Strength and Courage at Starbucks

I was at Starbucks the other day having a Bible study, as well as watching a DVD on The Life and Theology of Jonathan Edwards, when I saw two girls sitting directly across from me. I could tell something was amiss. One girl acted ‘high’ (numb and lethargic), and the other girl seemed to be the discombobulated girl’s keeper. I felt the Lord put it on my heart to share Jesus with them. So, I put away my study materials and walked up to them.
“Can I share Jesus with you?” I asked. They just stared at me as their eyes grew to the size of saucers.
So I tried again: “Do you know Jesus?”
The sober girl answered me, “I’m an atheist!”
“Okay,” I answered. “But do you think Jesus was a real person?”
She started to answer, “Yeah, I think he was a real person,” then rolled her eyes, picked up the phone, and told me to talk to her friend. So I shared the good news of Jesus Christ with the girl whose eyes engulfed me.
