Divine appointments :)
Don and I had a some opportunities today to speak with people as we put out flyers. Two separate opportunities were with older women who lamented the inability to sing in church. (The government restrictions have caused many churches to stop singing.) I told them the Bible commanded singing, "Come into His presence with singing." Our church is obeying God in this regard, though we are socially distanced and the congregation is wearing masks.
Eph 5:19 Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord;
Col 3:16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.
Please pray that they will want to visit the church. Both were kind but answered clearly that they were not born again. (That is very sad when you realize that they are in a denomination from which many great Gospel ministers have been sent.) I shared John 3:7 with them and I hope they will get in their Bibles and study John 3 for themselves.
Don struck up a conversation with a man named Scott. Please pray for this man. We spoke with him for 25 minutes and I believe that Scott is close to salvation. It seems that others have been speaking to him about the Gospel. He is in his mid 60's and is disillusioned with the religious system which has been his since birth. Please pray that he will have the courage to visit our Baptist Church. He's a very nice man and a good listener. We asked if he wanted to trust Christ right then. He answered that he needed some time to consider it. We left him with a John and Romans as well as the link to The Journey. (Thanks for praying for divine appointments. Prayer works because God works when you pray. :)
