Several years ago I went to Minehead, in West Somerset, to preach the gospel of Christ in the open air. It was a beautiful sunny day and I decided to preach on the seafront, opposite the West Somerset Railway Station. I had arranged for a friend called Andrew to meet me there with his camcorder, so he could film me preaching. As I proclaimed the gospel of Christ in that beautiful place, a lady and her daughter stopped to listen. I told 'the old, old story of Jesus and His love' and explained that although we could not get to heaven on the West Somerset Railway, we could get there by coming as repentant sinners to Jesus Christ, believing in Him as our risen Saviour and confessing Him as Lord!
As I continued to preach the greatest news in the world, I told passers-by and those who stood listening, that they needed to come to Christ urgently and that today was the time, quoting the words of II Corinthians 6:2 ... now is the day of salvation.
I warned them that they could die that very night and urged them to get right with God!
The next day Andrew phoned me and said, " Do you remember that lady with her daughter, who stood listening to you yesterday? She died in the night at my friend's guest house and he had to call out the undertaker!"
This lady had gone back to the guest house after hearing me preach the gospel and had told the proprietor that she and her daughter had been listening to a preacher on the seafront! She was not to know that her soul and spirit would leave her body that very night!
Reader do you know Jesus Christ as your Saviour? If not, come to Him today!
