It was a rather hot day at Wellington Point on Sunday arvo so it was good to be under the shade of a tree. It’s always good to pray and fellowship with the team members as we hand out tracts and share the good news of the gospel with the people of the area out and about enjoying the day.
I had a talk with Ian, a middle aged aussie bloke and his asian partner and upon going through a few of the ten commandments I asked if they have ever told a lie. They agreed and the lady said that she lied to her mother and then pointed to Ian and said that he lied to her. Not wanting them to start an argument with each other, I quickly went on to another commandment to show them that they and all of us are guilty of breaking God’s laws.
I explained that we will have to stand before the judgement seat of God one day and give an account of the way we lived while on our journey in this short thing called life! This couple had someone waiting for them but before they went I shared the Gospel and challenged them to investigate this message for they do not know if they will have tomorrow!!
When I had finished the chat with that couple, Ryan told us that a young man had contacted him during the week and said that he lived in Wellington Point and asked if it would it be alright if he could come and meet us and join us in sharing the gospel. Well of course we said no (only joking).
Ryan told us that he was coming that arvo. He (Tai) arrived and we got acquainted with him, gave him some tracts and showed him tips on handing the tracts out. He also got to listen to Ryan witness to a couple of teenage boys. These two boys were cousins of two other teenagers Ryan had shared the gospel with only ten minutes before. They were of the Indian Sikh religion and had never heard this message before and told their two cousins to check out what Ryan was sharing!!! Wow praise God. Please pray for the young boys that our Lord would bring them to saving faith in Him.
The ladies joined us shortly after they had witnessed to a number of people at the jetty. We introduced them to Tai and they got to encouraged Tai in his decision to come out and share the gospel with us. We prayed and thanked our Lord for His abundant mercy and grace poured out upon us daily and that His word will not return void but will accomplish what He sent it to do.
Bless His Holy name.
