Is Anyone Even Listening?
Posted by Pastor Szekely on June 18, 2007
I’d really like to hear from you on this…
Are you, or have you been lately, seeing souls repenting and believing on the Lord Jesus Christ to be their Saviour?
I’ve personally been having some “great and effectual doors” opened for me to witness and preach the Gospel, one-on-one and en masse, and I rejoice in it…but, let’s just say it’s been a while since I’ve seen a lost soul truly realize their need to be delivered from their sin debt and trust in the Lord Jesus to be their payment for that debt.
Now I know it could be said that to get a harvest one must first plant and water. And maybe South-central Nebraska [where I’m located] is not yet “white unto harvest”. And maybe I should realize that I live in a small village [pop. 398 – salute!] and don’t have many people in our area. And maybe I should just be concerned about me being a faithful witness and “not worry” about the results because results are up to God. Maybe, maybe, maybe…
Is anyone listening to the Gospel in your “neck of the woods”? How are they responding to the Gospel? Are they faithful and wanting to grow after there’s a profession of faith?
Are we seeing new converts today, or are we seeing retreads in our churches – ones who went another church and came already with a profession of faith? Now I’m certainly not against that, but I ask this question just to see if new converts are more of the ones being added unto churches.
I’d love to hear from you on this – what’s going on where you’re at – is anyone even listening?
