Aren’t we all more prone to believe what we see versus what we hear? I love to be told I am loved but to be shown puts me on cloud nine. What if God only told us He loved us? Which means He would not have sent Jesus to die for our sins. We would all be dead and headed to a fiery hell. It would be near impossible to believe He loves us. This is only an analogy. Never will I question God’s love for us. But so it is with Christians, we shouldn’t have to tell people who we are. Our lives should be true evidence.
We are commanded to worship on the first day of the week and partake of the Lord’s Supper. The bare minimum is to attend Sunday morning service and sometimes Sunday evening worship and Wednesday night bible class is a stretch. We show up week after week, month after month, year after year as a symbol of our Faith. God is pleased, but is it enough?
I realized I attend worship services regularly, but God requires more. I realized after being a faithful member in church all these years, I have not shared the gospel in such a way a single person has wanted to give his/her life to Christ. I am not fulfilling God’s main purpose for saving my soul. We are not Christians to carry the title or to share the gospel only with people we know. We are created to go to “the hood”, the jailhouse, the homeless communities, the grocery store, wherever there is life and share our Relationship with God. I want to be who God wants me to be. I want him to use me to serve others, to spend time with those who are facing adversity, to be a true light. We can’t be a light if we confine our works in a church building.
