“It’s pretty apparent that the ministry that Jesus had while on earth created a lot of buzz. Word about what he was doing spread rapidly throughout the region. The question that raised in my mind is this: Do you think his ministry can still generate that kind of buzz today? What would our churches have to look like so that people’s lives were transformed to the point that their excitement could not be contained?”
Are we working more to market our ministry, or to seek God’s power and communicate what he’s already doing within our church. When God shows up, people notice. And in the end, that means a lot more than another flashy mailer or trendy sermon series.
