Life is pretty sweet when you get to talk about Jesus over a Latte in Costa. The highlight of last week was doing a back of a scrap of paper bridge to life diagram and ABC of how to become a Christian with a young lad in Costa Coffee.
What was more fun was that I got to talk about the doctrine of expiation while doing it. I used the term and explained it! Mark Driscoll told a powerful story at The Brighton Conference of how Jesus’ blood cleanses us from all sin – not just those done by us, but those done to us. That is now part of my stock Gospel presentation, because so many have been left feeling dirty by the mean things people do to one another. His talk is here
I am praying for more of the Costa and Cross experiences in the coming months! The church plant is gather pace and so I’m in faith for a lot more!
