Sometimes security guards can actually help us to preach the Gospel!
Here is a surprising account from “Downtown” Leon Brown, a friend of mine and Ambassadors’ Academy mentor, who experienced a little kindness from a guard as he preached at a brand new location. Hey! Miracles do happen!
Today I had the privilege of preaching at the DMV. It was my first time preaching at this particular DMV, so I knew I would catch some people by surprise. The cool thing was that I had a permit signed by the California Highway Patrol which allowed me to be there from 7:45am to 8:15am.
While I was preaching, the security guard attempted to stop me, but I continued to preach till 8am.
As I was walking to my vehicle, the security guard tracked me down and said, “Sir, you still have 15 minutes.”
I guess he recognized he was wrong by trying to stop me, but he did ask that I sign into a log each time I’m there. I agreed!
Never forget that we have the privilege and honor of sharing God’s Word; it should not be viewed as a burden or something we don’t have time for.
