Waiting for an Invitation

“Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? And how can they preach unless they are sent? As it is written, “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!” Romans 10:13-15

“A Sunday school teacher once visited a poor family in one of the top apartments of a tenement in a small but clean room. From conversation with the father and mother, she soon discovered that since the beginning of a long illness of the father, the family had fallen from comparative comfort to poverty. He was now, however, better, and had been able for some time to work a little, so as to keep his family from destitution, but by no means to enable them to live in comfort. Having learned so much of their worldly concerns, their visitor next began to speak of their souls’ interests. She asked them if they went to any church. ‘No,’ said the father. ‘We used to go long ago, before I took ill, but we went no more after that.’
“‘But you have been better for a good while,’ said the teacher.
“‘But nobody ever asked us to come!’
“‘Well,’ said the visitor, ‘I’ll ask you now,’ and she directed him to a church where he would hear the glad tidings from a faithful minister. The next Sunday several of the children were at her Sunday school and told her that their family had been at church. Since that day they have been hearers of the Word. How many souls are perishing ‘because, though all things are now ready, nobody ever asked them to come!’ Will not the blood of their souls be required at the hand of those who profess to have tasted a Savior’s love, and yet make not one effort to pluck brands out of the fire?”
