Weather’s fine but definitely cooler.

Still, the freedom to witness of the Risen Saviour gives ample cause to be out speaking to any who will hear.

My First Conversation was with Bob.

A gentleman, who it turned was in his 80’s, he told me he hadn’t heard the Gospel since his childhood, in Sunday school.

Part of that slowly increasing mission field [especially here in Pickering] of older people. They’ve lived a whole life without God and have little sense of urgency about needing to prepare to meet Him.

Mt 24:44  “Therefore you also be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect.

Bob said he recognized life was a one way journey and that he was conscious of being statistically nearer the terminus than many others, but felt no need to get ready to get off!

He did take a copy of Ultimate Questions [You can have one too if you will just ask], I pray that the light of God’s glorious grace will shine into his heart.

Matthew records Jesus’ exhortation to get on the right road now rather than waiting till its too late.

Mt 7:13  Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it.
Mt 7:14  Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.

John 14:6  Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.

Vanessa and I spoke with a Roman Catholic Couple From Leeds.

Quite firm in their commitment to Rome’s teaching, they resisted any probing questions with something like, ‘we don’t want to get into an argument’. Truth is neither did we, but we were persuaded that man will live forever in either heaven or hell, and that only Jesus Christ Himself can save you from the latter. For this reason we dare to cross the barriers of popular convention to press home the importance of knowing Him as Lord and Saviour. Churches can’t save, men can’t forgive sin, God can, will and does!

Acts 4:12  Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.”

Acts 5:31  Him God has exalted to His right hand to be Prince and Saviour, to give repentance to Israel and forgiveness of sins.

For this reason, God Willing and weather permitting, we count it a privilege to speak of Christ to all who will stop and listen.

Ready and Willing!

Ready and Waiting!

1Corinthians 9:22  to the weak I became as weak, that I might win the weak. I have become all things to all men, that I might by all means save some.
