The very unlikely candidate
They’ll never come! We are really good at making decisions on behalf of other people. But even more so when we have the unlikely candidate. The unlikely candidate is the one who we just know is so anti anything to do with faith that we don’t even bother. They have vociferously perhaps told us in the past or we have been party to a conversation where they have derided Christ, so we leave them alone. This can be despite the fact that we gain a distinct impression that we should invite them to something. There are many examples of the unlikely candidate turning to Christ, the murderous Saul who became the Apostle Paul, more recently gang leader Nicky Cruz, atheistic scientist Dr Francis Collins. Invite someone today to take a closer look at Christ and his church.
