I can still remember the first time I stood in front of a group, opened the Bible and brought a message…I suspect you can, too. It was an Easter Sunrise Service, there were over a thousand people present, I was a new Christian, only 16 years old.
In retrospect, I am surprised I was asked to share a short devotional in this setting at my young age. I was not aware of the gravity of what I was asked to do. I just thought it was “cool” and enjoyed presenting some thoughts from God’s Word.
