Catalyst Takeaway #5 – We’re all in this Together – We are the Church
Watch this video….
If this doesn’t stir up your heart to make a difference in the world with your life, I don’t know what will… Here are some thoughts that stirred me up at Catalyst:
Lose Your Life, Just so You can Find it – Matthew 10:39 – You have not lived until you’ve surrendered your life to God so He can use your life to make a difference in the lives of others. Forget yourself…Focus on others…Find true life.
What Are YOU Passionate about? – You need to find a cause that you would die for… the lost, the broken, the poor, the slave, the prisoner… find your cause, and give your life to it.
We’re in this Together – Everybody in the body of Christ is important. There is no small or insignificant role. We’re all here for one reason – to reach people for the Kingdom of God. No matter what you do, recognize, it is no small thing in God’s eye.
Get a Mega Vision –Craig Groeschel said he hates the term “Mega Church” how can we call a church mega when there are 4 billion people worldwide that don’t know Christ? Millions starving, millions involved in human trafficking, millions abandoned… We need to increase our vision.
If we Don’t Believe in what the Church is supposed to be, how will the world? -We must believe that the church is the catalyst to bringing the change the world needs through Jesus Christ. Do you believe in the church? Your church? Jesus does. It’s time you start.
Judge Your Church on Sending Capacity, not the Crowd – Anyone can build a crowd… the question is – who is that crowd becoming and what are they doing for the Kingdom as a result of being in your church?
We’re all in this together and together we CAN and WILL change the world.
As Mother Theresa said, “You can do what I can’t do, I can do what you can’t do, together we can do GREAT things.”
What are you doing to change the world?
