Dear Friend In Christ,
Jim Cymbala, the pastor of Brooklyn Tabernacle Church in New York City, tells in his book Fresh Wind, Fresh Fire about a pastor from Australia who attended the Tabernacle one Sunday. Cymbala invited him to the pulpit to share a few words with the congregation. This pastor walked to the front and made one comment.
Here’s something to think about.
You can tell how popular a church is by who comes on Sunday morning.
You can tell how popular the pastor or evangelist is by who comes on Sunday night.
But you can tell how popular Jesus is by who comes to the prayer meeting.
And with that, he walked off the platform. That was all. Cymbala never saw him again.
I agree with this man from ‘down under’. How about you?
