7/5/11 church people
Although God has blessed me with faithfullness in keeping my daily witnessing goal over the long holiday weekend, I haven't been reaching my writing goal - every other day - mainly because my conversations have been very similar to each other and its been hard to think of something noteworthy to write about. I try to talk with people who live reasonable close to our church in order to invite them to church when they are responding positively to the Gospel. However because of the makeup of the neighborhood this means that most have common beliefs in God and salvation by church affiliation and/or good works. But the similarity of these conversations doesn't mean they are not important - they can be very important to the people we talk with. We don't have to drive to another state to huge sporting events or concerts to share the Gospel - wherever there are people there are opportunities - and we must not let anything stop us from sharing Jesus - not fear, laziness, busyness, or even boredom. There is nothing boring about the Gospel unless we are led by our own selfish motivations for "success" rather than letting the Holy Spirit guide us, and besides, if nothing else fear trumps boredom everytime.
