Be Strong, Be Well — Wednesday, December 30, 2020
Why do we call it “Junk Mail?” Because it doesn’t interest us. What do we do with it? We throw it into the trash or recycle bin. It is pretty routine. We’re used to it. Most of us don’t get upset about it. It is what it is.
Why do people send out these mailings? Because there are some folks who will be intrigued, follow up on the information, and contact the source of the mailer.
So we have a choice. No one forces us to read junk mail or respond to it. We are free to decide for ourselves how this will effect us.
Our twice a year House-to-House mailing targets our particular zip code around the immediate area of the church building. Inevitably many will judge it to be junk mail and will throw it away. However, some will be intrigued and curious. They will read it. They still may throw it away, but there are some who will respond to it in a favorable way.
No one forces anyone to read HTH. We receive responses to our mailing, both favorable and unfavorable. When folks decide to take a look, their heart may be stirred to examine the deeper truth of Jesus Christ. It is our goal to help as many as we can to find salvation through Him.
“For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God” (1 Corinthians 1:18).—Chris
