What if…?

I work for a utility software company.  We have salesmen that have territories that they cover for sales and service.

As I was glancing over the map of each of their service areas I thought to myself; I can do that!

Of course I know nothing about software but I do know about the love of Jesus!    

“For God so love the world that he gave his one and only son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” (John 3:16, NIV)

What if?  I took one section of town and worked each neighborhood over a period of time.

What if?  I volunteered at a local nursing home.

What if?  I helped with a children’s ball team.

What if?  I volunteered at the Salvation Army.

What if?  I volunteered at a local school’s reading program.

What if?  We dedicated ourselves to HIS service.

What if?  Each of us took one small part of our state, city or neighborhood and shared the love of Jesus!

“Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God’s grace in its various forms.  If anyone speaks, he should do it as one speaking the very words of God. If anyone serves, he should do it with the strength God provides, so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ.  To him be the glory and the power for ever and ever. Amen” (1 Peter 4:10-11, NIV)

I believe we could cover a HUGE territory.  Don’t you?!  Pray today as to what God might have you to do.   

“Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the father and of the Sod and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.  And surely I am with you always to the very end of the age.” (Matthew 28:19-20, NIV)
