In the third week of the “Quit Church” series, Pastor Will Lapian encourages us to quit hoping people will show up. God didn’t simply hope people would come to know Him, but He met us where we are at by sending part of Himself (Jesus) to walk among us. Jesus shared trials & triumphs with ordinary men & women like us. Similarly, we cannot expect people to know the loving, saving, accepting God that we know without giving up part of ourselves (time, finances, empathy) to show them the God we know. We must invite people to church, invest in the mission of the church & their salvation, and include them in our community. In this way, we can quit expecting people to show up & start fulfilling our mission to reach ‘just one more’.
