You have probably read the following parody. This simple story fits in so well with our current teaching series “WON BY ONE” that we will continue this Sunday, that I wanted to share it with you.
“This is a story about four people named Everybody, Somebody, Anybody, and Nobody. There was an important job to be done and Everybody was sure that Somebody would do it. Anybody could have done it, but Nobody did it. Somebody got angry about that because it was Everybody’s job. Everybody thought Anybody could do it, but Nobody realized that Everybody wouldn't do it. It ended up that Everybody blamed Somebody when Nobody did what Anybody could have.”
Some years ago there was a jingle that included the line, “Reach out, Reach Out and Touch Someone.” When it comes to reaching out to those who are disenfranchised or disconnected from church, there is no better person to make it happen than you! You are the ANYBODY! Can you think of someone who needs a touch? You can do it!
This Sunday we study Peter - a colorful character - whom the Lord used to build and extend His work. What a bridge-builder he was. In fact, Peter is the only one that we read in the Bible that when he spoke thousands came to Christ (check out Acts 2). WOW!
Just as the Lord used Peter, a simple fisherman, to do His important work, He can and will use you if you give Him the opportunity.
I look forward to seeing you this Sunday as we worship and fellowship together.
You are greatly loved!
