This one is for Andrew.

I stood at Andrew’s door tonight and talked to him.  It often occurs to me how strange it must be to have someone you have never met encourage you to follow the Lord.  I want all of the Andrews in this world to know that I would not bother them for no reason.  I do not visit for religious reasons, to grow the church, or to gain some kind of standing with God.  I cannot help but care about people because the Lord has been so kind to me.  Before I go to a door I pray that somehow the person who answers that door will sense the presence of God’s love.  After I go to a door I pray that the Lord will remind that person of the few moments we shared.  The world is sick of religion, but everybody needs relationships.  Without meaningful relationships life is lonely and empty.  I go to doors to offer relationships.  I offer myself and the wonderful church which I serve to become a caring community to the ones I visit.  I also offer the opportunity for a real, satisfying, and eternal relationship with Jesus Christ.  He is the reason I visit.  Jesus loves you, Andrew.

  1. I thank the Lord that he sent an obedient person, in fact, several people to “bother” me with the truth of the gospel! May God continue to bless you in your obedience to share God’s love and the example you set for all of us.

    “Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your toil is not in vain in the Lord.” (I Corinthians 15:58)
