These are Thought Provokers that may help you meditate on the Gospel for this Sunday: Luke 3:7-18.

***************************************

I am shocked to find how many people in our churches have never anywhere made a decisive Christian commitment. They oozed into church membership on a conventional kind of basis, but no one has ever effectively dealt with them spiritually, or helped them to make a Christian decision.

People will wrangle for religion;
write for it;
fight for it;
die for it;
anything but-live for it.

Caleb Colton

There can be no question but that Church membership
has been made too cheap.
It has become largely a convention….
At present our churches draw and hold the settled
and cramp or repel the venturesome,
which is precisely the reverse of the New Testament Church.

Henry Sloane Coffin

It does not take a great mind to be a Christian,
but it takes all the mind a person has.
