On Saturday, the Essex Team was out on the Romford High Street for outreach. Jacob had many good conversations with different people. I was able to preach for two hours with people stopping to listen or sitting down and listening. I emphasized that God commands all men everywhere to repent and believe the Gospel (Acts 17:30).
There is a song on the radio that asks why people are so empty and whether they are weary trying to fill a void (Shallow from the film 'A Star is Born'). They are empty because they have turned their back on Christ and His salvation. I asked "After 50 years of the philosophy, 'if it feels good, do it', why do you feel so empty after you have 'done it'?" I also preached form Romans 5, Psalm 103 and Ephesians 2.
Please pray for Joseph, who listened for a long time to the preaching, but is not committed to a local church. James the homeless man said that he knew the Gospel already. Jacob had a lengthy conversation with a young couple shown in the first photo. A group came by handing out fliers for a staging of "The little shop of horrors" dressed in costume. They listened, but were resistant to Gospel invitation. Sovereign and her son Divine chatted with Jacob for a long time as well. Jacob had an extended talk with Sam, who was disappointed with the government and people in general and wondered why bad things happen to people. Jacob argued that none are good in God's eyes and our standards are corrupted by our fallen nature, but God knows are every thought. Jacob then explained the Gospel to him. Sam asked for Jacob's number to talk further.
