Saturday 23rd May 2009 Bank Holiday Weekend.

The weather is fine today so we grasped the opportunity to pass on the good news that Jesus Christ died for sinners and that those who believe on Him are completely forgiven.

The Steam Locomotive and the North Yorks Moors Railway are among the main attractions in the town, we just get used to its appearance as it changes track.

We are in town to inform the many who pass by of the amazing truth that Jesus Christ died and rose again so that the record of their sin might be blotted out. One of the great joys of doing this is meeting other believers, do stop and share your faith with us, its a great encouragement.

Why is it that when you take the Lord’s command to ‘Go into all the world and preach the gospel’ people from the established church can’t understand what you are doing. We spoke to two ladies today who were clearly faithful members of their ‘parish’ churches but didn’t know the Gospel and had the impression that a welcome into heaven depended on church attendance and their own good works? Too many people have been duped by religion, they have enough to make them religious but know nothing of the joy and peace of being in Christ.

I spoke with one young lady who was hanging around to smoke a cigarette, its hard to believe people still do that. I was able to speak with her about the danger of ignoring the warning on the cigarette packet, and then of ignoring the the spiritual health warning God gives.

‘The wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is everlasting life’ [Romans 6:23]

Who in their right mind would choose death, yet many do, but I fear its because they insanely imagine ‘it will never happen to me’ or at least not for a while yet. Tragically no one is in their right mind until Jesus Christ delievers them from their delusions, I do hope and pray you have believed and enjoy eternal life now. If you are unsure get in touch and we’ll do what we can to help you come to the place of resting in the gracious love of God.

We do meet old friends at time and Sonia [who is Brazillian and married to a local man] and her son were only too happy to stop and talk.
