Why would you read the Bible? Bus adventures


So, sitting on the bus today reading my kindle and this lady comes and sits next to me. She starts chatting away which I don’t mind and we ended up talking about a lot of stuff. It was really nice. Then she looks at my kindle and asks,

what are you reading?

I answer :”The Bible“.

She looked at me with surprise in her eyes, looking like she was trying to figure out if I was joking but when she saw that I was serious

she asked “why would you do that?”

I said because “It teaches me about Jesus and it helps me in life. It’s kind of like a life manual, you can find many answers in it”

“Oh” was her only response.

She fell silent for the rest of the journey (prolly thinking that I’m a nutter, like some do…)so, I just prayed for her. I don’t care what people think, I care about how God thinks of me.

  1. Sometimes it surprises me to hear how shocked people are when others choose to follow Christ, or be so bold to actually read the Bible in public. You gave her a great answer that prayerfully and hopefully will lead her to Christ!

    We all need to “not care about what people think of us and about what God thinks of us.”
    This is what I endeavor to do always.
    Thanks tor this reminder and encouragement to keep doing it!

  3. You may not have thought the interaction went that well based on her reaction to you, but never underestimate what could be going on in her heart. I love that she even showed an interest in what you were reading, so many people do nothing but keep themselves insulated from those around them. This was an opportunity that leaped right at you. :)
