Today Peter Ruck and I hit Brentwood town center.  After prayer we both walked up to the main street and began to hand out many tracts.  Peter had a few conversations with some people who were sitting on the seats near the ruins and I too, managed to speak to a number of people.  Firstly it was a young girl named Taylor who said that during the last few weeks various people had been talking to her about Jesus and giving her Bibles etc.  We discussed the Law of God and the need for Jesus death for forgiveness of sin.  She appeared to be taking these truths seriously, perhaps God is drawing her to salvation!  The second person I spoke to was a young guy named Grant.  He just wanted to "live life while He's got it" and we discussed the notion of Divine Justice for law breakers.  He agreed that people will be held accountable for their sins, but didn't want to think of the penalties he will incur at the moment.  He did take a tract at the end, may God break his capricious spirit!  The last gentleman I spoke to was a Dave.  He was a Scotsman who had a Presbyterian up bringing.  We discussed the Law, condemnation and Jesus' death for those who repent and believe.  Dave didn't seem to take much interest.  I reminded him that even if he didn't believe the Bible was true, it wasn't going to change the reality of Gods judgment on His and everyone's sin.  I think he tuned into what we were talking about then and even thanked me for chatting to him.  SDGPeter talking
