After each outreach we go home rejoicing that the gospel went out and that each of the people who heard the gospel will never be the same again in eternity, whether they come to faith or not. It's never a waste!
Yesterday at Woodridge, we got to speak to a bunch of different people, including a man named Walter who said he wanted to have a fight with God on the day of judgement as to why God let some bad things happen in his life.
We explained that we can never charge God of doing anything wrong because if you think about it, everything we have is from him anyway. God gives and can take away as He sees fit. We didn't even make our own arm, in fact our whole body is from him. Even our very mouth that we might be using to accuse God of wrong, He made it!
We encouraged him to look at the book of Job, and in particular God's response to Job who wanted to have his day in court with God (Job 38-40). For example, God says in Job 38:4 - "Where were you when I laid the foundation of the earth?"
The law and the gospel was explained to him, please pray that Walter humbles himself and realises that what he so desperately needs is to come to faith in Christ.
Also pray for others we spoke with throughout the afternoon including George, Micky, Tristan and April who in separate conversations were intently listening and were each happy to take a gospel of John home to start reading.
To God be the glory!
