In Fiddler on the Roof Chava and Hodel plead with Yenta;

“Matchmaker, Matchmaker, make me a match. Find me a find, catch me a catch.” 

There was a time when the matchmaker was the most influential person in the prospects of what a young lady’s life would become. Her wealth, happiness, family, and future were all rolled up in the hands of someone else. The Matchmaker would introduce and initiate a relationship that would be life defining.

Today one of the greatest opportunities you are given is to be a matchmaker. No, not introducing young love. Rather introducing and connecting people to a relationship that is equally life changing and defining.

Andrew was one of the first of our generation of matchmakers. As he sat working one afternoon, he introduced his brother Peter to Jesus. And as the saying goes, ‘the rest is history’.

A matchmaker has no control over how a relationship will develop or grow. Their job is just to get the two together and let love take its course.

Who is there in your sphere that needs an introduction to Jesus? Just an introduction. Jesus will take it from there. He will love. He will woo. He ‘will come in to them and eat with them, and they with him’. Rev:3:20

Tell a friend about Jesus. Invite them to Church with you. Show a coworker how Jesus has changed your life. Give out a Bible or a book. Be there when someone is grieving.

Help people connect to God.

Introduce them to your friend Jesus.
