Recently, I was preaching in a church for an Evangelistic service.
At the very beginning of the message, I announced (as I often do in the introduction): “In about thirty minutes, at the end of this sermon, I will invite you, if you wish, to come to the front and give your life to Jesus.”
To my surprise, a lady gets up and comes to the front of the platform.
I get down and tell her: “Thank you for coming. But I suggest you listen to the Gospel message first, and from there you can decide if you want to give your life to Jesus.”
When I think back on that scene, I smile and say to myself: This must be every preacher’s dream: to see people come forward before he’s even started preaching!
For the record, this dear lady stood up again, this time at the end of the message…
