Lauren’s church is planning a Bible prophecy seminar in two weeks. Her Sabbath School teacher has encouraged students to invite their friends. Lauren wants to reach out to someone but feels uncertain. Have you ever felt like that? What would you do?
One day at the public school she attends Lauren gets up the courage to talk during lunchtime to her friend Jasmine and invite her to the seminar. Jasmine bursts into laughter and exclaims, “No. I’m definitely not interested!” and then quickly changes the conversation to last night’s episode of the TV show she watched. Lauren feels her face blush and is embarrassed. What would you have done? How do you share Jesus when you are being ridiculed? Lauren has decided to avoid embarrassment and not invite anyone else to the seminar. Just then she finds her friend Katie in the library studying. Katie mentions how sad and confused she feels about the disasters and violence around the world. Lauren feels prompted to invite her to the Bible prophecy seminar, as it could help her understand what’s going on in the world in light of the great controversy between good and evil. Katie says that she is interested and accepts the invitation. Imagine Lauren’s joy! She is thrilled that she had the courage to invite someone else to the seminar. Has something like this ever happened to you?
