Redeeming the Time: March 26, 2017
Treating Our Visitors as Guests
By Mark W. White
We have been blessed here with a steady stream of visitors to our assemblies and Bible classes each week. It’s often difficult just to keep up with them!
Some of these are folks from other congregations in the area or abroad who are just passing through.
Others, like Paul when he arrived in Jerusalem (Acts 9:26), are Chris-tians seeking to join themselves with a group of saints in the work and worship of the Lord.
Still others are Christians who have left the Lord and are “trying out” congregations looking for a place to make their return.
And still more are people who are searching for some kind of religion in their life—they know not what for sure except that they need something. They come because we’re convenient, or because they’re your neighbor, or because you invited them, or because they’ve just heard about us somehow.
All of these people are prospects—in different ways.
