“But stay away from those who have foolish arguments and talk about useless family histories and argue and quarrel about the law. Those things are worth nothing and will not help anyone. After a first and second warning, avoid someone who causes arguments. You can know that such people are evil and sinful; their own sins prove them wrong.” – Titus 3:9-11
There was a time we spent more energy following up with those who didn’t want to believe than we did pursuing those who had not even heard of Jesus yet.
“When you enter that home, say, ‘Peace be with you.’ If the people there welcome you, let your peace stay there. But if they don’t welcome you, take back the peace you wished for them. And if a home or town refuses to welcome you or listen to you, leave that place and shake its dust off your feet. I tell you the truth, on the Judgment Day it will be better for the towns of Sodom and Gomorrah than for the people of that town.” – Matthew 10:12-15
Be careful. The enemy would love for you to keep surrounding yourself with those who say “No” while those who would say “Yes” remain unreached.
