Spectator Christians

This we have heard: “I am a born again Christian, and I am happy that my sins are forgiven. I go to church on Sunday because I like the fellowship!” We ask, “Do you not go to put yourself in the way of spiritual blessing?” The answer is, “No, I am saved, and I do not need anything!” We ask, “Have you offered to witness, to pray, to encourage, to assist, to participate in your church’s life and outreach?” The answer” “No; my church seems to get along very well without my help!” Brethren, this “non-participation” kind of faith is a strange parody on Bible Christianity. Men and women who say they are believers just cancel themselves out. Is it something we have learned from the sporting events? The great majority are spectators; they come and sit! If there is any true spiritual life within us, God will give us a gift of some kind, and the humble soul will find something to do for God!

Verse

By love serve one another. Galatians 5:13

Prayer

Lord, I want to be a full contact Christian. I will not sit on the bench.
