What method of evangelism did you use and how did you start the conversation? I used the Friendship method; I was drawn to that method because of the person in which I choose to witness to. My son was not my first choice, but it happen Just as it was supposed to. I questioned the friendship method at first, but I came to understand friendship was Just a metaphor for friends, family, stranger, and anyone else whom could fit into that category. I picked my son, because I felt he was he right person at that moment to witness to.He and I were engaged in a conversation about angel. Not the angel who are in Heaven, but the angel which there was a TV show that he and I use to love to watch once upon a time.

Anyway, he was watching the DVD of the show In his room. There was a part that triggered his curiosity, so he came to ask me a question about It. I knew that was my opportunity to witness to him since he was already on the page about demons. I asked my son what if all of that was true about what was going on in the show, he said some of it is true. I asked him what part he thinks is true, he responded.The part when angel lost his soul. I asked him if angel lost his soul for real what would happen.
He said they showed what would happen on the show, angel became a beast named Angels. After that answer, I asked him, can I share something with you, he said share what? How good God is. “God is a good God; He is always there for you and me. He will give you everything your heart desire, all you have to do is ask. All he asks for in return is your love and devotion to him and only him. He said, you always ask me that. Then, I seed him do he believe Jesus died on the cross for our sins, he answered yes.
Do you ever think about Glenn your life to the Lord? I began to tell him; remember when I told you I received Christ as my savior? It was a life changing experience for me; all kinds of doors have open for me. God can do the same for you if you are willing to give Him a chance. Step out on faith, because faith comes from what is heard and what is heard comes by the preaching of God. It depends on how you hear. Faith comes by hearing only if you have the right attitude. I told my son you can confess our sins right her right now.I also told him, I love the Lord and I can and will praise him anywhere, because he is that good to me.
PART TWO – What was the reaction (questions/comments/statements) of the unbeliever? My son reaction to what I said to him was like always, he gave me all the reasons why he could not totally commit to God at this time. One thing he said really shocked me because he never said It before. He began to say, I am saved. I talk to God all the time not only to ask for things, but to talk to him Just to see how he Is doing and whether or not I am making he right decision about things.I told my son that Is good, but that does not make you save. You have to go though the Son in order to see the Father. He knew what he is still saved, he Just does not have the Baptism of the Holy Spirit.
Right now he feels he is too young to have the full package. I told him you are never too young to serve God. If He comes back today you will be lost. You are old enough now that you carry your own sins. I cannot go for you. You have to do that all by yourself. He said he knows that too.
He is not ready to commit his life at this time.
