I recently came upon an article written about interviews done with unchurched non-Christians. And it gave their perspective of Christians. I think it’s interesting to listen to people who identify themselves as non-Christians, not because of their absence of Christ, but how do they believe and how might I better be a witness to them.
Luke 10:2 Jesus said “The harvest is abundant, but the workers are few. Therefore, pray to the Lord of the harvest to send out workers into His harvest.”
From the research and interviews done a few that caught my attention were: (1) Christians are against more things than they are for. “It just seems to me Christians are mad the world and made at each other. They are so negative, they seem unhappy. I have no desire to be like them and stay upset all the time.” (2) “I really can’t tell what a Christian believes because he doesn’t seem much different than other people know. The only exception would be Mormons. They really seem to take their beliefs seriously.” (3) “I really would like to visit a church, but I’m not particularly comfortable going by myself. What is weird is that I am 32 years old, and I’ve never had a Christian invite me to church in my entire life.”
These are just a few things of the things that were listed from the research done. And I could not stop thinking about this article and how as a Christian am I really carrying out what Jesus talks about in Luke Chapter 10?
Satan is the author of excuses. There is no reason to wait to reach those who don’t know Jesus Christ. The harvest is waiting. And the Lord of the harvest has prepared the way.
God is opening doors of opportunity, we just need to see them.
