The Power of "For"

Today I inadvertantly answered one of those phone calls that I normally would let the answer machine pick up. Upon realizing that I had answered a computer-generated call, I listened for a moment and then hung up. The caller was representing a national "ministry" that seems to be constantly against something or other. Now, I agree with their right to be against evil, and even applaud it. But I wonder what the effect would be if the same amount of money, man-power, and effort were put into spreading the Good News of Jesus to our world. Somehow I think that being "for" something is so much more powerful than being "against" something. Granted, Jesus came out four square against the Pharisees and Sadducees in His day, but His main focus, and the mandate that He left us was to "go and make disciples of all nations..."
Wouldn't it be great to get a call one day that says, "Hi. I'm calling to tell you about the greatest news that world has ever heard, and to give you an opportunity to benefit from this good news." Then the caller would present the news about Jesus, His coming, His death, burial and resurrection, and His invitation to eternal life. Wow! Now that would be powerful! And it is definitely "for".
