Matthew 27:15-66

Sinful behavior is abundant in Matthew 27:15-66. We see example after example of the people ridiculing, belittling, mocking, disparaging--rejecting--Jesus. I could almost feel the hatred and distaste for Jesus as I read. It was a powerful reminder for me of how lost our world is, and how much everyone needs Christ.

Take a minute and think about all the people you come into contact with each week--family, friends, co-workers, neighbors. How many of them need Christ? Now I know this may sound a little scary, but would you step out and invite one (or more) of these people to church this weekend? It could change their life forever. Tami W.

P.S. On this Good Friday, I hope you're able to take some time to reflect on the amazing sacrifice Jesus made on our behalf.

I share Christ when the Lord gives opportunity, then (having had to learn to) leave it within the Holy Spirit's capable hands -- my own further cajoling or nagging never accomplished anything -- I could be privileged to plant seeds, plus water with prayer -- but it was only the Holy Spirit who ever effectively convicted and actually caused any lasting change.
Currently my opportunities for sharing Christ are primarily via the internet -- as disibilities are preventing me from driving and getting around (no, I am not old -- I have MS, plus other physical complications). What I wish is that someone would take ME to church -- I've stopped asking -- people around here are just too busy -- to be honest, I don't think that's how Christ would want us to be, but it just makes me think that maybe the time for Christ's Return is drawing near -- since many of those calling themselves Christians seem to be pulling farther away from His ideals . . .
How About those of you out there who have a vehicle, take the time to go out of your way and pick up someone for church, who doesn't have a way? They might really appreciate it. . . even if they do not go (the first time), they would most likely be absolutely tickled that someone thought they were worth the effort.

Have just done so, as a matter of fact.

I've had the privilege of seeing the Lord do some life-changing work in the lives of several who are close to me. It's taken place over the course of years, and is such a blessing to see.

I will invite several to church this Sunday. I am praying now for God to open their hearts and minds so they will understand their need of our Savior. Also, remember if they say 'no' it is not you who they are rejecting, but Christ.

Jesus doesn't give up!!!!

Doug--thanks for the reminder of not just asking someone to church but also coming along side and assisting and/or even picking someone up for church. When I was growing up my dad and mom picked up 3-4 kids almost every Sunday and Wednesday (different kids in different years) who had no other way to get to church because their parents weren't interested. I hadn't thought about that for years, but now that I have, I know that this effort by my parents was appreciated and important. I will pray that someone from your church will step up and offer to get you to church going forward.
