beating a dead horse? is that so wrong?

i’ve posted quite a bit about the super ninja gummy bear in the last 24 hours. i know.

but how remiss would it be not to post the link to the amazing video on my own blog…

answer: very.

funny story… someone “jokingly” called it a golden calf, so i had to explain again where the SNGB originated.

and in doing so, it hit me… this is a very powerful evangelism tool. simple. clear. the next evangecube (which, btw i’m a huge fan of) without all the sunday school looking images. this is why:

the super ninja gummy bear originated in a script about heaven… salvation…

the character was doing everything possible to get into the super ninja gummy bear club. but was told that it wasn’t possible to earn your way in. you couldn’t do enough gummy sit ups, or anything else to earn your way in. in the script, someone had to give up their spot so that someone could join. after that… it was available to anyone and everyone, they just had to say “yes, i want to be a super ninja gummy bear”. done.

that’s how it is with heaven. Jesus. Salvation.

you can’t be good enough. you can’t work your way into God’s perfect heaven. you can never earn it. it is only because of Christ’s sacrifice that we have the hope promise of heaven. he had to make a sacrifice to pay our way to heaven. and he did. now all you have to do is say yes.

that’s like 5 sentences to share the truth of the gospel. all because of a little bear. in the coming weeks we are going to be helping kids see how important it is to share the Truth with their friends. and to think… they get to start the conversation with a bear. someone says “where’d you get that? can i get that song? that tshirt? i love that bear”… and you get to tell them what he represents. boom. EE simplified. Evangecube made easy. Gospel in a gummy little bear with made ninja “loving” skills… as the song says “anyone can join the club, all you have to do is love… everyone around” (you can only love everyone if LOVE is in you. and LOVE is only in you if the Holy Spirit is in you.

what’s your favorite way to enter into the conversation about eternity with others?
