Preaching sounds like only ‘preachers’ can do it.
Sharing sounds like the exchange of good ideas or new recipes or secrets on where the fish are biting.
But telling. Ah telling. That sounds like talking about something that I can’t wait to tell you about. Like an amazing thing that happened in my life. Let me tell you about it. Or about something I witnessed that I’m sure no one has ever noticed before. Let me tell you about it.
Tonight at 6:30, I’ll start a three-week series on the Essentials in Telling the Gospel. If Jesus left us on the planet to tell others, then how come they don’t know yet? Why do we spend so much time, energy, resources on Christians talking to other Christians each week in really nice buildings, while people drive or walk right by us unnoticed, untouched and unchanged. This isn’t about guilt. It’s about a decision we need to make.
I’ll do my part to help you with the information you’ll need. Truth is, God does most of the work. But He does need us. It’s His plan, to allow us to be a part of the process.
Three Monday nights. That’s the only commitment you need to get started.
