Could it be that simple?
Jesus says two important things: Come to Me and then Go out to others.
We seem to get so distracted by side church issues that we lose our focus on what is most important. I think that is probably the way that the evil one crafts his plans and smirks at his success in our distraction.
Simple and hard and so worth our focus.
He answered, "'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind'; and, 'Love your neighbor as yourself.'"
Loving God is the start.
Be in the Word.
Talk to Him.
Listen to Him.
Be led by Him.
He helps us to be molded into people with hearts that can love the world around us with unselfishness and abandon.
Most of us stop there. I sure have.
When we get to the making disciples part we slow down and shake and make excuses and look away. But, the more I dwell in His Word and gain strength and knowledge and movement of His Spirit in my heart and mind the more that I believe that I can witness to His goodness and His saving plan not only for myself but for ALL who would believe.
What if each of us in our humble, even scared minds asked God to just give us one person to study with and share the hope of Jesus with?
Just one. Imagine.
Luke 9:60- Go and proclaim the Kingdom of God.
Just one Father. Just one. I pray You show us just one.
