Nothing worth doing is ever easy

One of the reasons I hear from church leaders as to why they don’t continue with a second invitation Sunday is that the previous one was “not worth doing”. This phrase talks about an activity or an action that wastes time or money. Was it worth doing when many disciples deserted Jesus because the teaching was too hard? Was it worth doing when Peter and John were jailed for inviting people to take a closer look at Christ? “Worth doing” speaks of having to gain something, but hear the words of US President Theodore Roosevelt.“Nothing in the  world is worth having or worth doing unless it means effort, pain, difficulty… I have never in my life envied a human being who led an easy life. I have envied a great many people who led difficult lives and led them well.” Invite someone today to take a closer look at Christ and his church and know that whether you get a yes or a no, it was worth doing.
