I’m not even sure if what happened to me this morning can be described as culture shock but I will put it like that. I got on the bus this morning and headed for Church. About halfway through the journey, some people joined the bus at different bus stops and then behind me, I heard a voice speaking:
“Jesus is the way. Surrender your life to Him today.”
What?! Preaching on a bus in London? I have never experienced anything like that before. Every word he said and my heart pricked me for so many reasons but the major one being that I find it difficult to even tell my colleagues at work about Jesus and here was a man preaching to a bus full of strangers. *sigh*
It got even worse when someone in the bus told him to keep quiet. But that’s when the unity of Christianity shows up; people in the bus (other Christians) told the guy to shut up while they cheered their Christian brother on. I was impressed.
I got off the bus and said to the man preaching: “God bless you” while I walked down and thought about my lack of witnessing of the Name of Jesus.
Food for thought:
It’s really something to think about. Today, I know how the first Apostles felt and that’s when we really see Grace for what it is.
