Could it be that today people are not rejecting God as much as they are rejecting church? Churchianity can be recognized externally as a kind of religious club where people, largely of same social status or class, and bound together by a mutual interest in some religious project or program, meet together to advance that particular cause. But that is a far cry from true Christianity which consists of individuals who share the same Divine Life, who are made up of all ages, backgrounds, classes and status-levels of society, and who, when meeting together, manifest the Life of Jesus Christ.
How will we accomplish this lifesaving mission? We must make the people around us in our realms a priority. We must take time, get to know them and understand their needs. Only then can we introduce them to a God who can meet all of these needs. Once they establish a relationship with God, we must connect them to fellow believers in family of God. Imagine what would happen if every local “station” of God’s lifesaving business in Norman united around a lifesaving mission.
