Today I went out with a friend to hand out some invitations for tomorrow’s Easter service at the Branch Christian Church. I had an opportunity to talk about Christianity for over an hour to the second person I met. I have met the guy before a couple of times and listend to his point of view, but I have never had a chance to spend time sharing the gospel with him. Praise God – The Holy Spirit has really been working on this guy and I was able to contribute and be a part of His good work. His name if Brian: please pray for him. He has a strong ‘spiritual’ background with strange tattoos of Jesus with naked female angels on his right arm. He also showed me his left palm where he had gouged the roman numerals xi with a hot wire and his army knife. Amazingly he is not far from the Kingdom but just needs to come to putting his full trust in Jesus as Lord and saviour. CHRISTIAN – PRAY FOR HIM NOW!
I later handed out more invitations – people did accept them which was great. I gave one invitation to a man in a shop and he said “I still have the optical illusion tract that you gave me”
I was blown away – I did not remember him but he said that I gave it to him one night at McDonald’s. I reminded him of the message on the tract and that it was really important the he understands it.
When I had run out of invitations I approached a senior man sitting on a bench. He instantly rejected my Million Dollar tract but I was able to continue a natural conversation. He mentioned that he was now retired. I picked up on this point and asked him about his previous occupation and he had been a Postman in the United Kingdom all his life. I have a friend who is a postman and I remember what he said about the need for Postman confidentiality – you get to know what bills people have and where they get letters from. We talked about what sort of a memory you need to have and your need for strong knowledge of where people live – sometimes people send letters with just the persons name. After this long natural conversation I was able to enquire again about his Christian background – he said he was an atheist. I then listened to his explanation for how everything began – he talked about gasses coming together and forming a black dwarf or something like that – then exploding. I asked him where the gasses came from – his reply was “I don’t really go into it that far”. I explained the evidence for an intelligent creator, but unfortunately my friend finished his shopping and we had to go for family reasons. I didn’t get a chance to share the gospel.
