Scripture: 1 John 1:1–1:4
We’ve bought a lie. We think we can accomplish this huge task by giving it 1 out of 168 hours/week. We think we can accomplish it in the small square footage in a handful of buildings. We’ve left the less than .01% of the workers who have been trained as specialists. It can’t happen this way. We will never reach people with the gospel of Jesus with this strategy. But there is a better way. It’s God’s way. God isn’t trying to get people to church, but is trying to get the church to the people. God is challenging HWC in this season to no longer depend on the programs of the church to reach people but instead to see the gospel so alive in us that it is taken to every circle of influence. If we take this challenge, it could be the greatest explosion of kingdom growth we have ever seen.
