  1. #10.  If you showed up today so [that] no one will call you tomorrow.

Mat 18:12 ASV. How think ye? if any man have a hundred sheep, and one of them be gone astray, doth he not leave the ninety and nine, and go unto the mountains, and seek that which goeth astray?

  1. #9.  If your Bible has more dust than your television.

    2Ti 2:15 ASV.  Give diligence to present thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, handling aright the word of truth.

  2. #8.  If you have not changed seats in five years.

    Act 6:7 ASV.  And the word of God increased; and the number of the disciples multiplied in Jerusalem exceedingly; and a great company of the priests were obedient to the faith.

  3. #7.  If you have not studied with someone in the past year.

    2Ti 2:2 ASV.  And the things which thou hast heard from me among many witnesses, the same commit thou to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also.

  4. #6.  If you don't know the words to "Jesus Loves Me".

    Col 3:16 ASV.  Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly; in all wisdom teaching and admonishing one another with psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts unto God.

  5. #5.  If you only worship one hour a week.

    Joh 4:23 ASV.  But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and truth: for such doth the Father seek to be his worshippers.

  6. #4.  If you introduce yourself to a member thinking they are a visitor.

    Act 4:32 ASV.  And the multitude of them that believed were of one heart and soul: and not one of them said that aught of the things which he possessed was his own; but they had all things common.

  7. #3.  If the only time you see brethren is once a week.

    Act 5:42 ASV.  And every day, in the temple and at home, they ceased not to teach and to preach Jesus as the Christ.

  8. #2.  If your friend of a year is surprised you are a Christian.

    Rom 12:2 ASV.  And be not fashioned according to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, and ye may prove what is the good and acceptable and perfect will of God.

  9. #1.  If you blame everyone but yourself for the church not growing.

    Mat 28:19 ASV. Go ye therefore, and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them into the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit:
