One of the few

One of the few…………

Proverbs says without a vision the people perish. Truer words were never spoken but just as the people perish without the vision, the vision without people will perish. As the church we are an army not an audience. There is fighting to be done and many are willing to fight the good fight of faith, but just as Nehemiah built the walls of Jerusalem with a tool in one hand and a sword in the other, we are to labor as well as fight. Most (not all) have the sword in one hand, fighting the good fight but the other hand is holding the “people just don’t want anything to do with church any more” crutch. It’s time to lay down that crutch and pick up the hammer and build as we fight. Jesus didn’t say, no one is interested, He said the harvest is plenteous, but the laborers are few. The problem wasn’t with the harvest but with the labor. My simple prayer for the day, God I want to be one of the few.
