I am thankful for his ministry. His new book is a helpful resource for churches who are working to create a culture of mission. I’ll be at The Summit Church preaching on mission later this month—and will be sure to quote him to his congregation!
I’ve shared 20 truths from a new book I’ve enjoyed. Below are 20 truths from J. Jesus did not say come and grow, but come and die. We gain by giving away.
What we achieve by building our personal platform will never be as great as what God achieves through what we give away in faith. Study after study shows that most Christians have never even shared their faith—most indicating that somewhere 90 percent of evangelicals have never shared their faith with anyone outside of their family. The church is now Jesus’ vehicle for the completion of his mission. Jesus finished the purchase of our salvation, paying the full price for our sin on the cross and shattering the powers of death in the resurrection, but the mission of salvation is not yet complete. Blessing the community might certainly include growing a big church, but it would also mean giving away some of our resources. The question is no longer if we are called, only where and how. Are there mission fields in our backyards that could contribute to the global spread of the gospel that we have overlooked because they don’t enhance the bottom line of our church?
