When I got to the bowling alley tonight I found that we were tied again with several other teams.
This is the third week we’ve been tied. The first week we were tied for first place with two teams. We won the first game. The second and third games we handed the over to the opposing team who happened to be the number one team. We fell apart. I guess we were intimidated or something.
The second week we were vying for fourth place. Again we were tied with two teams. We won two games plus total points. Our last game we had 1001 pins. We were in shock and amazed. We loved it-never happened to us before.
This week we were tied with two teams for ninth place. We lost the first game. We won the second and third game plus total pins.
We are not the best team but a miracle is keeping us going. There are twenty teams and we have been in most of the positions. Up and down, back and forth.
Who knows, we might just be number one when the league is over.
When mission field comes to mind do you think of a different country or a different state? Did you ever think evangelizing as something you do on a regular basis? If not think about it. It can be the community swimming pool, the nail salon, the grocery store or the bowling alley. These are just a few to get your thoughts flowing. There are more than I can think of.
You don’t have to strap on your Bible and arm yourselves with tracks to be a good witness for God. You may be the only Bible the people will ever read. It is not necessary to beat them over their head with the Word. We are the living Word. We are the light. We are the answer. Our assignment is to go into all the world–at home as well as other countries.
The part of the Body of Christ that I belong to bowl in leagues and tournaments. That is our mission field and as a result of doing what God has assigned us to do many people have given their life to the Lord. We go into the bowling establishments armed with bowling balls and the light of God. We are the Bible they read. Week after week the story doesn’t change.
We should be doing what Jesus did. He was out in the world–not behind walls waiting for the world to come to Him.
It’s awesome that God can take something I love to do and use me to do my part in evangelizing that part of the world.
Can God depend on you to evangelize the world through something you love to do?
