A Publishing Life

Imagine this: There is a knock on your front door. You carefully study the figure on your front porch then unlock the door. It is your neighbor’s teenage son. He has come with some mail that had been incorrectly delivered. He takes one look through into your home, sees the “Lord, make me a blessing today” wall hanging, smirks, and leaves. “Now did that look mean?” you wonder. “Does he not believe God exists?”

Maybe not. Or maybe what he finds amusing is you.

Have you been a blessing to him? Or have you been too busy putting out signs and campaigning about Christianity to answer God’s call to service.

Perhaps the real reason Christians often have trouble getting nonbelievers to trust what the Bible says is they do not see it working in our lives.

Have you been publishing the gospel with your life?
