"I preached that they should repent and...prove their repentance by their deeds." Acts 26:20.

Some evangelists asked me:
"Why don't we see more of the kind of converts coming into today's church that we used to get a few decades ago...those who from the very start seem 'out and out' for Jesus?" 

I replied that I thought it had something to do with the way we present the truths of Christianity to potential converts.

A butterfly, struggling to get out of its chrysalis, was given a helping hand by a well-meaning observer. 

As a result, however, the butterfly was unable to fly-
- because it is in the struggle to emerge that it develops the strength to soar. 

The observer, intent on making it easy for the butterfly to leave the chrysalis, inadvertently contributed to its early demise. 

We do something similar when we help people avoid the struggle that radical repentance invariably brings. 

The modern-day church (with some exceptions) is like an inexpert midwife bringing damaged children into the world-
- damaged by lack of attention to basic principles. 

To return to the metaphor of the butterfly-
- in the church today there are many butterflies unable to fly because when they emerged from their spiritual chrysalis someone made it easier  for them than they should have. 

We can do that by-
- wrong statements or 
- incomplete statements or 
- even by a misplaced emphasis. 

Evangelism is making it easy for men and women to be saved.
But we must be careful that we do not make it easier than it should be.

"In all your ways acknowledge Him, and he will make your paths straight." Proverbs 3:6.

Do you know that you make a fool of yourself when you argue with an ass? 

The Bible tells of a man named Balaam in the Old Testament in Numbers 22. 

He was headed in the wrong direction. 
He wanted to please himself and was ignoring God, so God finally spoke to Balaam through his donkey. 

He was furiously mad at the animal! 

He argued with it and almost beat the poor animal to death until he realized that God was trying to speak to him through the donkey, to help him get on the right path.

Sometimes-
God will go to extraordinary means to get our attention when we are hell-bent in going our own self-destructive way. 

It could come through a financial jolt or through a rebellious child. 

When those times come, getting angry may be foolish.
But taking time to listen may be the key to seeking God's guidance about the right way to go. 

Is God trying to get your attention to keep you from making a fool of yourself? 

Take time to listen!
He'll change your course and get you where you need to go.

"There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit." Romans 8:1.

What does it mean to be "in Christ Jesus?"

Think about what it was for Noah to be in the ark.
The ark was waterproof.

How do we know it was?
God told Noah, "put pitch on the inside and on the outside." Genesis 6:14.

The word"pitch in the Hebrew is "kapar! "
It is exactly the same word translated as"atonement. "
 
We are in Jesus as Noah was in that ark.

Just as the storms of God's wrath beat upon that ark-
 the storms of God's wrath beat upon the Lord Jesus.

But-
We are on the inside!
And not one drop of judgment can come through.

"Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?

As it is written:
For Your sake we are killed all day long;
We are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.
Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. 
For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come,nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord." Romans 35-39.

Reflect on the things Paul says which will never separate you from God's love.

Give glory to God that your sins have been atoned by the righteous blood of the Saviour.

"You will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth." 
Acts 1:8.      

I met a young man not long ago who dives for exotic fish for aquariums. 

He said one of the most popular aquarium fish is the shark.

He explained that if you catch a small shark and confine it-
- it will stay a size proportionate to the aquarium. 

Sharks can be six inches long yet fully matured. 

But if you turn them loose in the ocean-
- they grow to their normal length of eight feet.

That also happens to some Christians. 

I've seen the cutest little six-inch Christians who swim around in a little puddle. 

But if you put them into a larger arena- into the whole creation-only then can they become great.

Jesus commanded all believers to "go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything [he has] commanded." Matthew 28:19-20.

There is no room to grow inside the walls of a Sunday School classroom, church building, or your own home. 

We have been called to go outside of those walls and reach out to the lost world that needs to know Jesus.

Get involved in doing missions and evangelism-
- in your neighbourhood, city, or state through your church, local seniors group, or Bible study class. 

If you are physically unable to get involved-
- become a prayer warrior for the cause of Christ. 

Your prayers are needed both on and off the mission field.

Get out of the puddle you've been swimming in!
And take your faith to a larger arena-the world.

Pray that God would open the doors for you to reach out to those who are lost in your Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria, and the ends of the earth.

My Manna

But those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength;They shall mount up with wings like eagles,They shall run and not be weary,They shall walk and not faint." Isaiah 40:31.

I don't like to wait in long lines-
- at banks,post offices, being stuck in traffic during rush hour, 
- or being put on hold by a computer. 

Waiting time seems to be a waste of time. 

This is why waiting on God is-
- so difficult for many believers to do. 

That's also why many people quote the verse that is not in the Bible, "God helps those who help themselves." 

That's secular counselling!
It’s not scriptural counselling!

The statement speaks to the lack of faith-
- how God needs us to take charge to get things done.

But one thing's for sure: 

What we need to do is-
- to trust God and 
- be willing to do His will, in His timing, not our own. Hebrews 10:36.

For the right action at the right time equals the right result. 

Waiting on God is tough.
But God's timing is always best for us, and for others.

Waiting time should not  be a waste of time. 
"Rest in the Lord and wait patiently for Him..." Psalm 37:7.
