Ramblings … "Idle"
I was reading a passage of Scripture today that popped out at me like never before. Paul was writing to the church in Thessalonica … he’s encouraging and motivating them. Then he offers them several instructions as he is closing his letter. I must have read this a hundred times.
“… warn those who are idle …“
Wow. It is a Christian responsibility to warn those who have become stagnant. Maybe some who have walked away from the call of God to full-time ministry or missions. Still others who may not have the passion for God that they once had.
As a pastor, I have the incredible responsibility of keeping people out of the spiritual rut of complacency. No pressure!
Question for Thought: “How do you keep Christ-followers from being idle?” I am trying to answer that personally today!!! Any thoughts — make some comments!
