I really like this interview with Roseria, author and speaker. She has some great points that we as Christians need to wake up and embrace.
- "The pastor turned off the air conditioning and served the food that I wanted"
- "He actually did not share the gospel and he did not invite me to church." (He was the gospel)
Oh dear, dear friends, this is where we as Christians have failed so many times. That is, in not having an open house and open life to people. The church is supposed to be a hospital to sinners. We are to embrace them as people. Love them, not live like them. We are to feed them, clothe them, take the time for them, open our home to them. We can do all this without being like them or doing what they do.
Be real! They need to know it's not a quick fix, but a journey, in following the Savior.
Take the time to listen to this. Remember to "chew the meat" and "spit out the bones". - Rejoicing in the Present
