At the Gold Coast last night we found more of a general openness to the things of God compared to recent weeks. And it was great to see that God brought along about 15 people for the team.
A few people on the team did some sketchboard presentations explaining the gospel which attracted a crowd to stop and look on.
One conversation we had was with two young blokes who said they have not given much thought about whether they will go to heaven. After going through the law and the gospel with them, one of them said, "But to tell you the truth I only live for today, I don't plan for the future at all."
So I asked him, "Do you work?" He said, "Yes." I said, "You work so that at the end of the week you get your pay cheque so you buy things next week, right?" "Yep", he said. I continued, "So shouldn't you plan for where you will go when you die particularly because you could even die today?" His mate then said, "He got you there." The guy conceded and said, "True, I am going to have really consider what you have said."
To God be all the glory!
