I know....I'm late again. Sorry guys.

So, I have been working a lot of overtime lately and just been overwhelmed with everything else in life in general. Can I get an Amen?

So, I posted one a few days ago about going to Ohio on a mission trip. I have been thinking about how we as Christians are supposed to witness to others whether we are on a mission trip or not. God calls us to spread his Gospel to the ends of the Earth.

For most of us, we are constantly around people who need to hear the things of God. We work with them, go to school with them, whatever. Do you try to talk to people about God? The place where I work has a mix of all kinds of different people. I work for a millwright company and spend my days in the shop welding and fabricating different things. The guys I work with come from all different walks of life. Some of the guys I work with have been to prison, some were raised in church, some have addiction problems, the list goes on.

I made it a goal to talk to every one of them about the Gospel in some capacity. Every one of them was receptive to what I had to say. One of them told me he wasn't interested, but still sat and talked to me for half an hour. I was a little taken back by how many had no idea what the true Gospel was. I can't say that all of them were hanging on every word I said but at least they have now heard the truth.

We are commanded as Christians to be like Christ and to show His love. What better way to show love than to tell someone how to get to Heaven and have eternal life?!? The world we live in says that Christianity is no longer true or relevant. Let's be rebels! Think about what it would look like if the church stood up for what we believed in and actually started doing the work we signed up for in the first place.

So many people just check the boxes nowadays and really believe that they are ok. Being a Christianity demands so much more than going to a church building once or twice a week. Christianity is an active faith. It is a faith of momentum. We must be faithful in our sanctification and lead others to a saving knowledge of our Lord.

I have met loads of people that have such a horrible view of churches today. I believe that this stems a lot from the fact that we simply do a terrible job of showing what church is. More is caught than taught right? If we are Christians who go to church to worship a thrice holy God, shouldn't we be more excited about it during the week when we are around people that don't get to experience the same? We should be busting at the seams to tell them about what we get to do every Sunday morning.

The church body has just fell asleep it seems. There are a few out there who still have the same zeal they did when they started but not many. I am reminded of Leonard Ravenhill when thinking about how to wake the church up again. He was a British preacher who preached a lot of sermons on revival of the church body and how this needs to happen in order for others to start seeing the things of God. He was so passionate about revival for not only churches but individuals alike.

I'll wrap this one up, but as I do, think about how you can better spread the Gospel to other people. If you don't know how, get ahold of me and we will discuss how. It's a lot easier than you think and incredibly rewarding. Have a good night everybody.
