Week 5: "Loving the Church is Sharing the Gospel"
“You are the light of the world.” (Matthew 5:14)
In Jesus’ time they had small wicker oil lamps, which gave little light in the average home that had few windows; they were most effective when set on a lampstand. Even the smallest of lights lifted up can chase away darkness.
Light removes the darkness.
If our church ceased to exist, would the neighborhood mourn? Would they say, ‘No! You can’t go!’ Or, if we were to cease to exist, would the neighborhood even notice? We must be a church that they would miss—not for our own sake or our own reputations, but because they are experiencing Jesus when they experience us. Please join us as we learn how to be a church that others will miss.
