“How many of you, at one point or another, have wondered what God’s will is for your life, or wondered what your purpose here is?”

Every hand goes up.

(After spending 20 minutes talking about a Bible study that will help answer that very question)

“How many of you can say that you are interested in participating in said Bible study?”

No one new joins the existing group.

How interesting.

A few minutes later…

“If I get called into work on Sunday nights, will you be disappointed in me if I miss the study?”

I hate questions like that, because it reveals a total lack of understanding for the purpose of our study. Seriously, why would anyone care what I think?

    It’s not about just wanting to know “God’s will” give it time. Everybody wants to know there purpose, but not everyone is willing to go and find out. Give it time. People will grow, and people will surprise you. Just let jesus work!
