HE REACHED PEOPLE THAT WERE NOT LIKE HIM.
As followers of Jesus our greatest calling is to bring people that are FAR FROM GOD to a place where they can discover LIFE IN JESUS.uncomfortable, unsettled and unselfish.
The people we are to reach, the ones that don't know Jesus, don't have the same expectation of church you and I do.
They aren't looking for tradition, systems and perfection. (The people we inherit from other churches are always looking for these! Remember, they aren't the mission, the people who don't know Jesus are the mission!) They are looking for relationships, kindness, relevance and real people. They are looking for the person that is in Jesus.....That's what we need to offer!
Consider John 3:30 that we MUST decrease so that He can increase. That the place where Jesus shows up and lives are truly changed!
