No Vacancy Here!

When the slow-moving clerk in a small store was not around one morning a customer asked the owner's young son, "Where's Eddie? Is he sick?" Nope, he ain't workin' here no more," was the reply. "Do you have anyone in mind for the vacancy?" inquired the customer. "Nope! Eddie didn't leave no vacancy!" We smile, but the statement which characterized Eddie applies equally to many in the church today. In serving Christ they are so weak and colorless that if they left the community their absence would scarcely be noticed.
