What is the world is going on in the CHURCH today? We have more people in the world than ever before, but less people in the church! We have more people talking about reaching people for Christ, but less people doing so. When will Christians decide that enough is enough and they will get busy about the misinstry of witnessing of the Lord Jesus Christ to a lost and dying world. I get so frustrated because I talk about this until I am blue in the face and it goes in one ear and out of the other. Is it going to take another tragedy like 9/11 to get people to focus on the Lord and the things that are Holy? I don't know and I pray not, but it seems like it is going to take something bigger than what is going on right now to cause people to turn back to God. It seems that in our present condition of drought it would cause people to look to God but I don't see any signs of this happening. Jesus commanded us in Matthew 28:19 that we are to go and to teach those that don't know Him about Him and by doing so they will come to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ. Then they are to be baptized. My pray is, "Lord, give me a heart for the lost and give me opportunity to share with them your save grace and mercy."
