5.5 million North Carolinians do not have a life-transforming relationship with Jesus Christ. What? Are you sure? That seems awful high. Can’t be! Well, it is! According to multiple researchers on church attendance and religious beliefs, 5.5 of the 9.2 million residents in North Carolina do not have a personal, eternal, life-changing relationship with God’s Son, Jesus. Now, they may be great neighbors, outstanding members of the community, generous philanthropists and all around “good guys,” but according to the research heaven is not their destiny because Jesus is not their Lord.
Now the question is, “What are we Christ-followers going to do about that?” Are we going to impact our communities with the Gospel? Are we going to share the transformational message of Jesus with our neighbors, friends and family? Are we going to be speakers of truth and sharers of Christ’s love or will we remain silent, satisfied church-goers with little concern for the sea of humanity around us desperately in need of Jesus?
I choose to be a speaker of truth and a sharer of Christ’s love, and during the next few months I invite you and your church to join me. Specifically, I invite you to be a part of what God is doing through Find It Here NC. Take a moment and see how easy it is for you and your church to share His love, reach your friend and change your community. Check it out at here.
