I am thinking about the Man from George Street (Frank Jenner) from the Youtube video entitled, "I got off at George Street". (You can do a search for the video and several choices will come up). There are actually two different videos called by the same name and one of them is authentic. The other one is based on the story but is embellished quite a bit! This man, Frank Jenner, went down to George Street in Sydney, Australia, every day for many years. He gave out tracts to people and shared the Gospel with some of them. Many of them took the tracts and became disturbed because they were now aware of the fact that if they died in their sins, they would go to hell forever. After the encounter with Frank Jenner, those who took the message to heart went to a pastor or friend to ask them more questions about the Gospel and their relationship to God. Many were brought to Christ that way. Some of these people started ministries. Frank Jenner never realized how many people he ended up ministering to when he gave the tracts out during his lifetime!
In a similar way, we here in America can so the same thing. What if we gave tracts out to people and talked to people who have questions about their salvation? If we all we open to sharing the Gospel with people, what would our communities look like ten years from now? Twenty years? Fifty years? What if I gave a tract to somebody tomorrow, and a couple of months later another person gives them a tract, or gives an open air message in which that person hears the Gospel again? Maybe he will sit down and read a Gideon Bible while staying at a motel, then perhaps he will move into a neighborhood where true Christians live? What if we all did our little part in promoting the Gospel, whether it be by giving out a tract, or sharing the Gospel in person or on the phone with a salesperson? There are so many ways to promote the Gospel. What does God want us to do? Let's ask God to give us hearts that will love the Gospel ourselves, and hearts that will have compassion for lost people. What if we did this and revival came to America? Let's be faithful in seeking God's heart in this.
"But when he saw the multitudes, he was moved with compassion on them, because they fainted, and were scattered abroad, as sheep having no shepherd.
Then he said to his disciples, The harvest truly is plenteous, but the labourers are few;
Pray therefore that the Lord of the harvest, will send forth labourers into his harvest."
