"You're just the person I was looking for."
Last night in Brisbane city the team had an exciting opportunity to preach the good news, that Christ Jesus came into this world to save sinners.
Each time the team assembles, it is an opportunity to share with others the power of the gospel but it is also extremely valuable for personal humility - being reminded how much you, even as a Christian, need the salvation that Christ has offered.
One encouraging conversation was had right at the end of the night. Jack and Karl were walking through the mall and were asked, "Do you think you will go to Heaven when you die?" Jack looked at his friend, then responded, "You're just the person I was looking for". Over the course of the discussion Jack didn't argue with anything that was said. In fact the look on his face seemed to imply that he was taking this information very seriously. Karl his friend was a little bit sporadic but this eagerness was helpful. Over the course of the conversation, Jack's serious concern about this topic was reiterated. Karl even said, "You've been really worried about this for a while," a number of times!
In the end, Jack and Kyle openly acknowledged their sinfulness and deserved justice before a Holy God. They were not opposed to God's just punishment. When ultimately posed with the question, "Is the opportunity to live for yourself over this short life time, worth suffering God's wrath in Hell?" neither of them were able to state definitively either way. They left with a clear choice infront of them.
Please pray for Jack, Kyle and all those who were engaged in conversations, took tracts or stopped to listen to the preaching.
