The rut is easy, comfortable, and expected.
We never seem to find the time to talk to a neighbor about Christ, because are busy with various family and work activities. Starting a Bible study would fill up another night. When we get home at night we are tired and we just want to sit down and relax.
However, our neighbors, the grocery clerk, bank teller, those in sales, and the waitress, all still need Christ.
We have to get out of the rut, get uncomfortable, and start thinking souls. We are spiritual leaders and our task on earth is to lead others to Christ.
