Read Matthew 13:24-30. How do do see the concepts of His Field, His Harvest, and His Workers present in this text?
We talked about the differences between the member-driven and mission-driven church.
A member-driven church says, “the pastors are gifted to serve us.”
A mission-driven church says, “we are all gifted to serve others.”
A member-driven church says, “come to our building.”
A mission-driven church says, “leave to serve and meet needs.”
A member-driven church says, “people worship at the church on Sunday.”
A mission-driven church says, “worship is 24/7.”
A member-driven church emphasizes teaching.
A mission-driven church emphasizes serving.
A member-driven church says, “the leaders tell the gospel.”
A mission-driven church says, “all Christians show and tell the gospel.”
A member-driven church is focused on self.
A mission-driven church is focused on others.
In what ways do you see these things present in our church? In your own life?
In closing…what needs to happen in your own life to fight against the desire to be self-focused? What needs to happen at WestWay so that we are mission-focused? What role will you play in our church becoming more mission-focused? Be specific!
