I just had to go to the "do not call" website to deal with the dozens of unwanted faxes the church gets every week. Faxes for everything from health insurance to roof repair to cruises to Alaska! It is amazing how many faxes like this we were getting. It seems that everyone with a business and a fax machine wants to tell us about how much better they can make our lives.

What I find even more interesting is that we as Christians truly have something (Christ) that can make everyone's life better and we don't tell anyone! Wouldn't it be great is Christians had the same willingness to share Jesus with people they don't even know the way these businesses do? You bet it would.

Well, I don't expect people to tell complete strangers about Jesus (I am a realist), but I think it is high time we talked to our friends, family, neighbors, and coworkers about the Man who can make such a difference in their lives. Come on, if a business who doesn't know me from Adam can try to sell us on their product or service, can't we tell those we know (and love) about Jesus? Just so you know, the Bible says we should!

The Bible tells us to do a lot of things we don't seem to do. We commit a lot more sins of ommission than sins of commission.
We do need to spend some time telling people about Christ. I will make it a point to do that this week and let you know how it went.
