DON’T YOU CHRISTIANS KNOW HOW TO DO ANYTHING?

One day an atheist walked into a Christian bookstore.  He strolled to the “How To” Section of books.

He was amazed at the variety of titles of the “How To” books.

* How To Pray

* How To Read The Bible

* How To Pray In Tongues

* How To Run A Christian Business

* How To Evangelize

* How To Be A Missionary

* How To Be A Christian Therapist

and dozens of other titles.

He scratched his head in amazement.  At that moment, a sales clerk noticed his confusion and stepped forward.  “How can I assist you, Sir?”  The atheist replied, “Don’t you Christians know how to do anything?”

Good Point:

We Christians have forgotten how to live.  We have made a personal, vibrant relationship with Jesus Christ into a bunch of “how to” procedures.  Jesus is the Christian life and only He can live the Christian life through us.  Rest in His love.  Don’t make your walk with Jesus Christ a “how to” life.  Rest in Him.  He will overwhelm you with His love and  produce the fruit through you.

  1. Hi bob, its Ravey aka Lynn, I so agree with you. We can turn even our walk in Christ into a clinical walk. But then the person will find themselves just going through the motions and never achieving the Freedom and Joy the Lord wants us to have. How can we have abundant life if the Holy Spirit isnt leading us but a how to book is?
