Ode to a Street Preacher

Keep Pressing On!

“For you have need of endurance,

So that when you have done the will of God,

You may receive what was promised.”

Hebrews 10:37

Standing on the sidewalk

Sharing Jesus Christ

With passers by

Tears running down his face—

Few seemed to care,

He wondered why.

Angry looks of hatred,

Eyes of steel hiding

Hearts of stone.

Anxious look of longing

Shows a searching heart,

Open to the Lord!

Samuel, my friend,

Don’t you get yourself discouraged,

He never said that there would be no pain.

Keep pressing on,

Don’t you stop your persevering,

The love of Christ is everybody’s gain.
