The Purpose of This Site

Once this site was just for me. It was a personal blog, journal or diary of my journey with the Lord. However one day reading it I found that this could also be a real testimony to the world. Evangelism is my heart. Jesus is my life. This is my real account of my Christian walk and revelation that I share with you. In all things take them to scripture. I do not claim to be an expert though I study, research and seek the truth daily. My purpose it to stir your heart towards the Heavenly Father so you can pursue your own Journey with the lord through his word and in spirit.

GIving Room for Growth

Serving is a great thing but we cannot be in such a place that our service becomes an obstacle to our mission.  It is very difficult to make sure that we are doing what God has called us to but our search for perfection within the church can suck the life out us and of those around us.  Depleting our resources and making our people unavailable to bring people into a place of transformation. Sometimes is is important to just have church.  If we make it to all of our people who are active in the church are serving who will come and bring the people?

We need to give room for growth because if we do not we will sustain and shortly loose the people we are trying to attract.  We will loose touch with the people around us when our schedule does not allow us to simply pick someone up to bring them along.  The percentage of people of actively move in team and with the vision of the church is very minimal at best.  When we take these servants and busy them up with things the most important thing is ignored.

What are the solutions?  How can we fix these issues.  The best way is to make sure you are aware of who is evangelizing and bringing people in.  Do not overload those people with tasks and things because it is hard enough getting people to come to church early who are serving let alone picking people up to bring them early while they wait a couple of hours in solitude.

This is a great obstacle of the church that is growing but is it is detrimental to growth.  It is important that we understand this is not growth in the church but the kingdom that we are living for others and when we do that even when we do not feel like it many people do not understand church culture. For some getting up early is already a task sitting around while people put things together is not always something a new person to church wants to see and better yet not all people who are coming for the first time are looking to serve.  If we place these things on people too soon we will loose the heart of the people before they can hear the word of God.  The seed will be planted on rocky ground or thorny ground and the life of what once was will not get a root into the ground.  It is important that we realize that our methods are not hurting the one who need us the most.  We may be building a team of people but are we loosing the ones who are the most in desperate need of Jesus?
