where is the line to celebrate Jesus?
are we inviting anyone to his party?
for a man who raised the dead, healed the sick, cured the blind, forgave all sin, and resurrected from the dead - i'm sure that he'd have no problem filling up any venue. yet why is it so difficult to grab the attention of those who don't know Christ?
could it be that i'm not inviting anyone to the greatest celebration on earth?
could it be that i'm not celebrating Christ in my daily lifestyle?
could it be that i truly don't believe that what Jesus did then, he can do now?
these are the questions i posed to the students. as i thought about stuff later on, i thought it fair to ask myself and the rest of the 'grown up' blog world - why aren't we inviting others to Christ more often?
i thought to myself that perhaps its because...
of what they might here or see. cop out.
of what they might like or dislike. cop out.
of what they might understand or not understand. cop out.
the reason they are a cop out: whether the church experience is right for them or not, you and i have been placed there intentionally to clarify the matter. it's just easier to not invite anyone - there's less work on my part that way and i can pass the blame. it's a cop out, again.
let me ask: why?
why don't we invite others more often?
why don't we reflect this celebration more often?
why do we choose the easy route and blame others instead?
help me out. why?
