Go & Tell 

Different statistics are given for the number of Christians that have never led anyone to Christ, but all of those statistics are terribly high. Can you imagine the shape a business would be in if they ran their business this way? I can hear the voices during a meeting at a department store. the manager begins the meeting by relating the most recent procedures in effective salesmanship. He teaches them about the product and the best way to present it to the customer. After his thoughtful presentation is over, he asks the employees if they have any questions or comments. Responses:

In the corner, a lady doing her nails responds to the pep talk with: "Really, you don't expect me to leave the break room, do you? I only took this job because I enjoyed the fellowship here, and if you want me to stay, you'd better not bring up work again!"

At the front of the room, a rather scholarly-looking gentleman looked up from his notepad and said, "I find all that you are saying to be interesting. I'm so glad I came to this symposium today, but I just don't feel qualified to sell. After all, there is so much to know. I'm afraid I would say the wrong thing."

Over near the mirror, Valley Valerie finally quits teasing her hair to say, "Like, I'm not on this selling trip, you know. I mean, really, I might offend someone if I come on too strong. And besides, like, some of my friends might call me a 'selling freak' or something!"

Finally, Shy Sally, in her little squeaky voice summed up the sentiments of the rest: "I would like to be a more effective sales person, but I'm afraid someone might reject me. Besides, aren't you paid to run the store?"

And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. [19] Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: [20] Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.Matthew 28:18-20 KJV
