bits from bob....

A catchy phrase of several years ago observed that "people must be sought, brought, caught, taught, and bought by the precious blood of Jesus--otherwise our efforts are for naught!" If this is true, the church must be involved in seeking, bringing, catching, and teaching those who will be purchased by the blood of Jesus (Acts. 20:28). I was reminded of this truth recently by a simple card I received from Herald of Truth. I have altered and expanded their acronym for this article.
People are not caught simply by chasing, grabbing, tackling, or any such overt action. Nor are people effectively caught by manipulation. People are caught when Christians consciously develop as a part of their lifestyles the mind and actions of Jesus Christ.

Consider these characteristics of effective "catchers."

By the way, are you a caught person? Are you caught by the love of Jesus? Are you catching others?
