Open your door.
Toss some Jesus candy to people.
Start a conversation.
Invite them to church.
Pray over the candy before you hand it out.
For real. Not even joking.
Like a prayer walk
only pray blessings for the people
who will blow bubbles with the bubble gum you give out.
Print a scripture and tape it
to each piece of candy.
We are to go all over the world
to make disciples
and that is hard to do
when the door is locked.
People know that many Christians are famous for
sharing everything we’re AGAINST
but we’re not as famous for sharing Jesus the way we should.
It’s like this.
Sometimes we throw stones
at the adulteress
instead of being aware of
our own secret sin.
If we show her love, REAL TRUE love,
the kind of love she’s longing for
with all her heart,
just maybe she’ll want more of that
instead of the counterfeit romance that people offer her.
There is ONE night out
of the whole entire long year
that people flood the streets,
MAKE EYE CONTACT,
and say “Hello”
without thinking it’s awkward.
THIS evening is NOT the time to close the door.
The neighbors you pray about knowing Christ
all year long
God is bringing TO you
but the opportunity to invite them to know
more about Jesus
is missed because you don’t want
anyone to think you’re “celebrating” Halloween.
Opening your door and handing out candy on Halloween
does not mean you’re celebrating evil spirits
any more than going to a funeral
at a graveside service does.
This year my Mad Hattress, my Dear Fawn, my husband and I
will be loving on people however God leads us,
with lights on, doors open,
and some Jesus candy to share.
Be “that guy” and hand out Bibles if you want to
because you never know who needs one
but please don’t miss this opportunity
to love on and bless your neighbors.
Start a conversation.
Share Jesus with people
especially on Halloween
when sidewalks are covered with people
who are dying to know Him.
Be safe. Be blessed and Happy Halloween.
[Note: Do not send me hate mail
because I see a great outreach opportunity
and feel led to share about it.
I get it.
Some will be upset.
Some are always upset.
But someone may get to know Christ
because of open doors on Halloween
and I don’t want anyone
to miss any opportunity to share Him.]
