We who are strong have an obligation to bear with the failings of the weak, and not to please ourselves. Let each of us please his neighbor for his good, to build him up.
I heard about a church in California back in the 1970s that opened their doors to some kids on Friday night. So the street kids, the beach kids, and the hippies flocked in, many of them barefoot and dirty. And as they came in, many were encountering Christ in powerful, life-changing ways.
Well, that was fine until the church decided they were going to put brand new baby blue carpet on the floor of their sanctuary. And as you could imagine, it wasn’t long before these kids with their dirty feet were staining that beautiful baby blue carpet.
So in a deacon’s meeting one afternoon, the deacons said, “Pastor, we’ve got to do something about these kids. They’re messing up our baby blue carpet!” So the next Saturday, the pastor went in there and started ripping up the carpet. Somebody stopped him and said, “What are you doing?” He responded, “We don’t need this carpet but we must reach those kids!”
A church’s programs and everything they do shouldn’t be for comfort, but for the purpose of bringing people to Jesus Christ. That’s why the Church exists. Humble yourself, then, and put others first so that they can be led to Christ!
Don’t Allow Comforts To Hinder Others From Coming To Christ. Put Others First And Make It A Priority To Lead Them To Jesus!
Thank You Jesus!
