Are You Wasting First-Rate Enthusiasm On A Second-Rate Cause?

“The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life; and he who wins souls is wise.”

Proverbs 11:30

Ponder This

It's amazing what gets folks all excited. A Russian came to the United States during football season, and friends took him to a great bowl game. Afterward, they asked him what he thought about it.

Do you know what he said? “I've never seen so much first-rate enthusiasm for such a second-rate cause.”

What's the first-rate cause? What’s the most important thing? “for the Son of Man has come to seek and to save that which is lost” (Luke 19:10).

Getting souls saved is what it's all about. “Those who are wise shall shine like the brightness of the firmament, and those who turn many to righteousness like the stars forever and ever” (Daniel 12:3).

You may have members of your family who are lost. One day they will die, and you’ll say, “My God, why didn't I witness?”

Practice This

Why don’t you say this week, “I'II make my life a life of one thing. This one thing I do.” It's time we got excited about what excites God, our Father, and that's winning people to Jesus Christ, committed to the cause of the Holy Spirit.
