Have you ever heard the story about four people named Everybody, Somebody, Anybody and Nobody?
There was an important job to be done and Everybody was asked to do it. Everybody was sure Somebody would do it. Anybody could have done it, but Nobody did it. Somebody got angry at that, because it was Everybody's job. Nobody realized that Everybody wouldn't do it. The final result was that Everybody blamed Somebody when Nobody did what Anybody could have done.
Today, more than ever, somebody needs to be responsible for the mission of church - making disciples. Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”- Matthew 28:18-20.
Everybody is responsible, so church it's time to get busy and not count on anybody else. Amen?
Be about God's work today and always. Amen?
