How’s Your Fruit?

Hey Family!

I hope your weekend was great. I really enjoyed our conversation on last week. Let’s go ahead and delve into this week’s convo!

I know that we put the burden of responsibility on the pastor and the church to be “THAT” example in the earth to draw people. I today BEG TO DIFFER! The burden of responsibility is YOU. You are a walking, talking, living, breathing, billboard for Jesus. Before a person decides to stop their normal Sunday routine, put on clothes, take the time, energy and money to go to a building for 2 hrs with people they don’t know to worship someone that can’t see or feel, (pause and breathe – this a long sentence so far and we are not done yet) they are going to look at you and see if you’re living a life that’s worth all that.

Yes! Perhaps they haven’t accepted your invite because you live to low of a Christian type of life. #Selah

This week I want to discuss The Fruit of the Spirit and how having them affects our everyday living. Before then though let me say this again – Perhaps they haven’t accepted your invite because you live to low of a Christian type of life.  

Looking forward to tomorrow’s conversation.

Oh Boy Do We Have a Problem – Got Community?

Hello Family!

I hope you have been enjoying this week as much I have…
I wanted to talk about our 4th installment of this weeks conversation: “O Boy Do We Have a Problem”
I have a question – Got Community?
Interesting enough the phenomenon of social media has proved one thing to us, milinniuals thrive off of community. They want to be apart of a group, a team, or a mission. There is one minor caveat I must add to that though – as long as it doesn’t threaten their individuality. One of the things that makes social media work for this generation is the community they are able to build and control. If they don’t like a particular person in their community they can kick them out (block or unfollow them). If you want to bait a milinnial offer them community. A place to belong and fit in, somewhere where they can grow and spread their wings.
Because of the lack of genuine relationships in the world, not just the millennial generation, community is key for evangelism for any generation.
I want to challenge you today, what have you created that is inviting for this generation? Are your programs geared towards satisfying that internal quota that says you HAVE to be doing something or is it a genuine well thought out and constructed organism that is a safe place for growth and development?
