Trade-in Witnessing

For all you gamers out there, here's a way to reach the lost without ever having to see them or even talk to them. I have done it several times but this is the first time that I have thought about sharing. I just traded in Fable 3 with a little "extra" for the next person who owns it. Here's what you do. The next time you trade in a game to your local GameStop, slip a gospel tract inside the game's instruction manual (having the manual will already give your tract credibility to the next guy because so many used games don't have them). The store employees rarely check inside the booklet ( if they do, you'll need to be ready to give an answer for the hope you have lol) so the person who purchases the game next will get the gospel message at God's appointed time. Of course you are not reaching mass amounts of people by doing this but at least one person at a time will get the good news. Make sure it is a biblical tract that has the bad news as well as the good news. After all, people need to know what they are being saved from in order to know what they are being saved to. It should include sin(God's Law-the 10 commandments), future judgment and punishment, Jesus' death and resurrection, repentance and faith. You can find great tracts at www.livingwaters.com and www.afterlifecatalog.com There are many ways to share your faith. Try this one next time you have some games to trade in. Your unwanted game may be a definite treasure to a lost gamer. If for some reason you are an unsaved gamer who has stumbled upon our site, click here to see why you need Jesus. God bless.

Philemon 1:6 (English Standard Version)

and I pray that the sharing of your faith may become effective for the full knowledge of every good thing that is in us for the sake of Christ.
