What a mighty God we serve

By Nancy Murphy – We began our monthly outreach table at Oakridge Mall this afternoon. For days we’d been praying that God would bring those that He was drawing to His Son so that we could share the gospel with them. We put out an assortment of interesting tracts, books, CDs and Bibles on the table and set up the “Are You a Genius” poster, which always catches people’s attention. Pretty soon I noticed a group of 4 teenagers looking at the poster, so I made my way over from the other side of the table. In a fun and light hearted way I was able to begin a conversation with them and build a relationship. After we went through the genius test questions I asked them if they thought they could pass the ‘Good Person Test’ to see if they were good enough to go to heaven. They were interested and listened carefully. After I presented the law and the gospel to them they all agreed it made sense and asked me some good questions. One of them took a Bible and one asked for a book mark with the 10 Commandments on it. I told them that our conversation was not by chance because we had prayed and asked God to send the specific people He wanted. That was when one of them, Milen, age 17, told me that he wasn’t sure what to believe because his family was Jehovah’s Witness. He had recently prayed and asked God to help him find the right religion. Wow, what a confirmation of our prayers! I was able to give him some material to read and a list of good churches. I encouraged him to study the bible for himself and to ask God to show him the truth. When I told him I would be praying for him he thanked me. I am confident that if God is drawing him, He will complete the job. What an awesome and mighty God we serve!
