In Need of a Savior: In 1992, a Los Angeles County parking control officer came upon a brown El Dorado Cadillac illegally parked next to the curb on street sweeping day. The officer dutifully wrote out a ticket. Ignoring the man seated at the driver’s wheel, the officer reached inside the open car window and placed the $30 citation on the dashboard. The driver of the car made no excuses. No argument ensued…and with good reason. The driver of the car had been shot in the head ten to twelve hours before but was sitting up, stiff as a board, slumped slightly forward, with blood on his face. He was dead. The officer, preoccupied with ticket writing, was unaware of anything out of the ordinary. He got back in his car and drove away. This may seem far fetched, but it is actually documented.
Many people around us are dead in transgressions and sins. What should catch our attention most is their need, not their offenses. They don’t need a citation, they are in need of a Savior. We have a sleeping church today. We must wake up, shake up and stir up the people. God has a mighty army in need of revival. Outside our doors, in our neighborhoods and sometimes even under our own roofs are people we know who are in need of a Savior. GCRC is a process that can mobilize the people of God with the gospel.
