Free Bibles tableWe had a good sized team, which was great because it was busy. 

There were many great conversations that were had by the whole team. There was one young lady I spoke to for a long while named Pippin. I noticed that she was standing listening for basically the whole time while I preached with the sketchboard.

Afterwards she came up to the free Bibles table and I started a conversation with her. She said she grew up Anglican but had made the choice of leaving Christianity a number of years ago. She said that she came to deny the existence of God. After briefly explaining to her about how things made must have had a maker, so must the universe then have a maker, she said, "That makes sense."

But she didn't really want to acknowledge God. I asked her why, and it boiled down to that she wanted to live life her own way. I asked her, "If a friend of yours was going to make your favourite meal for you, and they said to you that it will taste very nice, however there is a little bit of poison in it, and so you'll be dead in one hour's time. Would you still eat it?" She responded, "Of course not." I said, "That's like sin, it may be enjoyable for the moment, but it's ultimately killing you and leading you to Hell. It's really not worth it."

I could tell she got the point. I talked with her about sin, the judgement to come, Heaven and Hell, the cross, repentance and faith. The love of sin was the big barrier of her coming to repentance and faith in Christ. She was very appreciative of the chat and said she would think seriously about it.

Pippin has heard the truth now, please pray that God will save her. Praise be to God the results are in God's hands!

To God be the glory!
