Day 116- Drive Thru, Please

I know several people who have what I call a "drive thru" ministry. This is when you reach out to employees in a drive thru window. I don't have this type of ministry because I try to stay away from fast food as much as possible. However, there are days when it appears to be the only option. At a fast food restaurant today, I pulled up to the drive thru window and was greeted by a cashier with a big smile. She asked how my day was and I commented that it was great, much better than I deserved. After I had purchased the meal I handed her a gospel tract. She told me that she goes to church when she has time, but often has to work. I then asked if she knew how to get to heaven. With a big smile she nodded as if she was quite confident with her heavenly destination. The window then closed only to open again with a receipt. To make sure that her confidence was legitimate, I asked, "How do you know you are going to heaven?" The big smile reappeared followed by, "I don't know." Aware that my order would soon arrive and my time was running out, I quickly replied, "You can go to heaven when you repent and trust in Jesus." Drive thru witnessing is very similar to getting a carton of milk at the grocery store. The gospel is never as thorough as you would like due to the amount of time available, but a seed was planted.
