Fleshing out my Thoughts
I have been trying to figure out how a church could really help meet needs and reach people. Here is one thought that has come to my mind and I would love to hear some thoughts about it. What if a church were to find a person/family that was in need of some things like food, house work, clothing, etc. and the church spent the next few months or even years to try to meet those needs. During this time the people of the church would be in constant contact with this person/family and continually sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ with them. In other words, the church actually invested their time, resources, and lives into a particular person/family over the long haul with the hopes of reaching them for Jesus Christ. I am sure there is more to think about through this, but this has been a thought of mine this morning. Wouldn't it be great if the church became that sort of light in the community?
