Here are 3 lessons I learned the first time I flew in an airplane:
Earlier this year I was talking with a friend who admitted that he had never fully entered into a contract with God. In fact, what he specifically said was that he couldn’t say that he had ever fully surrendered everything to the Lord Jesus.
My hunch is that many who call themselves Christians like my friend, have never fully surrendered to the Lord. Perhaps they’ve been Christians for decades and faithfully attend church and sing the great old hymn, “I Surrender All.” But down deep, when push comes to shove, they have to admit that they’re holding back a part or many parts of their lives.
Irreconcilable differences are often cited as “grounds for divorce.” Obviously, some couples really struggle in this arena. That makes sense to me, but not completely. Carolyn and I were married on August 4, 1979—so we’re about to celebrate 38 years of marriage. Over the years, we’ve learned how to cope with and even appreciate our differences.
Leaving aside the excesses, I believe, as a pastor, missionary and Bible teacher, that Christians should be some of the most positive thinking people in the world.
Here are 7 reasons Christianity provides the ultimate in positive thinking:
On my first trip to India I encountered a happy boy and learned about joy. It was a missionary trip in 2000, when we stayed with a widow who had a nice home and a shack out back. In the small hut lived a family of three: mother, father and a boy of about 4 years old. They cared for the landscaping and house, and cooked their food over an open fire beside their small hovel.
Similar to these 3 parts of construction, there are 3 parts to evangelism and all are necessary. The job of “making disciples” isn’t finished without all 3.
They’ve been called the 3 P’s of Evangelism.
The 3 P’s of Evangelism are not pressure, pushiness and pridefulness!
Scripture does not condemn borrowing. However, it does warn that, “the borrower is the slave of the lender.” (Proverbs 22:7 ESV) We have never known that kind of bondage.
