whipped Him. It says in 1 Peter 2:24 that “By His stripes we were healed.” And because Jesus died on the cross for our sins, those who believe and receive Him as Lord and Savior shall be saved from hell and will go to heaven. …So are you going to heaven?
Zoo - I love going to the zoo. It reminds me of Noah’s ark. I am so thankful for Noah because if it weren’t for him, we would not have this zoo here today because we would have no animals at all. But Noah obeyed God. He built the ark and put all of the animals and his family on it so that they would survive the massive flood that God brought upon the earth to judge it for man’s sin. It is so important to obey God and walk in His will. God’s will is for all people to receive Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior so that they can go to heaven. ….Is Jesus Christ your Lord? Would you like to pray to receive Him as your Savior? Gen. 9:11-15
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.”
