Why wouldn't you?

I recently met an amazing man of God here, and though I don't know him well, he simply exudes the love of Jesus. So, I just wanted to relay a story that was shared with me about him. Through the week he works in the city, but each weekend he ventures out to his hometown in the provinces. Why? Well, he hosts a home church in his village because he so desperately wants people to know Jesus. Some friends of mine were talking to him about this, and they said something about how great they thought his sacrifice was and how amazing they thought it was that he would open his home every week to people. With the utmost sincerity and his heart in his eyes, he responded with, "Why wouldn't you? They don't know Jesus. They need to know Him."
That's it, folks. Why wouldn't you?
So, what stops us? What stops us from opening our homes and hearts to those who don't know Him? They need to know Him...

"The Lord does not delay and is not tardy or slow about what He promises, according to some people's conception of slowness, but He is long-suffering (extraordinarily patient) toward you, not desiring that any should perish, but that all should turn to repentance." ~ 2 Peter 3:9
