Ring the Dinner Bell


The Spirit and the bride say, “Come!”

Everyone who hears this should say, “Come!”

If you are thirsty, come! If you want life-giving water, come and take it. It's free!

Revelation 22:17

I'm not old enough to remember the Dinner Bell. It was used for the farmer in the field who would know it was time to come in and eat when he heard it ring.  When everything was ready someone was appointed to ring that bell!

In a real sense, the job of everyone who follows Jesus Christ is to ring the "Dinner Bell."  Everything is ready and it is time to call people to come home!  Jesus has gotten things ready and now it is time to call all men to come to Him. 

We often try to make our calling it too hard with strategies and programs.  The bottom line of evangelism is that all people need to hear that Jesus wants them to come to Him.  When men call on Jesus, He will take it from there.    Just ring the bell and let people know that dinner is ready!

The offer is simple.  If you are thirsty you can come to Jesus and He will give you free, life-giving water.  Once you have had a taste of the LIFE that comes from Jesus nothing else will satisfy your thirst!

"Lord Jesus, give me an opportunity today, maybe many times today to tell someone that You want them to come to You for life-giving water! Amen."
