So wild flowers will come
up where you are.
You have been stony for
too many years.
Try something different.
Telling people that “Jesus loves them” is like a hungry man smelling food. But the problem is that many of our church’s are filled with the smell of Christianity, and when the hungry man comes looking for a meal, they find empty buildings lit with candles that smell like the meal they were promised.
We need to show people the meal of hope, the meal of Grace. We have to be willing to give a meal to those who hunger for knowledge and truth. Who need something more than just a friendly smile on a Sunday. We need to show people the Gospel.
We are all hungry for something more, let’s show others that the love of Jesus comes with something more than an aroma, it comes with a promise of you never going hungry again."
T.B. LaBerge // Jesus, His Grace and the Gospel
Always a good reminder.
