I Can Talk to God

August 6, 2010

At a fair in Ohio staff from SOS and some volunteers from a local church was working in the booth. Many people walk by and are curious about what is behind the doors on the display. There is always a sign that says See 3 things God Can Not Do.

One man a grandfather kept walking past the sign and finally came over to the staff worker and asked to see what was behind the doors.

He was shown the doors. 1. God Can Not Lie 2. God Can Not Change
3. God Can Not Let Anyone Into Heaven Unless He is Born Again.

“I’m Catholic”, the man said.

“Are you 50, 75 or 100% sure you would go to Heaven if you died today? The worker asked.

“No, I do not know I am going to Heaven”.

The staff member took Ray to the soul winners table where Ray accepted the Lord then he asked, “Could you get me a Bible? I go to mass every Sunday and after that service I go to a Bible preaching church because I found out there that I can talk to God without going through a priest”.

A few minutes later Ray’s wife walked past the tent and the exact same thing happened. She also was asked the questions, went back to a soul winner and accepted Christ as her Savior.

What a blessing to have a place to witness where people from all faiths have an opportunity to hear that God loves them and they can know Jesus personally. Like Ray said, “I can talk to God.”

Deuteronomy 5:24 And ye said, Behold, the LORD our God hath shewed us his glory and his greatness, and we have heard his voice out of the midst of the fire: we have seen this day that God doth talk with man, and he liveth.
