Yesterday I wrote about how my family and friends worshiped together on a Sunday morning while on a 7-day cruise. What I didn’t tell you was that we were on a balcony that was off of one couple’s room. It was such a beautiful setting, looking out over the vast sea and enjoying the early morning warmth of the sun’s rays.
As we read Scripture and sang songs together, I couldn’t help but wonder if anyone sitting on a nearby balcony could hear us worshiping the Lord. I was reminded of how the jailer in the prison where Paul and Silas were praying and singing later asked these men how to be saved (Acts 16:25-34).
Sometimes the best way for people to accept the gospel is to overhear it. This can only happen when we are speaking it.
