Just Do It

"You are to go into all the world and preach [communicate] the good news to everyone everywhere."1

One writer pointed out that there is a scene in "Winnie the Pooh" that goes something like the following:

Pooh: "Did you fall into the river, Eeyore?"

Eeyore: "Silly of me, wasn't it?"

Pooh: "Is the river uncomfortable this morning?"

Eeyore: "Well, yes, the dampness you know."

Pooh: "You really ought to be more careful!"

Eeyore: "Thanks for the advice."

Pooh: "I think you're sinking."

Eeyore: "Pooh, if it's not too much trouble, would you mind rescuing me?"

How sad when people all around us, among other things, are lost without Christ and we discuss outreach, form outreach committees, conduct seminars on outreach, read books about outreach, and do everything in the church except outreach.

Somebody else said, "If you see a poisonous snake in your kitchen, just kill it. Don't appoint a committee on snakes!" Just kill it—or at least relocate it to a safe place!

And as Meg Stawinski says in her book, Confessions of a Supermarket Evangelist, about a church she used to attend, as you exited the church parking lot, there was a sign that read: "You are now entering the mission field."

Suggested prayer: "Dear God, every day please help me to be 'as Christ' in some way to every life I touch—no matter where I am—and always be prepared to share a timely word about You as opportunity presents itself. And grant that our home will always be a house of blessing to all who enter in. Thank You for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, in Jesus's name, amen."

1. Jesus in the Gospel of Mark 16:15 (TLBNLT)
