Trick or Treat: Sharing Jesus


This afternoon Jacob and I got busy getting ready for trick or treaters tomorrow night.  I'm not sure if we'll have any or how many we'll have, but we got ready, just in case.  I've spoken a lot about our pastor's series right now on Razing Hell, and I just feel the Holy Spirit prompting me to really be a light....to really start perking up and being aware of what I can do.  

We had gone to New York City on a missions trip a couple of summers ago, and we had a bunch of tracts left over, really cool kids' tracts that we'd stocked up on for the trip.  Since candy is so expensive, I bought one big bag.  Then we went to the Dollar Shop and got their cute little Halloween treat bags for $1 a bunch.  While Jacob was filling some of the bags with candy and tracts, I made sugar cookies in the shapes of pumpkins, cats, bats, and ghosts....then I iced them (and we ate a few along the way:)).

Then we filled the leftover bags with a cookie and tract in each one.  All afternoon Jacob said how much fun he was having.  He had a job, and he went right to town on it.  I explained to him how we were sharing Jesus with the kids who came to get candy, and it was just neat to see him get so into it.  I don't know if we'll have enough, but we have a box full of bags ready to go.  I share all this, not to hype ourselves up, but to encourage you to think about how you can reach your trick or treaters tomorrow night.  It's time for us parents to start showing our kids what being a light really means....it's time to perk up, to wake up, and to reach out.....
