Preaching a Biblical love at a train depot – “Shut Up!”
Just prior to short sermon, I was preaching on the ‘train side’ of this station. A man who ‘professed’ to be a Christian interrupted accusing me of being “unloving,” alleging that I was “Bible thumping” them. Though I will not be uploading ‘that video,’ when I continued to preach, he began using profanities. Once the oncoming train picked-up those awaiting passengers, I transitioned over to the bus side. At the first three seconds of ‘this video,’ you will hear that same man (now behind me) yell “shut up!” Thankfully the only two words we heard from him this time was “shut up.” I used this as an opportunity to publicly rebuke this man, to edify other believers, while evangelizing the lost. Since the crowds at this location come and go so fast, it requires sermons that come and go fast.
“For whosoever shall be ashamed of me and of my words, of him shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he shall come in his own glory, and in his Father’s, and of the holy angels” (Luke 9:26).
