Put me in coach

In sports you have the players in the game, the players on the bench and the players who didn’t even show up to the game. Christianity has the same dynamic. Let’s use the example of youth baseball. A typical team has 9 in the game and 3 on the bench. 12 total on the team. Typically all show up. So you have 80% in the game and 20% on the bench( Ready to help ) and 100% showing up. The contrast with Christianity is stark. According to polling data: About 5% are in the game. 20% are on the bench and 75% are NO SHOWS on an average Sunday. Only 25% are showing up and only 5% are active on the field. No sports team would win with this participation rate. It’s time for believers to connect to a local body and tell the leaders PUT ME IN COACH! You have come to the kingdom for such a time as this. Follow the high call. Put that hand to the plow and don’t look back. The harvest is plenteous and the workers are few. Pray the Lord of the Harvest to send forth the workers.
