Should we, as the Church, be more about packing our buildings to the hilt to look good…or should we be more abut reaching out to the lost and leading them to a saving relationship with Jesus Christ?
I, for one, think the latter. Sure, having a good growth in the Body of Christ is important, but not for the sake of losing the focus and mission that we have as believers in Christ. Too oftentimes we try to build up the numbers, instead of building up Christians in the faith. When we get that way, the Message becomes muddled and fuzzy, and the focus is all about “look what we’ve done” instead of “look what Christ has done!”
When that happens…the Church becomes a social club, and not a house of worship. 😦
