2 Corinthians 5:19-20 NLT
For God was in Christ, reconciling the world to himself, no longer counting people's sins against them. And he gave us this wonderful message of reconciliation. So we are Christ's ambassadors; God is making his appeal through us. We speak for Christ when we plead, "Come back to God!"
If the 12 year old said I'm getting ready to clean my room and spends all her time translating the phrase and planning procedures but does not actually clean her room her father is not going to be impressed.
God has asked us to connect people to God. Are we studying how or are we doing it? Is it enough to show love? Is it enough to teach Sunday school?
Do we think we need more blood in our organization? More plans? God's Holy Spirit will help us connect people to God wherever we are. When our eyes close everything we have will belong to someone else. Unless we fix our eyes on the eternal and connect people to God it will pass away.
Take the 10 most wanted list and fill it with people God has laid on your heart and pray for them and God will make you a co-laborer with Him.
When your eyes close in death make sure your grandchildren know you were committed to faithful service to Christ.
Train others to train others for outreach. Mentor someone for Jesus.
The church is most effective outside the church. "Go and make disciples" Jesus said. Not come to church. Christians need to be discipled. They need a close relationship with Christ. Leadership is needed in all our churches.
