Meeting with a JW and a praise report.

I shared nearly a year ago about how my wife and I had been meeting with a Jehovah's Witness; he came to our house about 4 different times and we would sit and talk for 2-3 hours each time. We hadn't met in nearly 8 months, as life got in the way (he moved a few blocks away from where he was living, we moved a few blocks from where we were living, health issues, etc), but we met again last night to try and pick up where we left off. The meeting was supposed to take an hour (it never does, lol) but we talked for 2 1/2 hours.

I just wanted to say that I am grateful to the Lord for His goodness in helping my wife and I be faithful witnesses to our Witness friend. We were able to continue to relay Biblical truth to him without getting too caught up in the weeds of tertiary issues. He continues to be shocked (for lack of a better word) to hear the positions my wife and I hold, and that we are able to provide Scripture and sound reason as to why. Discussing the Sovereignty of God, the nature of the Kingdom, the Character and Nature of God; these were the focuses of our evening. The Lord helped my wife and I to present a united, Biblically based front, with my wife able to reference and quote more Scripture than either our JW friend or I.

As has been the trend thus far, the evening began amicably and ended amicably, and we are to meet with him again in about a month or so. We have invited him and his wife to come eat dinner sometime, as he has an interest in smoking meats and my wife makes killer guacamole, so we shall see if this comes about. We want to love them well and let them know they are loved, even in the midst of our strong disagreements.

TL;DR – Wife and I began meeting back up with a Jehovah's Witness friend of ours, and God helped us be faithful to Him and His word. Praising God for how the evening went and for continued interaction.
