This precious verse

It was a real privilege to be part of the team! I believe that reaching out at New Age exhibitions bears testimony to God’s love for a lost world. I am grateful that God has given us the opportunity to be ambassadors of his great gospel in this way and thank him for the unity, through both love and prayer, that was evident within the team.

V was a Polish Catholic, working on one of the other stands, whom I met. She told me that she had not read the Bible but enjoyed the teachings of the Pope. After explaining about Jesus and the relationship we can have with God through his Son, she told me she had observed that Protestant Christians seemed to be more joyful and open to the things of God. I explained more about our faith to her and about the Bible, the living word of God. V was willing to pray to ask Jesus to be her Lord and Saviour and gladly accepted a New Testament, along with some other literature.

V was a British girl who told me she was a Christian attending a Church of England church. She picked a card with Isaiah 53:6, “We all, like sheep, have gone astray‚Ķand the Lord has laid on Him the iniquity of us all.” Unfortunately she could not understand what it meant. After explaining it to her, I invited V to read it out again and asked whether it made more sense to her. She nodded her head and said, “Oh, yes!” after which we prayed together.

I spoke to quite a number of pagans who told me they were made to go to Sunday school or a faith school when they were young. When I asked them if they could still remember John 3:16, a few of them joined me as I recited the verse! I was very moved as this precious verse of the bible, apparently buried at the back of their mind for many years, was made alive to them again. I could see some were intrigued and accepted literature and others allowed me to pray for them.

Please pray for the different people and the many conversations we have had. Some of the people we spoke too shared details about different crises and difficult situations that they were going through. Pray that the word of God would speak mightily into their hearts and lives.
