This morning, I took a bus into Edinburgh and handed out flyers. (For the kids out there reading this - it is fun to serve the Lord! Today I got to walk around the most beautiful city I've ever seen and talk to people about God and His Word. I can't think of anything I would rather have done this morning.) The Lord gave me 4 really good witnessing opportunities.
I was talking to some men who were definitely on something. They had just left with some disagreeable words when Gavin came by. He was very kind and we walked together for quite a ways as we talked about God. He doesn't know what to believe and said that he "wants" to believe. I encouraged Him to get into God's Word.
Adrian does not believe in God. But, he was kind to converse with me. He is living for the "here and now" and has no time to pursue faith in God. I hope he'll take the time to start seeking after God. We talked for about 15 minutes.
James was my best opportunity. He is 18 and has been thinking about God since the recent death of his grandfather. He was very attentive as I shared with Him some proofs God has given in His Word which show the Bible to be His Divine revelation. James was very thankful for our conversation. He lives near a good Baptist church in Clermiston which I encouraged him to visit. Please pray that God will continue to work in this young man's heart.
I also had a good chat with a couple who ran in the Edinburgh Marathon yesterday. They both finished despite the heat. They were from Cornwall, England.
God's good. He opened some doors this morning. The Gospel was sown and God has promised that if we sow we will reap. People were very receptive today.
