My Daily Devotional


Churches Without Walls

“As Jesus went on from there, he saw a man named Matthew sitting at the tax collectors booth. Follow me, he told him, and Matthew got up and followed him.”
Matthew 9:9

I believe the calling of Matthew, is a good indication of what God wants each of us to do in our own lives. My point is that Matthew was a tax collector, and was probably one of the most despised men in the land, as he collected taxes from the people. The tax collectors were usually wealthy individuals, as they were allowed to keep part of the money they collected for themselves. They were disliked and in our eyes they would not have made a good candidate for Jesus to have representing Him to all the people during His ministry. But Jesus chose Matthew, because He wanted to show others that all people could become believers. Jesus does not want us to just spend all our time with other Christians, but to go out into all the world and find those that are lost. We certainly need other Christians in our life to encourage and uplift us, but our mission field needs to be out in the world, where sinners are and where we can spread the word of God to the lost. This is why we find many of the most successful ministries in our country going out to the prisons, to the bars, in bicycle gangs, anywhere there are sinners that need to know about Christ. There are many of the more well known evangelists that used to be drug addicts, prisoners, prostitutes, etc. themselves that have been converted and are now winning souls for Christ. Our churches should all have an outreach in their local communities, into places where they can tell others about salvation. However, I am afraid that many of our churches are churches with walls around them. I believe our churches should be churches without walls, where we are out being evangelists as God commands.
