Had a little bit of time this afternoon to go down to Heritage Park in Canton, Ga. to try out my new amp I got for my birthday a few weeks ago.
As some of you know (and I'm sure most do not) I would not consider myself an extrovert or a "Type-A" personality by any stretch of the imagination. I tremble at the thought of public speaking and still get very nervous any time Cam or Vernon and I go out to share the gospel.
So for me to actually get up on a box, read Scripture or open-air witness, it takes more than just my shear will power to accomplish the task; it takes prayer and the Holy Spirit.
In order for me to try out my new amp, to make sure the sound levels reach the intended targets (other than my living room that is), I actually needed to go somewhere outside...duh. While Cindy and I were out today I stopped over at Heritage Park, set up my stool, and proceeded to read the Gospel of John chapters 1 and 3 as well as a portion of the Sermon on the Mount from Matthew chapter 7.
The whole time I was reading the Scripture, there was a small family of about five people playing frisbee and sliding down the small hills in the park. After I finished reading, I open-aired Law and Gospel to the family. They paid no attention to me that I could tell, but knowing that God's Word will not return void, I gave Him the glory for the time out there -
