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.  Go
ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the
Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:  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
