Bad Chinese Food
This waiter showed me a simple lesson, if you don’t believe in what you sell, you won’t do a good job selling it. Is this true in church? Certainly. How often do we go to advance the gospel of Christ and are rebuffed because deep down people doubt whether we believe in it? How often do we invite friends to church never believing that church will matter to them? We invite/share Christ simply because we know we are supposed to. For most of us church is a job or a chore and not a passion.
I don’t want to sell a product I don’t believe in. I guess before you can ask a stranger to buy anything you have to “buy” it yourself. With your church, with your faith, do you “buy” it? The worst kind of service is a service that doesn’t believe in the product its selling.
