We live in a world with 7 ½ billion people in it, each individual is a soul that is important to God. As Christians we are told, to let our lights shrine before men (Mathew 5:16). So we need to be very aware of our actions, because in an unchurched world, the only church some people are going to be exposed to is us, which will allow the Christ in us to shine forth.
People are watching us, whether we recognize it or not and many times they are watching to see what we do wrong, so they can bring an accusation against Christianity.
In a world full of strangers, first impressions do count and many times people are gone in less than 60 seconds. A smile goes a long way, especially to that person who thinks no-one cares about them.
The bible says that we should be very mindful of how we behave around strangers:
Heb 13:2 Stop neglecting to show hospitality to strangers, for by showing hospitality some have had angels as their guests without being aware of it.
This modern day society that we live in promotes such a selfish agenda, that people have lost concern for others because they are so busy going after the last this or the latest that, the bigger house or the faster car, the private education for the kids or the next holiday. Now I am not saying that having these things is wrong, but if that is all you are about and you do not have a heart for the lost, then that is a big problem:
2Ti 3:1 What People will be Like in the Last Days
You must realize, however, that in the last days difficult times will come.
2Ti 3:2 People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy,
2Ti 3:3 unfeeling, uncooperative, slanderous, degenerate, brutal, hateful of what is good,
2Ti 3:4 traitors, reckless, conceited, and lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God.
2Ti 3:5 They will hold to an outward form of godliness but deny its power. Stay away from such people.
Everyday people are dying and going to a lost eternity, we have a responsibility as people with the GOOD NEWS to share it. It should not be a religious activity we do, but it should be a hearts cry!
We need to stop letting other people intimidate us and stop us from opening our mouths. We should stop being so afraid to offend someone, that we just stand by and watch them die. The gospel is an offense to those that are dying but salvation to others. We need to stop operating out of a spirit of FEAR but of POWER LOVE and a SOUND MIND!
The enemy wants us to keep our mouths closed, so open them!
He wants us to remain passive, so be spiritually aggressive!
He wants us to compromise, so be sold out to the truth!
He wants us to be weak, so operate in Christ so that you are strong!
It is time to put on our battle clothes as it states in Ephesians 6 and get into the battle, because the majority of people we meet on the street are Gone In 60 Seconds!
Parallel Business Principles
There are so many people out there who are struggling in the health and finances; we have a responsibility to build our businesses effectively.
People have lost hope, so we need to be visible so we can bring some of that hope back.
We need to stop letting our fears keep our mouths closed, but we need to let love push the words out.
You never know who is around you and what their needs are and unless you open your mouths you will never know.
You have to have a genuine passion for helping people in order to do this business, because there are going to be times where you feel challenged and tested and it is only then that what is down in the well will come up in the bucket!
Remember if you do what you are supposed to be doing then God will bless the work of your hands, but if you sow nothing, there is nothing to harvest.
