Our church is tasked with the commission of making disciples, so how do we do that? It starts with two questions:
1. Who can we serve in the community?
2. What can we give to our community?
Until our community understands that we love them and want to authentically demonstrate that love, it is hard to establish genuine relationships with them. Too often the church is reviewed suspiciously and misunderstood because we have failed to show real concern for those around us.
Fulfilling the command, “to make disciples”, starts with making genuine relationships. Our job is to love people in order to tell them about Jesus’ love.
