Do you know someone who became a Christian & was 'on fire' for Jesus, but who now given up on God? Why does that happen? Were they just pretending all along? And more worryingly, could the same thing happen anyone?
Building a strong, healthy church that genuinely makes a difference is really hard work. It intrudes on our time, drains our energy and depletes our resources. So why should we bother? Wouldn't it be easier to settle for what we already have?
Are you tempted to think that evangelism is about having the skills to effortlessly turn conversations to Jesus? Is there a more biblical view which encourages us all to see we can play our part in mission?
