Reach Out?

The question for the church is…

Can we reach out?

or maybe the question is…

Are we reaching out?

Or maybe the question is…

Do we think we are reaching out but we are really only reaching in… to ourselves?

Is it bad to reach in and minister to each other in the church?

No, we are commanded to do that.

Do we sometimes confuse reaching out the lost with events and ministries that are only reaching in?

Yes…

If we are reaching out maybe we should ask…

Who outside of the church do we want to touch? Do we want to minister to?

Are we really going to our community to show them we care?  Do they know it?

I think sometimes we just do things that are safe and easy for us.  The real hard work of connecting to the community we would rather not do. It would mean going and doing things that might not be convenient for us.  It would take an extra effort on our part to reach out…

reaching out is hard.

Its easier to just reach in.

WWJD?

He would reach out…

WWJW?

He Wants us to reach out.

Are we?

or are we just…

reaching in?

  1. Being obedient to God’s Word is not easy…we must be willing to incur risks or make great sacrifices! May God give us the boldness of Paul – who was never ashamed of the Gospel!!
