Jesus is Calling

I’ve read and heard many people say that we won’t reach people in the church…that we have to move outside the church in order to reach people.  I think I understand what they mean but I’m not so sure I agree.  
Mark 1:45 says, “However, he went out and began to proclaim it freely, and to spread the matter, so that Jesus could no longer openly enter the city, but was outside in deserted places; and they came to Him from every direction.”
This man went out and told others what Jesus had done for him.  The people knew of his prior condition but now they were seeing a different man.  When we allow Jesus to transform us into His image, when we truly live as Christ, then people will take notice and want to know what happened–how that transformation came about.  They will want to know where we go to church, where they can find that for themselves.  And when they show up at a church where true transformational change is taking place, they will desire to be part of that fellowship and come to know who Jesus is and what He can do in their lives.
Our issue is not the modern day church; it is the modern day version of a walk with Christ.  Our issue is not offering a better program, but rather offering a better display of who Jesus is and what He can do and has done in our lives.  Invite Jesus into your life, your church, and your fellowship and watch Him draw people to Himself.  He is faithful.
