It’s interesting that everyone talks about how a platform with access to so many people is a wonderful way for the gospel to connect to people.
We look at the value of converts based on the number of people they have access to
For example, a popular celebrity is considered more valuable because of his/her influence and reach compared to a no-name convert.
I think to God, platform or access to people is of little value.
Two cases in point
Something happened at our home this week that reminded me of how God steps in to address problems you never knew you had.
To understand it best, I’d like to share a story that happened during my undergraduate
I had gone to the hospital feeling unwell (exactly, that’s the only reason we go there)
The doctor had recommended a widal test and sensitivity of the test.
I went to the laboratory and the guy asked for samples I didn’t expect to give. I gave it and went my merry way.
I was listening to an American pastor talk about how a decision he made with the leaders of the church, in the wake of COVID19, to not resume for services till the end of the year.
The church is on the top 5 largest churches in the USA by attendance records so it’s a huge thing. Well, not all the church members took it well. A couple of them left voicemail or emails that they were leaving the church.
Well, he did something a bit unusual. He got the phone numbers of most of the people who said they were leaving and called them directly.
