“The Middle” has been a popular TV sitcom since its premiere in September 2009. The parents in the Heck family are middle-aged, middle-class, middle-Americans with three children. The show has followed the family through life’s ups and downs, life’s joys and sorrows, and now the show is in its final season. While the show is a secular show, the lead actress Patricia Heaton is a proclaimed Christian and there have been many references to God and faith during the nine seasons.
We share with you these short clips from “The Middle” TV show for educational purposes. Let them challenge you to think about how you should respond when asked questions about the Bible and the gospel. In eight entertaining video clips, the Hecks will teach you lessons about how to answer and, just as important, how not to answer.
These videos are short, so watch them all. Together they “walk you through” a very instructive teaching about how we should be diligent to share God’s Word in truth and with love. They also remind us that we should be ready always to give an answer for the hope that we have, and we should do so with gentleness and kindness (1 Peter 3:15).

Be Ready Always...
to give a reason for the Hope that you have (1 Peter 3:15). When you can’t share the gospel with your words, share it by leaving tracts that tell people about God's grace.
When leaving a tract, always be diligent to pray about the short gospel message. Pray that it be found by someone who is in need of Jesus’ saving grace, and pray that the person will have a tender heart and open ears to receive the gift Jesus desires to give them.
By the power of the Holy Spirit, even a small tract can help in turning a broken sinner from darkness to light.
SHARE THE GOSPEL!
This book contains sayings that we all use often -- and shares the Scripture from which they originate. The book will equip Christians to recognize sayings that originate in the Bible, so they can respond with, “Who said that?” ...and then share the biblical origin and turn the conversation to one of spiritual importance.
Want to Share the Gospel this Christmas
This book can also serve as a type of “tract” for your non-believing family and friends. As they discover the origins of many common sayings, they'll find the last one most convicting. The book closes with a saying that was popularized in the TV comedy, "Seinfeld."
That means “you know, you know, you know.” The book explains the Hebrew saying and tells that: “God knows [yada] you." Then the most important question is asked, “Do you know [yada] Him?” The question is followed by a gospel message, making this book a simple way to share the gospel with an unsaved, and often uninterested or unwilling-to-listen, friend or family member.
