My husband and I recently visited Boston Avenue Methodist Church in downtown Tulsa.
As we were sitting in our pew waiting for the service to begin, I noticed a few rows up, an empty seat and a woman who leaned over to the couple next to it and ask, “Not saved?”
She was speaking of the empty seat, not the couple’s spiritual status.
I still had to chuckle to myself. It just sounded funny. With the “not” in front of it.
Churches are all about being there to welcome those that are “not saved”. And to send all of us that are, out into this hurting world to find those that are not. Saved. And show them the way.
I wanted to pipe in from my row with an exuberant, “Saved!”😊
Let’s all constantly be aware of those around us that are not saved. They are who need us much more than our convenient Christian friends. It’s often very hard to do. But it’s what God calls us to do. To love them. To pray for them. And to show them God’s love through us by our example.
Now let me ask you, saved? Or not saved? If not is your answer, comment, and let’s talk!
Because, if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. Romans 10:9
Love and laughter,
