Two women come out of Walmart. A man that was standing outside, says the name of one of them. Strange, because they have never met before.
As crazy as it sounds, the guy tells her that Jesus loves her and invites her to church. The lady gets saved and receives her first bible at church.
Have you ever had a nudge to do something? Like God is telling you: do this now! You never know where those nudges may lead. Everything that we do and say has eternal repercussions. It took one person doing what he felt right for this lady to accept Christ. By the way, she has now been a Christian for 10 years.
Imagine for a second if that man had never said anything. If he didn’t respond to that little nudge. They happen all the time. Sometimes as strange as outside of Walmart. Other times less obvious like when we’re at church in between services. Imagine what would happen if we all talked to the person sitting alone in our church’s pew.
it’s super hard to be the new person in church. Unless you’ve grown up in the same church your whole life, it’s likely you know what I’m talking about. Perhaps this person just moved from out of town and found your church online, but hasn’t connected with anyone yet. Go ahead, connect. Say hi. Be friendly.
Don’t be shy if you get a nudge.
Yes, you’re in charge of the technical side of things, but don’t forget about the people side of church. We are all looking for a place to belong.
