No need to hurry

We seem in some parts of the church to be in a hurry. To hurry is to move or act with speed or haste. We are desperate to see our friends gain a relationship with God, but that results sometimes in an alarming amount of activity. Hurry can be a manifestation of fear; there is a saying the person who fears not has plenty of time. So hurry can be a form of worry. I don’t recall any scripture telling that Jesus ever hurried. He certainly delayed going to Lazarus which resulted in him dying. Jesus only did what he saw his father doing. If Jesus didn’t hurry, should that be a pattern for us to follow? Slow down and only invite someone if prompted by God and then invite them to take a closer look at Christ and his church.
