This article is enough to put all of us in America to shame. It contrasts the Chinese House Church with western Christianity. The comparison is sad — for western Christianity. On the other hand, to see how the Chinese House Churches follow the Lord Jesus is encouraging and exhilarating.
This great article is written by someone who does street preaching, who has learned by experience how to get the interest of crowds in order to present the Gospel. He goes further and tells us what must be preached in order to bring his listeners to repentance. This is most worthwhile for every pastor and teacher, particularly as Jesse points out the need for parable-like stories and examples to make the message easily understood as well as to grab the listener’s interest.
Jesus said no man can come to him unless the Father draw him. How does the Father do that? Charles Finney, one of the world’s leading evangelists of the 19th century told how he believed God did that. If this is so, we need to consider carefully how we act as we seek to bring people to a saving faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
In this writing, William Booth describes the human condition, the lost striving to survive in the middle of a wild ocean storm but losing the battle, but some finding refuge on a huge rock. But then he describes the activities of those who managed to get on the rock. Some passionately sought to save those dying in the roaring waves while others seemed indifferent to those dying around them. William’s conclusion is one for all of us.
Would you like to walk along with those who do open air preaching and confront sin where they find it? This article is Jesse’s personal account of a day of witnessing in Dallas in three different venues — an abortion clinic, a mission, and finally outside night clubs.
