The naysayer says it’s a waste of time to preach to people on street corners because no one is listening. The store owner says he’s bad for business. The timid Christian is embarrassed by what he says… Listen to what the Prince of Preachers, Charles Spurgeon (1834 – 1892), had to say about all this “foolishness.”
You that preach in the streets, go on preaching Him. I saw a man preaching the other day with no creature but one dog to listen to him, and I really thought that he might as well have gone home. But I met with a story yesterday, which I know to be true, and it showed me that I was making a mistake. There was a woman who for years had been is such dreadful despair that she would not even hear the gospel.
She became very ill, and she said to one that called on her, “You sent a man to preach under my window 3 months ago, and I got a blessing.”
“No,” the friend said, “I never sent anyone to preach under your window.”
“Oh,” she said, “I think you did, for he came and preached, and my maid said that there was no one listening to him. I did not want to hear him; and as he made so much noise , my maid shut the window, and I lay down in bed; but the man shouted so that I was obliged to hear him; and I thank God he did, for I heard the gospel, and I found Christ. Did you not send him?”
“No,” said the good man, “I did not.”
“Well,” she said, “then God did. There was nobody in the street listening to him; but I heard the gospel, and I got out of my despair, and I found the Savior, and I am prepared to die.”
Fire away, brethren! You do not know where your shot will strike, but “there’s a billet for every bullet.” (That is, there’s a home for every sermon.)

In raising a new interest, and in mission operations, out of door services are a main agency. Get the people to listen outside that they may by-and-by worship inside. You want no pulpit, a chair will do, or the kerb of the road. The less formality the better, and if you begin by merely talking to the two or three around you and make in pretence of sermonizing you will do well. More good may be done by personal talk to one that by a rhetorical address to fifty. Do not purposely interfere with the thoroughfare, but if the crowd should accumulate, do not hasten away in sheer fright: the policeman will let you know soon enough.
– Charles Spurgeon

Lisa, Diane and Myself hit the campus to share the words of eternal life with the students of UNA today. We handed out many tracts and CD'S today and I was able to spend some time to share the Gospel with a student named Steven. He said that he went to church and thought the Bible was a good manual to try to follow. He seemed to think that if we followed good enough that we would be ok. I was able to take him through the law and was able to share about Gods grace and that he can't keep Gods law and needed to be covered by the righteous merit of another Jesus Christ. After I shared the whole council of God with him he seemed to understand that his works will not get him into Heaven. I challenged him to pick up his Bible to examine himself to see if he is in the faith from 1st John. Our friend Shaun stopped by to hang with us for awhile and we also saw Ken today we haven't seen him for a few weeks he said he has been ill and is fighting some viral infection. Lisa had a great conversation with a girl named Casey and was able to share the Gospel with her also.Please pray for these students that GOD will open up their eye's and change their hearts. May GODS name be high and lifted up on this campus.
