A parable about "2 seas and ME":
I’ve sailed on the Sea of Galilee and I’ve floated in the Dead Sea.
Both the Dead Sea and Sea of Galilee have freshwater inlets.
Yet only one teems with life.
It has an outlet.
The Dead Sea actually has *more* freshwater flowing in, but everything stagnates, shrivels, dies.
Because it’s AlLL intake, NO output.
The point: “Don’t be a Dead Sea Christian.”
As God’s people and as The Church – we’re to have a ‘ripple effect’ =
an ever-expanding reach of impact and influence for Jesus.
