bits from bob....
My friend told me about his barber's resolve to mention God to every customer entering his shop. As he prepared to shave one fellow, he felt compelled to say something to him about his soul. He hesitated, afraid to raise the issue. After such fretting for a few moments as he skillfully wielded the razor, he finally boomed out in his best bass voice, "Are you prepared to die?"
As the blood drained from the customer's face, he jumped from the chair and shouted back, "Not if I can help it!"
The barber defeated himself. He was so fearful that he communicated only fear. His timing was less than the best. He utterly failed to share the Savior.
Inviting others to Bible School or worship often makes us apprehensive. We are afraid to raise the issue. I doubt we ever are completely rid of the fear, but consider these "fear stoppers."
The list could be continued but perhaps these ideas will start your own creative juices flowing. Remember the barber. Tell your friends the story--then invite them.
