Don’t Miss The Point!!!

People around you don’t need to hear how cool your church is, they need to hear how loving Jesus is.

 

They don’t need to know about Calvin, Luther or the Puritans, they need to know about Jesus.

 

They don’t need to hear about how quickly your church has grown, they need to hear about how their sin can be forgiven.

 

They don’t need to hear that you “do church differently”, they need to hear about the eternal savior.

 

They don’t need to know the stats of this social issue or that social issue, they need to know the Hope of the World.

 

They don’t care if you call your group a community group or missional community, they need to know they will be loved as Jesus has loved.

 

They don’t need to hear special and relevant music in the service, they need to hear about Jesus.

 

They don’t need to hear from Driscoll, Piper, Keller, Warren or Hybels, they need to hear from the Holy Spirit about Jesus.

 

If your sermon is long and deep but never talks about Jesus it is a failure.

 

If your sermon is shorty and witty but never talks about Jesus it is a failure.

 

If you read deep theological books, but never share the name of Jesus you miss the point.

 

If you serve your neighbor, the poor, and the orphan but never share about Jesus, you miss the point.

 

They need to hear about Jesus.

 

They need to meet Jesus.

 

It is all about Jesus.

 

Have awesome music, deep teaching, funny and witty sermons, serve the community but don’t forget…The main point is, JESUS!

    For the record, Los, we don’t call them community groups or missional communities – they’re Gospel Communities. That said, great post. 🙂

    It’s all about Jesus!
