What’s Your Priority?

What’s Your Priority?

Evangelism has typically not been a high priority with us “The called out, the people of God”. We are  of the mistaken idea that if people are going to be saved, God will save them–after all that’s His Job, department and business.
Most of our churches or should I say many, care very little about the people in the communities in which they are placed. The church is not the building, the church is any person who have identified with the risen Savior.  IF that was not true there would be a much greater desire,  a great effort  to see those who are going to the hell we speak and preach reached for the Kingdom of God.
Many are of the mindset that the saving of the LOST is THE JOB OF THE PASTOR, how misguided and uninformed can they be. Please, don’t get me wrong, there are churches that are cutting edge for the Kingdom but most western Christians are lazy when it comes to the spreading of the Gospel, they don’t mind marching for social change and  against injustice, and there’s a place for that, but should this be OUR  greatest priority?
 The COMMAND given by Jesus Christ to “GO he therefore and teach all nations” as found in  Matthew 28:19 was not given to a few or the frozen but it was given to all who are BORN AGAIN, if you are not born again the COMMAND to you is that of REPENTANCE. “Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins”. Acts 2:38”.
 So, what’s the point you may ask, it’s this. Most churches have evangelism committees, but few people want to serve on them because they are too busy. Yet and still these “busy” people are usually the ones who find the most faults, that’s the extent of their anointing. These are the same people who would tell you how long they have been “in the way”. You need to know that “BUSY” has todo with priority, it’s not an issue of time. We give what is our priority all the time that is required.  What’s your priority?
