Activity or Avocation?
1/4/2017 12:42:00 PM by: Dr. Harlan Betz

Non-witnessing Christians have become the norm while witnessing Christians are too often the exception. Witnessing is not to be a spare-time occupation; it is to be a lifetime avocation. Witnessing is not a once-in-a-while activity; it is an all-the-time priority. Witnessing is not just something you do, it is something you are! You are either a missionary or a mission field.  If you know Christ… you are a missionary (a witness). If you do not know Christ… you are a mission field (in need of a witness).

 Most of the early disciples were fishers of men, while most of today’s disciples seem to be content to be keepers of the aquarium.  Don’t settle for just worshiping; commit yourself to witnessing. Ask God to give you a burden for the lost. Ask God to give you opportunities to share the good news of His love and His offer of eternal life. Don’t settle for mingling with men, be a fisher of men.

Don’t let witnessing simply be an activity, make it your avocation! We have good news, and good news must be shared with others!
