The weather is good today, visitors are fewer, but there’s plenty of opportunity to talk about knowing God through Jesus Christ.
My main conversations today were with two separate young women .
The first one had no understanding of the Gospel, yet believed she ‘might’ meet God one day. Was she perfect? By her own admission she tried to be, but she knew she wasn’t.
Trouble is, God is perfect and His heaven is place for ‘perfect’ people.
Matthew 5:48 “Therefore you shall be perfect, just as your Father in heaven is perfect.
I had the privilege of explaining that ‘perfection’ is God’s gift to those who hear and obey His Son:
Matthew 19:21 Jesus said to him, “If you want to be perfect, go, sell what you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, follow Me.”
You must choose between your possessions and Jesus Christ, otherwise you become just like the the young man referred to above.
Matthew 19:22 But when the young man heard that saying, he went away sorrowful, for he had great possessions.
The other , a young mother, knew that the Gospels were in the New Testament, but knew nothing of its message.
She stood and talked, grappling with what she was hearing about her personal sin and her need of a personal Saviour, she eventually gave way to her young man who insisted on leaving.
Reminds me of Felix when Paul sought to teach him the Truth.
Ac 24:25 Now as he reasoned about righteousness, self-control, and the judgment to come, Felix was afraid and answered, “Go away for now; when I have a convenient time I will call for you.”
