JUST ONE MAN
Have you noticed that every time something is done, somebody dit\ it?
And have you ever had- a glimpse of g1-ory that whispers, "Other people a-re
doing great things, making things happen, why not me?" Well why not?
In every organization, especially in the church of our Lord Jesus
Christ, there are three kinds of people - those who make things happen,
those who watch things happen and those who don't even know anything is
Canada and Switzerland combined couldn't hold all the spiritual draft
dodgers whose names are on the church rolls but have lost their way down
life's tiresome and dusty detours. They are tired, bored, scared and lonely.
They frantically seek happiness in bottles, needles, pills, thrills and
games. They have found that the world's pick-me-ups always let them down.
Some of these people come to church, sit through nervously clocked hours of
religious entertainment, often finding it not very entertaining and plod
out the back door, thinking: "I didn't get anything out of that." Inscribe
this indelibly on your heart, as long as you approach everything from the
standpoint of what you are going to get out of it, then, my friend, you will
miss life. You will never make things happen, you won't even have the
ability to see things happen, you will walk right by a million miracles and
not even know anything is happening.
Also, in the church, are those who watch things happen. Content to be
spectators they are happy to see the victo-ries and crushed by the defeats.
They are definitely on the Lord's side. They sit in the stands, wave their
penants and give three cheers for Jesus.
All the while our Lord is calling us to the field, pleading with us to
put on the equipment and get in the game.
And there are the folk of faith who make things happen. Shiloh Terrace
is full of people like this.
