WHATEVER IT TAKES

A motivational speaker once said there are two kinds of people in this world: those who say “whatever” and those who say, “Whatever it takes.” “Whatever” is the response of the shrug. It’s a “who cares” attitude, one of indifference and apathy. “Whatever it takes” is the response of the committed. It’s a “can do” attitude that refuses to give up or give in.

Think about those two responses when it comes to the Church’s mission. Jesus said to love your neighbor as yourself. Whatever. Jesus said to go into all the world and preach the gospel. Whatever. Jesus said to seek His kingdom first. Whatever.

Now, let’s change that response to “Whatever it takes.” Jesus said to love your neighbor as yourself. Whatever it takes. Jesus said to go into all of the world and preach the gospel. Whatever it takes. Jesus said to seek His kingdom first. Whatever it takes.

Are you and I, like Paul, willing to do whatever it takes (within the boundaries of God’s law) to win the world to Christ? “Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord” (1 Cor. 15:58).

Think About It!

Have A Great Day!
