Leave a Trail

Do you leave a trail? What kind of a trail do you leave? If the room was clean and picked up and later you find toys strewn all around, it’s a great bet your children or grandchildren have been there. Sometimes food plates or empty soda cans are the signs kids or teenagers and even some adults have been there. Most of us leave a trail whether it’s dirty clothes or dirty dishes or misplaced books, magazines or iPads. Some track in dirt on their shoes leaving a trail. Today when I was entering a terminal train at the airport in Cincinnati I got on the trail of another follower of Christ. Think about it, a follower leaving a trail behind for people. The evidence I found was an encouragement to me, but could be of eternal significance for someone else. I’ve seen this track trail before, but not nearly as much as we should see this trail. The evangelistic track was placed where everyone in the area would see it, but was there for the one seeking God.

Psalms 96:2-4 Sing to the LORD, bless His name; Proclaim (publish) the good news of His salvation from day to day. 3 Declare His glory among the nations, His wonders among all peoples. 4 For the LORD [is] great and greatly to be praised; He [is] to be feared above all gods.

So, what kind of trail are you leaving? Do you leave a trail that says, “A follower of Christ was here?” Why not start leaving a trail behind today with a gospel track? Spiritually, we should be littering our world and communities so that those searching can find their way to our Savior Jesus Christ. Leave a trail!
