Why didn't I think of this: Jesus ascension was necessary to prove that our human nature was now fit to abide in God's presence?? Because T. V. Moore had already published this insight in 1858. Praise God for the insights He gives to various leaders at various times.
We had a willing team of 6 today. There seemed to be more Buddhists around than usual but none of the contacts seemed to lead to serious questions. Only one couple did the whole flip chart . He reckoned he would get into heaven even though he admitted to lying and lusting. Anyways they heard about the Substitutionary Atonement and know they need to trust the Lord Jesus Christ alone. Others were more open to learning more about God but showed no urgency in the matter.
There was M., a R.C. man from Portugal who heard the Good News but seemed to be stuck in self-love and pride about his own goodness.
There was D. who had been praying to god and when he parted company, he had a Bible and was excited.
There was P., a Greek Orthodox man, who would only say that at death one is buried. However, after refusing to take anything from Ryan or myself, he freely chatted with Paul as they strolled away for quite some time.
There was 2 'first-timer' J.W. young ladies who were well trained in causing confusion but they were challenged enough by the truth presented to them so as to close off the chat with our 2 ladies.
Fynn also had a long chat but as always we have to leave all these contacts in God's prayerful keeping.
It was a wonderful time of teamwork and we give God all the glory knowing that no labor in the Lord is in vain. Yes! We went home rejoicing.
