I thought when I would shake hands with someone that it might spark a conversation that would lead to my Lord Jesus. That has not happened but once, mostly because I don't shake hands very often with people and because I think people don't notice it, they have become accustom to seeing tattoos.
The kids in my class ask why I have an X on my hand. I tell them it isn't an X it is a Cross. Most of the time they say oh you have it because you love Jesus and I say yes.... Witnessing tool, Yay!
I have found that it is more of a witnessing tool for myself. Every time I see it I am reminded of all God has done for me. I think of His only Son dying for my life to be spared. I think of His Spirit that dwells in me, guiding me, if I let Him. I remember how many times I have forgotten to share his story when I had a chance and am ashamed. I pray that this Cross will become more of a tool that God can use through me.
"Love always involves responsibility, and love always involves sacrifice. And we do not really love Christ unless we are prepared to face His task and to take up His Cross." ~William BarclayThe Drawing:
