A Sinner is a Natural Evangelist!

I'm sure you will all agree with me that, there is more sin than holiness in this world. Being holy is synonymous to being uncool. If you want to insult a Christian just call them holy and all hell will break loose, the irony. 

Why is this the case though? Ever wondered why you constantly repeat the same sin? You know something to be wrong but you do it anyway, why? You cry to God day and night for strength but when temptation come, you fall anyway, why? Is sin that nice? Or  are we blinded to the fact that it is sin? 

Here is what I think, a sinner is a natural evangelist! 

To explain my premise lets go back to where it all started, the fall of men in Genesis. The serpent talked Eve into eating the forbidden fruit but one thing we always miss is that, the serpent did not ask her to give some to Adam yet she did it anyway. In like manner, it is more natural for us to drag others to join our sinful ways, yet we find it hard to share Jesus. 

It doesn't take two minutes to think of a way to get a girl to agree to sleep with you, to ask a friend to lie to cover up for you, to think of a way to re-possess something that doesn't belong to you (stealing), yet when it comes to sharing God's word, we somehow all become inadequate. We have mastered the excuses of Moses and Jonah yet totally ignorant of the words of Paul when he says 'I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.' 

I know sin is nice (if it wasn't, then we will all be holy), but Jesus is calling us to the cross, to share in his suffering and pain, to take up our cross daily and follow him. Prosperity, miracles and wonders should not be the drive in our Christianity as being portrayed in many of our churches, JESUS and Him crucified should and must be the center of the gospel.
