Speak Up!

The story is told that the eminent preacher, Charles H. Spurgeon, was testing the acoustics at the expansive Agricultural Hall in London. Spurgeon was noted for his powerful voice. It was said he could preach to 20,000 and be heard clearly. This was, of course, before the days of sound systems and amplification. In that great hall Spurgeon bellowed out, “Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world!” Years later a man approached Spurgeon to thank him. He said that day when Spurgeon had visited the Agricultural Hall he was working in the rafters. Just hearing the preacher quote that great passage from John 1:29 brought him to repentance and faith in Jesus Christ.

Speak up for Jesus today. You never know who may be listening, or what the results will be!
