Was it you who spoke to that couple in the parking
lot last Sunday morning? I heard you greet them cheerfully with
``Good morning, I'm so glad to see you today!''
Was it you with the smile and the hearty handshake
who greeted folks out in the vestibule between services
Was it you who noticed a member who looked a little
``down'' and then took time to talk to him or her earnestly
about God's love and concern? Everyone comes to services
with some burden. It helps so much when Christians help
``bear one another's burden'' (Galatians 6:2).
Was it you who noticed those visitors who were seated
near you? It helped when you introduced yourself and your
wife to them and to some of your friends close by.
Was it you who saw that young mother with two small
children come into services last Sunday? You informed her
about the nursery and offered your help. Your
thoughtfulness really helped her to be in the right attitude
Was it you who last week entertained some of our new
members in your home? If you have ever been new in a
community, you know how much an invitation like that
means. How important it is that we reach out to new
Was it you? Well, if it was, you were a blessing to
those who are important to God. In these many ways, you
help Christ to minister to people when you greet visitors,
seek out the lonely and show hospitality to fellow
Christians. This kind of positive, excited, happy attitude will
do much to build up the body of Christ. And the wonderful
thing about it is... EVERYONE CAN DO IT.
