What is a spectator?

1 : one who looks on or watches

There are so many people that look on and just watch. As Pastor Davis put it, they sit on the sidelines telling others what to do and what not to do but never getting in the game themselves! Sound familiar?

I did not want to be a spectator in my life for God, so I took a stand......I'm not ashamed of God's church or my leaders or my beliefs! Are you?

Mark 8:38

"Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation; of him also shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he cometh in the glory of his Father with the holy angels."

Romans 10:11

"For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed."

Notice, the Bible doesn't say "let the redeemed of the Lord be spectators"......its says "LET THE REDEEMED OF THE LORD SAY SO!"

Psalm 107:2

"Let the redeemed of the LORD say so, whom he hath redeemed from the hand of the enemy;"

How about that neighbor that doesn't know God that you see day in and day out. Have you shared with them the glorious news of the Gospel? Or are you ashamed at what they might "think" of you?

You make time for the things you think are important. Why are people always waiting on someone else to do it? Let's not wait on another.....arise to do whatever God has called you to do......leave the crowd of spectators! Take a stand and ARISE for God!

There are spectators in so many things. People that just sit there and do nothing but watch! It's easy to just sit and watch the game ......but I want to be in the game!
