Long Day cont.

18 May

One more story I wanted to share about the art show was my amazing opportunity to share the gospel with someone!

Towards the end of the day, a guy walked over to our booth to hand me a flier (got tons of those throughout the day) and invite me to a “drum circle” in Venice Beach.  The basic premise was, he said, that he wanted to invite as many musicians to this event as possible because if they could get enough people speaking the universal language of music at once, it could create enough positive energy to unite all of humanity in harmony and peace.

Um… yeah.

Here’s basically how the conversation went after that:

Me: So what is the ultimate goal of doing this?

Him: To create enough positive energy to end pain.

Me: Would you agree that man is the source of pain?

Him: At least a catalyst for pain.

Me: Agreed.  If man is the source, or catalyst, for pain, then how can man redeem pain?

Him:  I don’t have an answer for that?  Do you?

Me:  (as confidently as I have ever stated) Yes.  I do have the answer.

I got to share with him the theology of God as the Creator of all things, justice, and love,  the Holy Spirit which gives us the knowledge of who God is, and Jesus, the sacrifice that took the punishment for all our screw-ups made it possible for us to have relationship with God.

I think mostly, he was just excited and interested about getting new “ideas” to add to his repertoire of knowledge but he was still getting Truth.   

We ended the 45 minute conversation with me telling that him that if he really wanted to find truth, he could find it in the bible or at a Christian church.  Hence, the invite I gave him to Sandals.  The place where he could come as he is and get some real answers.

I don’t know if he will ever come but I do know that God has never given me words like he did that day.  I was pretty excited to have, not just an answer for him, but The Answer!

God definately answered the prayer for using mine and Abe’s art as a platform to proclain His Truth.

    The Holy Spirit will follow up on that conversation, of that I am certain. Sounds like God “filled up your mouth” and the Spirit took if from there. May God draw this man to Himself so he can find true peace and harmony through Jesus Christ. Way to go, girl.
