The Gospel Bleachers

The Gospel Bleachers…

We tend to be a nation of spectators. We watch sports, television, even the internet. We as believers even behave like spectators when it comes to reading the Bible. We act as if the various people and stories of the Bible are only there for us to learn from, or be touched thereby.

But the Bible is not just a history book relating events that happened to people long ago. It’s about God, who is God of the living, not the dead.

Consider the book of Acts for example. All the people mentioned there are our elder brothers and sisters. They were the first, and we should learn about them. But they are no longer on the playing field.

The baton has been passed, and the ball is in our court. The book of Acts is now, and it’s our turn! Just as spectators should not be on the field, players should not be in the bleachers. You are a player!

So stop watching the glory from the bleachers. Get on the field of glory and live the Great Commission. Fight the fight, gain the victory, win the battle… and live the Bible.

The apostles performed many signs and wonders among the people. And all the believers used to meet together in Solomon’s Colonnade. Acts 5:12

You have been called to great acts. Be that heroic biblical character today and take the field of battle; be courageous in sharing the Good News.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,
