What creates REVERB in your home? Out in our community? Or right here? It is time to find a way to get the attention of our community and while we have their attention, tell them about Jesus.
Yet here is the fact. It is hard for me and for many of us to really understand where lost people, what unchurched people think, how lost people respond. That means we have to find some common ground. Who do you think is gonna move? It has to be us. No question.
We are trying to be cutting edge and sharp. We want to be touching lives of people out there and away from God. Far too often we trying to relevant, we are answering question, we are talking in some of the right places, but we are not answering the questions that lost people are asking and nowhere near where lost people really are.
I long to be where lost people, answering question that people who aren't in church are asking and seeing God work in huge, huge ways. But that takes some changes and major adjustment. Are we willing? But it might be uncomfortable. Are we willing? The big question is: do we really care about lost people? If we do, we have to take some new direction as individuals and as a church.
Jesus created REVERB. We are to do the same. My point in this series is that we must reflect and amplify the love of God.
1 John 4:12 (nlt) --- No one has seen God as any time; if we love one another, God abides in us, and His love is perfected in us.
