What Would Luther Say?

Are We Effective In The Kingdom… Or Are We Just Busy?

Are We Effective In The Kingdom… Or Are We Just Busy?It occurred to me this morning that we live in a world surrounded by people in desperate need for Jesus, desperately in need of a future and a destiny with Him at the center… but we are so busy doing stuff that we no longer see their need.
