A few years ago, I heard about a leader who simply prayed, “Lord, bring us all those that nobody else wants.” Imagine the response when one by one several, often classified as undesirable, showed up.
If we believe the gospel is for all, then do we work to see that all have opportunity, not just to hear the gospel, but see it in our actions?
The path is not an easy one to walk. However, we are not called to lead only those who are lovable, but those often considered unlovable.
Think about Jesus and the ones He reached out to serve. Are we listening? Will we follow?
