5. We must make church a place where the un-churched feel welcome. The reason so many people drive by our churches every single day and don’t ever think about coming inside to check things out is because most churches don't make the un-churched fell welcome. I’m not advocating that we have it all figured out, because we don’t, but we work EXTREMELY hard to create a church and services where everyone feels welcome. We are very bold to speak the uncompromising truths of the Bible. We just strive to do it in a relevant, fun and creative way. Honestly, it takes a lot more work to speak and create a relevant worship service that will attract the un-churched and encourage the believer at the same time. The easy way out is just to have church for church people. I can do that with very little effort.
6. Deep is doing not just knowing. I get tired of people telling me how deep they are; just live for God. Deep is living the Christian faith not just knowing a lot about God. Deep is being humble not being a know it all. Deep is being a servant not being a puffed up Christian. Deep is helping others know and grow in their relationship with Christ not the self-centered mentality we see from so many Christians: feed Me, bless ME, help ME, it’s all about me mentality. Deep is living the truth you already know. Friends, DEEP IS DOING! Let’s live the Bible and not try to impress each other with all of this deep stuff. LOVE GOD AND LOVE PEOPLE!
I will leave you with those two leadership lessons today. That’s a lot to chew on for one day.
Kendra and I would love to have you join us for our Launch Team Meeting tomorrow evening at 7pm. The meeting will be held at 908 Westover Terrace, Greensboro. For more information check out our Facebook page The Life Church Greensboro.
