Creative Faith

Thoughts by Pastor Brad...

The British preacher Charles Spurgeon shares these words commenting on the faith of the friends of the paralytic lowered through the roof to Jesus; “The world is constantly inventing; genius serves all the purposes of human desire: cannot faith invent too, and reach by some new means the outcasts who lie perishing around us.” We must have the faith of the paralytic’s friends and be creative in reaching the lost. There are many impediments that block the gospel from the lost and we must be used by the Spirit to remove these barriers. It is easy to become stale in our own traditions which keep the light of the gospel from shining to others. Pray that God will give you new ideas and means to reach the lost in this crazy, ever-changing world.
