Why do we believers so often do the opposite of what Jesus tells us?
Jesus told his disciples to go; we ask people to come.
Jesus instructed his disciples to make disciples of all nations; we ask people for decisions.
Jesus said he will build his church; we try to do it for him.
Jesus told his disciples to teach people to obey his commands; we teach them all about his commands.
Jesus told his disciples to go out as lambs among wolves; we go out in strength.
Jesus gave his disciples specific instructions as to where they were to go; we ask him to bless where we are going.
Jesus told his disciples to bless the home of the person of peace; we Christians are known for our hypocrisy and judgementalism.
Jesus told his disciples not to go from house to house but to stay in the home of the person of peace; what is one of our favorite means of evangelism?
Jesus was known as a friend of sinners; we are scared of being contaminated by them.
And this is just from Luke 10 and Matthew 28 (plus one or two other related scriptures).
