The Gospel.

 

 

We live in a society that the world of “entertainment” is at the heart of everything. When we go to church, we have to be entertained all the time.  Our attention spans only last for 20-30 min for a sermon, and then we begin to doodle on our notes sheet.  Many churches are starting to utilize and spend thousands and thousands of dollars on lighting  consoles, hazers, LEDs etc…  Which can absolutely create a very powerful environment (like that at worship conferences such as Passion in Atlanta, GA.)  However, if we put the majority of our focus on the image we present on stage.  Or have a ministry for every little thing one can think of, we have missed the point.  The point of having different ministries within a church or an organization is to share the gospel with more people. NOT to brag about how many numbers you can bring in on a Sunday morning.

We that our worship leaders can write some cool chords and lyrics every now and then…  But with out the breath of God, it is all pointless.  The bible tells us in Matthew 28:19-20 it says,

“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, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

I challenge you to utilize all the resources God has blessed you and your church/ministry with.  But I also challenge you to make sure that the gospel is the primary focus of it all.

 

Playing for Him! Matt
