You can’t do it all.

September 10, 2008

A post inspired by It by Craig Groeschel

How focused are you? Do you find yourself off track often?

I think one thing that churches can suffer from is direction. What I like about our church is we have two primary goals, to be the hands and feet of Jesus in our community and to help our members be Jesus to theirs. Everything we do is devoted to helping this happen.

It can make it hard because at times people want us to copy what their last church did or was doing. They want to get us to do certain things that may not help with where we are going. They sometimes don’t understand why we turn them down. It is just too easy to get off track and we can’t do it all.

With that said we also often can add something because it doesn’t keep us from our goal. It may help strengthen us. This fall we kick off our Neighborhoods and this is something we believe we can add that will help us stay on track. The only way for people to be Jesus in their world is if they have found heeling and hope in Christ. If someone is missing those what better place to connect them but in a smaller group?

Please pray for these as we get them going. We have no numerical goal because we don’t want to start them just to start them. WE don’t want to have them just so people can eat hot dogs together. That could get us off track and that is something we don’t want to do.

You can’t do it all. Is there anything that you do that you shouldn’t do because of this? Something personal that keeps you from your mission? Professional? At church? Let me know your thoughts.
