We are merely vessels, after all.
How much simpler could a witnessing job be than to read to another human being? As I found in the article "The Power of the Word of God", (accessed 3/11/15)
The Words that are in the Bible are pure, solid, spiritual food that have the supernatural ability to feed your mind, soul, and spirit.We're talking about no debating, no persuading, no defending...just reading from the Bible will feed you and whomever it is you are also reading to.
Now, in the season of Lent, is the perfect time to start reading the Gospel to those who have not heard it before. Now, as we approach the time of the triumphant resurrection of our Lord, is the perfect time to pray out loud with and for the person to whom we read the Gospel.
Pray: Father God, thank you for giving us the Bible, such a powerful collection of words, breathed out by you for us. Thank you for making our job so easy that we can use your power to lead others to you...that it's all your power which brings new followers. Your love for us feeds our souls and nourishes our spirits. Help me to reach out to those about whom others may say, "What difference does it make? They won't understand what I'm reading to them." Father, you love them with a love beyond measure, and only YOU can touch their hearts. I ask you today to use me to share your love letter to them with them. Amen.
