Reaching is More than Preaching
Reaching out to people. That’s what life is all about. That’s what Christ came to do and commissioned us to do when He left.
How can we love one another without reaching out? It’s mind boggling to me that we think we can be faithful to God and live our Christian lives without getting our hands dirty. Hurting people are all around us but we seldom reach out. It’s even easier to justify in a global pandemic - yet that is our mandate. It’s not just about preaching the gospel, it’s about reaching people! Helping people. Loving people. Discipling people, and being disciples.
“Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”” Matthew 28:18-20
