In moving to our station up to Westminster, I am still trying to acclimate to my surroundings including places to eat. I think my natural inclination is to eat at places that I know are established or have been recommended by people I trust.
There is a small Mexican restaurant that is less than a mile from the station that has always intrigued me. Every time I drive by it, morning, noon or night, there is a line around the building in the drive thru. I decided to test my fate and go have a $2 breakfast burrito this am and I was not disappointed. I am sure that I will be going back there not only for the reasonable price, but the delicious food that all those drive thru people apparently knew way before I did.
I then thought about our relationship with Jesus. Do pre-believers in Jesus see people who say they are followers of Christ hanging around Jesus in speech and actions? Do people “drive by” our lives and see that we are always with him and not just when it’s convenient to be? Do people see us running to Jesus when trouble hits instead of engaging in the same “coverups” that people without Christ use?
When Christians realize that they are not better people than those who don’t know Jesus but just people who have found a better way, then we will be able to draw in those who are looking for a different way of dealing with problems but finding a whole lot more in Christ when they give him a chance. Just like that little Mexican restaurant I went to this morning, seeing people there all the time compelled me to try it out and I am now hooked.
Today, don’t think about how you are going to tell someone about Jesus, but how you are going to compel them to see that Jesus is not only the solution to their problems but the way, the truth and the life!
Then the master told his servant, “Go out to the roads and country lanes and compel them to come in, so that my house will be full.”
