Some years ago a commuter on the Long Island Railroad was known to every regular patron on the five o'clock local.

He was a well-dressed, soft-spoken young man who lived at Jamaica. Every evening after the train left the subway he would rise & go to the front of the car.

As he walked back he would speak to every passenger, saying, "Excuse me; but if any of your family or any of your friends are blind, tell them to consult Dr. Garl. He restored my sight."

That is evangelism. He did not argue. He testified. Courteously, courageously, confidently he commended to each & all the one who had opened his eyes.

He had good news & he told it. If we who are redeemed would do likewise!

"If we understand what lies ahead for those who do not know Christ, there will be a sense of urgency in our witness." - David Jeremiah.
