It was extraordinarily busy at the Gold Coast for our weekly Friday night outreach. And God brought along a good size team to share the good news about Good Friday with the people.
It was great to see quite a number of Muslims approach our free Bibles in Arabic table, and the team was able to share the gospel with them.
A common question that they asked was, "Where did Jesus say the exact phrase 'I am God, worship me'?" They erroneously think that unless that exact phrase is mentioned in the Bible, then Jesus mustn't be God. However, we see Jesus made claims to being God in John 8:58 and accepted worshipped from people numerous times (Matt. 28:9,17).
It is wonderful to see that even though it is hard for Christian missionaries to go to the Middle Eastern countries where these Muslims are from and share the gospel with them there, they come to us! God is good!
We had a variety of people on the team who preached, and at times God drew in a crowd to listen, with some who asked questions.
God's word has gone out and it never returns empty. Praise be to God for another wonderful night!
