The team was blessed as God brought many labourers last night to proclaim the good news of the gospel at the Gold Coast. The first preacher of the night used a flip-chart to go through the law of God to bring the knowledge of sin and then the gospel, encouraging the packed crowd at Surfers to repent and believe in Lord Jesus Christ (Acts 16:30-31).
As the preaching went on for a while, the team had some interesting conversations with people that were listening to the preaching. One such conversation was with a young woman, who started weeping bitterly when she was confronted with the question, "if you were to die tonight, where do you think you will go - Heaven or Hell?"
She began to express her grief and said that, she is feeling grieved for all the sins she has committed and she realises that she is on her way to hell. She then continued to weep and said, she is amazed by how she is a sinner yet Christ died for her and loves her so much. She said that, she is worried about all these countless souls in surfers are hell-bound as many are not stopping by to listen to the preaching. She wanted to know what can she do to make them stop.
As we shared the gospel with her, we explained to her that we all have sinned and fallen short of God's glory (Rom. 3:23), and that before we can share the gospel with others, we ourselves must first repent and believe. We gave her a New Testament Bible to take home with her. She received it with much appreciation and said that, she is going to read it and sort her life out then make sure to share the gospel with everyone.
Please pray for everyone that have received the gospel tracts and have heard the preaching tonight, to come to repentance and accept the gift of salvation as Spirit of God continues to work in their hearts. All glory to God alone. Amen.
