Street-Preaching – Uh Why?

3 Comments

“I believe I never was more acceptable to my Master than when I was standing to teach those hearers in the open fields…I now preach to ten times more people than I would if I had been confined to the churches.” George Whitfield

ha love it We were there to street-preach before the concert began and set up the PA system. With wave upon wave of people coming across the street toward us and hundreds more pouring out from the train station behind us, it was crazy busy.  There were so many people that at one point I could hardly move.

It was too good an opportunity to pass up. I preached.

“Nobody cares!” someone screamed at me.

Who cares if nobody cares?  I certainly don’t.  My Lord Jesus told me to “Go”.   I kept preaching. I preached for as long as I could, until my voice started cracking and I had to stop for its sake.street preaching

Street-preaching – why? (I ask myself this when I’m feeling tired or lazy)

Because thousands of people, both old and young heard the gospel of Jesus Christ last night who perhaps wouldn’t have otherwise.

What if those people never once in their life ever stepped inside a Church?What if they never heard the gospel before they died?

Thank you my Jesus.

  1. Good. Jesus said, “Go”, not trick them into coming. Paul went. All the apostles went. The world was changed in one generation. Modern western culture waits for people to come to their buildings. And we are going down the sewer. Again, good for you and all who tell Good News when we go out.
    Peace

    • I know right? – somehow everything has reversed and now we sit in a comfortable church building for 2 hours on a Sunday and think we are fulfilling the great Commission… the early church went out, so should we. God bless you for your encouragement.
