The kid's passports are expiring soon. So, today we went into the US Consulate office in Edinburgh and renewed them. I decided just to stay in town and pass out flyers. As I started this morning I was reminded that the Lord has to open doors. The first half hour was very slow. But, the Lord gave me 3 very good divine appointments today.
The first was with a young man who grew up with an Anglican minister for a father. He is agnostic. The Lord blessed our conversation as we went through Scripture after Scripture. I challenged him to read John and write references about belief and to read Romans and to write references against works. I hope he takes the challenge. We talked for at least 30 minutes.
The next was after lunch. I spoke to a Muslim and began walking with him to his destination *(Edinburgh central mosque for prayers). God again guided as I showed him Isaiah 53, Psalm 22, and Genesis 3 (the lamb slain to cover men's sins.) They believe that Jesus was taken off the cross and someone else died in his place. He was interested to see the crucifixion in the OT. I challenged him to read Isaiah and to study the Messiah.
The last opportunity was with an 18 year old skeptic. I took him to Romans 1 and Psalm 22. He was interested and expressed appreciation for our conversation. I told him that at least he knows where he is at and that Paul was against God before His conversion.
Please pray for God to bless the flyers and witnessing opportunities. Thanks for praying for open doors to the Gospel.
