I have a small thought/ question and I wanted to get your thoughts.... (hey Don I'm not posting my web site :tongue3: ) We have "Missionary moments" on Sunday morning and we talk about the missionaries in the SBC (in the states and out) and almost every week they talk about the people groups, and how they "reach out" to them and so on...I never really hear about folks sitting down and sharing the gospel and praying with folks to receive Jesus into their hearts. We support 4 missionaries in our church that are all over the place, 2 in Mexico, 1 in Bangladesh, 1 in Arkansas and we get monthly reports about the work they are doing...but never a report about hey I sat down with 2 folks this last month, and shared the gospel (actually talked about it.) and they got saved. I made a personal goal to share the gospel with at least one person and see them get saved. I have got to be apart of watching 4 people give their hearts to Jesus. My question is do you think we're missing it when it comes to missions in the SBC, and Missionary is just another "job" that we go to everyday? Along with traveling and speaking when I'm not doing that I work for a I.T. firm and I work with 3 atheists, and 2 of them have been to church with me. They have both said to me "if Christians were more like you, I don't think I'd be as 'pissed off at them' ". Now I'm not 100% what that means...I stand firm for the Gospel with each of them, and they know where I stand on issues...but yet they have been to church with me on several occasions. In fact one of them told me 2 days ago that "I think I need to make a change in my life...this stuff about Jesus is starting to make since" Why is it that other folks in church are not as excited and passionate about sharing the gospel? Stats show that 11% of FOLLOWERS OF JESUS share the gospel. That means 89% are NOT! What's the deal? The thing that really causes me concern is that alot of missionaries think that feeding people and giving them water is good enough. Without the Gospel a cup of water is nice, but it's worthless. OK... i've talked long enough...thoughts?
