Have You Been 'Boosted?'

Have you tried any of those Boost Juice places?

There’s one at the local shopping centre and I might be tempted to try one of their concoctions if I could ever get near the counter. Wherever I’ve seen these shops there is always a queue. What’s going on?

I guess people know that what they’re peddling is good for them. On their website they say, “At Boost we make a passionate commitment to enrich people’s bodies with nutritious smoothies, juices and healthy food.”

With drinks starting at $3.80 for a small cup, people are obviously keen on getting into stuff that’s good for them.

So what’s my point? I just wonder why people aren’t queuing up like that to find out more about Jesus. (Please excuse the comparison to fruit juice.) Surely if people realised how wonderful Jesus is they’d want to get in touch with him. In crass marketing terms, we know the product is good; so why can’t we get more people interested? I know there are spiritual forces at work here but there should still be people beating down our doors.

Let’s make “a passionate commitment to enrich people’s lives with Jesus.”
