I was on my honeymoon in the Bahama’s when a man walked up to me and said, "Would you like to buy some cocaine? You can tell everyone how much you really enjoyed the Bahama’s."

After I said "No!" and got over the shock of that man’s boldness, I wondered how Jesus would have responded if someone came up to him selling drugs. Later that day, someone else came up to me selling drugs and that gave me another chance to share Jesus with them in a most creative way. After he told me that he had the "good-stuff", I asked him, "What have you got?" Once he said "Cocaine!", I said the following:

Is that all you have? I’m disappointed! I was hoping you would have something better than that. You see, I’ve got the real thing! What I have is all natural, pure and very powerful. And it makes me feel great all day and all night. And get this, it may be illeagal in some countries, but not in this one, so you can’t get arrested for having it!


By this time the man was very curious and asked me what is this incrediable "stuff" I was talking about. I said, "I’m talking about having Jesus in your heart! It’s awsome what he will do for you when you get him inside of you! No drug in all the world is as good as having Jesus in you."


The man stopped smiling and got this real serious look on his face and said, "I want what you have. How do I get it?"

It becomes very easy to share Jesus with someone who just asked you, "I want what you have, how do I get it?"


Come to think of it, didn’t Jesus use water in much the same way when he talked to a woman at the well in John 4:7-15?
