If you want to break fear of man, there is no better way than to go knock on someone’s door and be ready in season or not to present Jesus to them. We have been getting addicted to obeying Jesus no matter how we feel, or what is en vogue. Simple obedience these past two weeks has been changing a city.
How do you knock on strangers doors and not be seen as another salesman or weird religious person wasting their precious time?
Because we have a secret weapon Jesus himself to validate this truth. And he is really good at convincing people through the power of his spirit that he came to save the world not condemn it.
Read some RADICAL testimonies from the last two weeks below!
“We were going door to door with Cameron and Tyler and we came to this house with two boys playing outside. One was sitting on the porch and the other was playing basketball. We approached them and struck up a conversation with them—we asked them how they were doing and eventually led the conversation into an explanation of the Gospel.
We each got to tell them about how Jesus had come into our lives and everything that he has done in our lives and the blessings he’s graced us with.
I personally got to touch on how even though I’ve had some major losses in my life, there is still just something in me that gives me peace and security. I know whose I am—I know who I belong to. When we were explaining the Gospel we also mentioned some of the miracles that Jesus did when he was on earth, we asked the who kids what they thought of it and they said, ‘it sounds really supernatural!’ and we said, ‘it is!’
Then Tyler asked a deep question: he asked, ‘do you know anyone that would die for you?’ They responded no, and we said, ‘Jesus did that for you—and he wants to have a personal relationship with you.’
After that we asked them if they wanted to accept Jesus into their lives and they said ‘yes!’ We prayed with each of them and were able to bless both of them with a Bible, a Jesus Film connection card.” – Allison (Current Outreach DTS student)
God always challenges us in what He can do. It never is out of our own strength, but it is God who moves and speaks in such loud ways. Read this testimony about a C-R-A-Z-Y word of knowledge through one of our DTS students during door to door ministry. This should be our ‘normal’.
“A couple of girls and I went door to door asking people if they needed prayer and giving them Jesus Films if they were interested in it. We came to this one door and this older lady answered it who spoke broken English. I got to show her the film and she was VERY excited to see that it was in Mandarin. She believed in some sort of God but wasn’t sure who to follow yet.
Right before she closed the door, I felt led to ask her if she had a brother. I wasn’t sure why God showed me this information about the woman standing in front of me but I just went for it.
She hesitated and then said she had a brother who died a couple of years ago. Clearly this woman was still heartbroken about it and her eyes were tearing up. I got to encourage her that God sees her family and wants to bring healing to her and I got to pray for her! She was so joyous and I could tell that something had shifted and that she might just give her life to Jesus that day!” – Olivia (Current Outreach DTS student)
