Ghosts, goblins, ghouls, and other crazy superstitions fill the air. From shelves filled with candy galore to costumes of every creature imaginable, Halloween tends to be promoted even above Christmas and Easter these days.
It seems like Satan’s holiday is winning over those we hold closest to our hearts, our children. But this does not need to be the case. We can use the devil’s day in a way which can reach thousands of young souls.
Halloween is the one day of the entire year children and teens visit our doorsteps. We need to take advantage of the fact we can go soul-winning without ever leaving the house.
What is stopping us? Sharing our faith with kids can feel intimidating. Fear of how to communicate with them can stop us in our tracks. However, when we keep the gospel clear and simple, even children can truly grasp it. By including one of our special Halloween Tracts with each piece of candy you hand out, you can open the door to explaining the gospel truth inside. Make this a day of victory for Christ. Don’t let the devil find you fearful rather than faithful.
