Christian – do you know that most high school and uni students think that the Theory of Evolution is a proven scientific fact?  Do you know that they don’t even know it is called the Theory of Evolution?  It has somehow along the way become simply “Evolution” and accepted as fact.

Christian – do you know that most heavy metal rockers are intelligent, deep thinkers who do not fit into society?  That these “outcasts” are angry at a world that they can’t fit into and are open to the gospel.  Some of the best, most articulate conversations I have had are with these guys.

Christian – do you know that most Westerners who accept Buddhism and its teachings do so because they think it’s all about peace and love and have no idea of the real teachings of the Seen Ha, karma, the wheel of suffering and reincarnation.

Christian – do you know that most youth are looking for direction?  That they cover up their fear with mockery.  Do you know that if you persist with them as a mother or father would and speak the truth (even hard truths) to them in love that the mockery and fear will break away and they will come to respond to the gospel and even respect you for it?

Christian – do you know that a lot of people will actually thank you for taking the time to speak to them on the street?

 

“Preach abroad…It is the cooping yourselves up in rooms that has damped the work of God, which never was and never will be carried out to any purpose without going out into the highways and hedges and compelling them to come in.”  John Wesley

 

Love & blessings to you

  1. I cannot cannot cannot express how timely these words are for me… Just now I am seating in a place where I am being exposed to a behaviour completely opposing the gospel, feeling totally uncomfortable… OMG! What is wrong with me?

    This post is a reminder from my Father as to why I am here in the first place… Blessings to you for sending this into cyber space in such a timely manner…

    • Wow Monika! Praise God – He is so good. Your comment has really encouraged me, thank you. The Holy Spirit totally gave me this post, He just told me what to write and I wrote. It was for you. I believe it’s a good thing for us to feel uncomfortable sometimes. If we are too comfortable we soon go to sleep. God wants us out of our comfort zone. Blessings to you for hearing His voice and going out into hard situations. Belinda

  2. I came across this today and thought of your post:

    “The “show business,” which is so incorporated into our view of Christian work today, has caused us to drift far from Our Lord’s conception of discipleship. It is instilled in us to think that we have to do exceptional things for God; we have not. We have to be exceptional in ordinary things, to be holy in mean streets, among mean people, surrounded by sordid sinners. That is not learned in five minutes.”
    ― Oswald Chambers
