Attitude Tune_up!

“…though I am free and belong to no man, I make myself a slave to everyone, to win as many as possible. To the Jews I became like a Jew, to win the Jews… I have become all things to all men so that by all possible means I might save some…” 1 Cor 9:19, 20a, 22b NKJV [italics & emphasis mine]

I read a story about a wealthy businessman who would pay people to dine with him and hear gospel talk; he talked to fellow wealthy businessmen, statesmen and poor homeless people all the same. Yet I hear other stories of wealthy Tele_Pastors/Evangelist whom when you invite, you have to fly them first class, prepare limo ride from the airport and book them 5 star hotel, otherwise do your own gospel campaign for they won’t come.

Now compare these two contrasting attitudes and that of Paul in the above scripture; how many believers do you know (including yourself ;-) who will go out of their way to win the lost soul? We serve God and preach the gospel ‘when it is convenient’ to us. Where have we lost the ‘sacrificial attitude’? Have we forgotten that most of us got saved because someone went out of his/her way to reach out to us? Remember: “…for everything you get free, someone paid for it…”

That is very true Tim, I guess the issue about the tele-speakers, is that they are used to pay-per-programme and their minds are tuned into that business model. It is a bit of problem trying to see things using the scrificial model. what a shame!
