Encourage Evangelistic Relationships (#START)

One way jesusJesus built relationships with lost people. The religious leaders of Jesus day constantly complained about Jesus’ willingness to eat with tax collectors and sinners. Jesus explained that, “Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick. I did not come to call the righteous, but sinners, to repentance.”

We must follow Jesus’ example and build relationships with lost people. The other day I got lost. I knew that I was lost and kept turning on streets that I thought would get me where I needed to go. For a time, I was too prideful to call and admit that I was lost. But, I finally reached out to someone who gave me directions. In no time, I had arrived at my destination.

While I knew that I was lost, many lost people have no clue that they are lost. They don’t know that they need to reach out and call for directions. Increasingly, Americans are becoming ignorant of Christianity. They might feel empty and realize that something is missing but they don’t know Jesus is the answer that they are looking for.

These lost people are not coming to our churches. They are not in our Sunday School classes. But they will respond to a relationship. The Harvest is great but if believers don’t build a relationship with lost people, most will spend eternity in Hell.

Let’s START building relationships with lost people. Sunday School classes catch a vision that Sunday School is more than just a Bible study with friends and take actions to be engaged in a Harvest field for the sake of lost souls.  There truly is only ONE WAY to Heaven! Through a saving relationship with JESUS!

Nothing happens unless and until we START!
