Jesus was a rebel who broke many rules of the religious patterns established by the people of his day. Instead of pleasing the masses, he focused on spreading unconditional love and putting faith into action.
His all-inclusive ministry wasn’t defined by denomination, worship style, entertainment value, race, sexual orientation or gender.
Imagine the possibilities if we, the church, shifted our focus from “Where is everyone?” to seeking ways to reach out to the broken and needy.
This message is an excerpt from “Give us this day: Who needs church? We do” by Anita Kuntz in the October 2017 issue of Gather magazine.
