My 1 word from Interrupted is: Rethink.
Day 44: Offering a Tangible Kingdom
My favorite part from today’s reading is this:
Believer, your pastor or your church can never reach your coworker like you can. They do not have the sway over your neighbor who has been entrusted to you. No one better than you can love your wayward brother. One decent sermon cannot influence a disoriented person in the same way your consistent presence in her life can. While organized religion provokes mostly skepticism for the average postmodern, a genuine relationship with a Christ follower on mission can reframe the kingdom, making a fresh perspective possible. Then that person discovers that church is not a place you go – it’s a people you belong with. The building is simply the place where you celebrate God together. (Interrupted pg 207)
Amen to that! Church – a people you belong with.
That’s what I want our church to be. And I want so badly for the people inside our church to get that they are making the kingdom impact with those non-believers around them every single day. We are the ones that those have been entrusted to by God.
It is up to us to accept the uncomfortable challenge of being bold and trusting God to guide us in being the church on a daily basis.
Do we leave this responsibility for the Pastor so many times?
