Another cold winters day in Essex, Mark Torrington and I hit Brentwood to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ!   Most of the time out we spend handing out tracts but, we had a few conversations with people.  I came across one elderly man who was a JW, he said that heaven will be on earth and you have to be hooked up with the 'organization' to make sure your going to get there.   He was very difficult to talk with, but I managed to show him from scripture that Jesus Christ is God.  This was done by reading Psalm 102 v 25 - 27 which was written to "Jehovah" and then turning to Hebrews 1 v 10 - 12 and seeing that the verses are applied to Jesus the Son.  He was not very interested in debating this, He preferred to talk about belonging to the correct organization.

The other conversation Mark and I had was with a group of three young boys who came up to us and were asking about the tracts we were handing out.  They understood the Law and the demands it makes on humanity and this led into the finished work of Christ at Calvary.

Later we were joined by another member of our church, Peter Ruck.  The day was a success in that the Gospel was proclaimed to many members of the public.
