What I Love About Street Preaching
Rekindle the Zeal

  • It takes away the fear of man
  • It is a statement that as a Christian “I am not ashamed of the Gospel of Christ”
  • It is a publick occupation for Christ (taking a stand)
  • The Christian bears the reproach of Christ
  • The signs put the Word of God into their hearts and minds as the passers buy read the signs as I see their lips move
  • It is a warning to those who reject Christ
  • It shows the community that Christians are taking a stand and are not silenced
  • It is a direct in your face opportunity that leaves everyone around without excuse
  • The Word of God is presented and the Bible read so they do not have a choice and they hear and they know and they can’t close their eyes or plug their ears they must deal with the Gospel today
  • It builds up the Christian’s zeal for one on one getting the Word out at work and in daily conversation wherever the man of God goes
  • It salts down the community with God’s Word
  • It gives the saint first hand experience to know how wicked the world is against Christ and His Gospel
  • It is exciting when doing something that very few will ever do that is to speak loud and proclaim the Gospel in publick
  • It emboldens the man of God to walk an holy walk in every day of life with family and others
  • Street preaching helps fulfill the charge to “Preach the Word”
  • It is good experience in how to deal with difficult people as they come up and talk to you on the street
  • It is good experience in how to deal with difficult Christians who live weak lives for Christ
  • It is exhilarating
  • It is the opposite of stealth tactics of place a tract and hope no one will see you
  • It places ones light on top of the bushel for all to see instead of hiding it under the bushel
  • It is foolish (the preaching part not the message)
  • It offends many
  • It gives some Christians hope and encouragement to live a more aggressive life in Christ with less fear of man
  • Publick ministry that is getting out into the publick places is prevalent in the Bible
  • More people are reached in 45 minutes than are reached in many churches in a decade
  • At a busy corner you can communicate (verbally or by sign or banner) a Bible message to hundreds of people or more within an hour’s time. Just position yourself near a major advertising sign and the demographics have already been done for you
  • When you occupy for Christ where you are, then nobody needs to be sent to do your job where you are. Everyone else is free then to serve Christ Where they are. Just imagine if all Christians were salt and light where they are then nobody would have to go anyplace else to preach
  • It keeps you in the forefront of the battle and thereby keeps you primed for the good fight
  • It gives you an up front view of what is in the heart of man as you preach to passers by
  • It encourages the saints to have courage to get back into the battle for Jesus
  • It keeps you battle ready at all times
  • It gives you experience and history serving the Lord that makes you stronger as you go
  • You mature faster as a Christian in all areas of your life
  • It fuels zeal for Christ
  • I miss it when I haven’t done it for awhile because it makes me feel good
  • It is time well spent
  • It is an opportunity to preach the whole Gospel and the whole Word of God
  • It is an opportunity to preach the Word and let the Bible bless, curse, condemn, uplift the unsaved that Jesus Christ died for.
  • You get to be salt and light by preaching the Biblical Truth
  • At least somebody is doing something in my area, because I do not see any evangelism anywhere around here.
  • It is a time to give out the Word of God to the Glory of God.
And what street preaching isn’t
  • It is not the end of ministry, there is plenty more to do
  • It cannot give people a knowledge of Christ such as reading the Gospel of John can
  • It isn’t a ministry many Christians or sinner like very much
  • It isn’t for sissies
  • It doesn’t mean you are special or great
  • It is not something that YOU have to do
  • It is not a substitute or replacement for anything
  • You do not have to act stupid or obnoxious when preaching
  • You do not have to be rude or mean
  • You do not have to be embarrassed
  • You do not have to learn apologetics
  • You do not have to give a performance or show
  • You do not have to strive to draw a crowd
  • You do not need gimmicks or gadgets
  • You do not have to have nor do you need a banner or sign
  • You don’t even need to yell or speak out loud if you don’t want to
  • Publick ministry is nothing but giving out the Word of God in publick places
  • However, you don’t have to keep silent, you can speak up and preach the gospel
  • You don’t have to use your own words; you can preach Bible verses only if you want
  • It shouldn’t be all about you
  • It isn’t a blast session where you verbally tear people apart
  • It isn’t an opportunity to tell everyone that they are worthless sinners and will all go to hell
  • It isn’t an opportunity to make yourself feel good by verbally condemning everyone to hell
  • You can develop and prepare a sermon and deliver it in publick; it doesn’t have to be extemporaneous.
  • It probably isn’t happening where you are unless you decide to go
