When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them because they were confused and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. He said to his disciples, “The harvest is great, but the workers are few.” —Matthew 9:36-37
As a teenager, I would hang around Spiritual Baptist. I would try to engage in conversation, but was afraid I would not be able to keep up with them. To me they were a very special people and on Saturdays when Bishop Blucher, then Pointer Blucher would visit Bequia. I wanted to be first at the service, right in the front. In my heart I was saying, “Talk to me. Don’t be put off me off. It is false. I was afraid to approach him to ask about Jesus, but deep in my heart I wanted that experience.
I would set up a make shift table, flowers and a bell of some sort. There in our backyard I would imitate everything I saw in the service, but it was not enough. Something was missing deep in my heart and soul. I was longing for God and the experience those folks had, I wanted to serve the Lord. I had a thirst and one night I heard Pointer Blucher minister and quote the Pilgrim’s Progress and I wanted that book. I acquired it and read it over and over, but there was still a void. Hallelujah one day I made the bold step to to enter into His gates with joy and here I am today some 30 years after still standing on His promises.
Most Christians who have a basic knowledge of the faith could have easily explained the gospel to someone like me. And there is a world full of people out there who are just like I was, waiting for someone to take a risk. They are waiting for someone like you to say, “I will go ahead and give it a go.” The worst-case scenario is they will say no. But what if they say yes? How willing are you to step out in faith and be used of Him?
