On Saturday night at the OP513 Brisbane Outreach, some of the team members were able to speak to a young women named Sally. They spoke till about 3am and afterwards invited Sally to a local church near where she lived. Sally did go to that church and found that the sermon passage that morning was exactly what she needed to hear.
The passage: Mark 7:1-30. The message: "Targeting Sins Power - The real power of sin lives within and our hope is a new heart."
Little did the preacher know that as he spoke of the misunderstanding the Jews had regarding external cleansing rather than internal cleansing of the heart, that this young women was an ex-practicing Jew that was currently fasting to gain God's approval.
What Sally was told by the faithful witnesses on Saturday night was that she could find true freedom and peace in the finished sacrifice of Jesus, and what she heard the next morning from the faithful preacher caused Sally to be amazed at Gods love and patience with her despite her many sins.
Sally didn't go home from church after the morning service, but instead stayed to hear the evening message. Please be in prayer for Sally as she considers deeply the cost Christ paid for all those that would come to Him, and also the cost Sally would have to pay to die to herself and finally be free in Jesus Christ.
