Neighbors Make a Difference
As we complete the week of VBS I have been reminded of the influence of neighbors. Many of the children present have come because a “neighbor” invited them. Not necessarily someone who lives next to their house, although that has happened, but someone who was willing to be a “neighbor”, as Jesus explained by the story of the Good Samaritan. People who love and care about those around them, and see their wounds and want to take them to a place where healing can begin – that is being neighborly. Twice in the last week, I have been told about people who are adult believers, that came to Christ because a neighbor during their childhood began inviting them to church. What would happen if every member of CHBC took the opportunity to act in a neighborly way toward the lost people in their families, in their workplaces, in restaurants, in coffee shops, and yes, in their neighborhoods? Would you commit with me to be faithful in being present at church, and in being a neighbor that makes a difference?
