The Scripture for today, December 30, is Matthew 12:30, as found in the New Testament of the Bible:
“He who is not with me is against me, and he who does not gather with me scatters.”
You mean we can’t just drift along just showing up at church services and that is all? We must gather people to him. It’s important that we do so. Are we doing it? Or are we too afraid?
Deep down inside, most people fear that, if we bring Jesus into a conversation, people will do us great harm and become dangerous enemies. Although in some countries of the world this is true, in most it is not. But still we quake at the thought of bringing up Jesus to our friends, and even to strangers.
It can be done. Give it a try. If it were your soul, would you want someone to at least try to save you? Dare to be a gatherer today.
