Preacher and writer John Bunyan, (The Pilgrim’s Progress and Grace abounding to the Chief of Sinners), surrendered to Christ after living what he called a “morally reprehensible life” without God. In 1653 he was received into the Congregational Church and began preaching about his new life in Christ. When he began preaching in Bedford, England, in 1660, he was arrested and imprisoned for preaching without a license from the Anglican Church. Though Bunyan was confined to prison for more than twelve years, his voice was never silenced.
This week, ask yourself whether you could be found guilty of telling of the love of Jesus.
