Ouch! That’s a question.
It’s a challenge question. You don’t have to convince me of where you are…YOU KNOW!! How you respond to the fact you know is probably the most important aspect of a question like this. Is Church a ‘tick’ in a box, an event in your week every Sunday or are you living out the inward change in your day to day actions?
Too many Christians DO Church.
They arbitrarily decide whether Church is good enough by the songs that were sung, who preached or how loud the music was.
They leave because the Pastor didn’t pray for them.
[Is this too harsh?]
Church is about lifting up the name of Jesus. When we do that He will draw people to Himself.
Church is more than what we do on a Sunday. [Please let it be about more than a Sunday].
It’s about our interaction with OTHERS.
It’s about our influence with OTHERS.
It’s about our being the ‘real deal’ everyday with OTHERS.
What are you doing during the week to be Church?
Who are you reaching out to?
Whose life are you connected with?
What could you do to bring transformation to ANOTHER?
How have you displayed the love that you have for Jesus this week?
It’s a CHALLENGE for me. One I have to accept.
It’s everything we don’t like. Risky. Scary.
It takes everything we think we don’t have. Courage. Faith.
Are you up for it too?
What can you do between Sundays to impact someone’s world?
