No Time?

timeSomeone has said that the greatest enemy of ministry is the ministry. We are so busy doing good things that we don’t have time for the best.

It is possible for a church to have so much going on that there is little time left for evangelism. Most of the things on the church schedule are good. You can’t really get enough Bible study or fellowship or discipleship or children ministry. But it is possible to have so many activities in the church that there is little time left for things outside the church… like evangelism. Some churches have something going on every day of the week and the not-so-subtle implication is that a “good” Christian does it all.

But what if someone in the church wanted to invited a non-Christian over to their house for a cook-out? What if they did seriously want to engage in evangelism? How much time is there left if they are fully engaged in all the activities of the church?

There is obviously, no perfect answer or formula. But this is a question that every church should ask itself if they perceive a dearth of evangelism.
