Preaching Jesus

It was in Las Vegas. Two men stood at the crosswalks boldly proclaiming Christ to hundreds of silenced people slowly shuffling the sidewalks. The men were sweating for the Gospel in the heat of that glorious day. Was their message in vain, though? It looked to be. The crowds were packed against the other like a full glass jar of marbles. "Come to Jesus. He can set you free." No one else joined them. Not one voice was raised against them. Could the people hear? Yes. Did they? I don't know. The message was the same as it has always been. Many diverse people. One single need. These men were living their Christianity. It was heroic, but it is simple obedience. Preaching Jesus is like every other obedient act toward God. Jesus wants our obedience.
