slow and steady plodding

I read of a church in MD that gave away cars on a Sunday morning and got a big crowd of people to show up.  I wonder how many of those people continued to come to church, after the cars were gone.

I am skeptical of such actions.  Is this just a ploy to gather masses?  I would rather win people through prayer and the good news of Jesus Christ and the Bible, even if it is a long and slow process.  There is no “silver bullet” to reaching people for Christ.

I greatly appreciated this article from 9Marks, with that title.  We continue to slog and plod along, praying and evangelizing, sharing the gospel as God provides and allows.  Who knows?  Maybe He will grant repentance to some…
