My experience with the Good Soil evangelism tools has been exciting. God used His Word, presented chronologically to bring my dear friend to Christ and encourage another. My friend had a deep desire to know and understand the Bible as a whole, and using this tool, I was able to help her fit all the pieces together and see the one main theme woven throughout Scripture. She desperately wanted to know that she was a child of God, and when she came to understand all that God did to show His love to her and rescue her from sin, she was overwhelmed and with a thankful heart accepted Christ as her Savior. Today she speaks of the freedom she has found in Christ and how she is in awe that He would love her so much.
Both of my friends have found the message of the gospel to be comforting during times of great distress in their lives. As for me, my heart is overflowing with joy as I have had a front row seat on what God is doing through His Word and His Spirit in the lives of my friends. It has encouraged my heart that the same God who parted the Red Sea and rose from the dead is still working in my life and my friends today. “For I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God that brings salvation to everyone who believes.” Romans 1:16 (NIV)
