In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father in heaven. (Matthew 5:16 NRSV)
There is a huge steam locomotive that stands in a museum at Greenfield Village, Detroit, Michigan. Beside this complicated piece of machinery is a sign showing boiler pressure, size and number of wheels, horsepower, lengths, weight and more. The bottom line indicates that 96% of the power generated was used to move the locomotive and only 4% was left to pull the load. Some churches are like that. Ninety-six per cent of the effort expended by church members is spent looking after the church. Barely four percent is expended bringing others to Christ.

Please let the message of Christ work through you to touch those who need Christ.


Dear God, may I not just be a caretaker of the church, but move me to share Christ boldly. AIn Jesus name, men.
