What is the purpose of going to church? If we are just using the church as a social gathering, then we are missing the mark. There are people right now in our communities that don’t know God. There are children without fathers, without mothers, and families without hope. How are you reaching the lost and distraught? How do they know the church exists and its purpose? As believers, we should minister to those in need and share the gospel with the lost.
Matthew 4:19 (NIV)
19 "Come, follow me," Jesus said, "and I will make you fishers of men."
Isaiah 6:8 (NIV)
8 Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, "Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?" And I said, "Here am I. Send me!"
