These quotes are meant to stir our minds to consider the truths regarding God and His Word. Please comment below regarding any of these comments and remember to be considerate and graceful if there is a disagreement.

1. Is community outreach necessary for church health?

While it’s true that the church can’t grow unless people get saved does an assembly need to be doing outreach within the community to be healthy? Is it possible to be alive and vibrant without reaching out to those around?

2. Does God always love us?

We know God is love and that He is a loving God towards us. How do we understand that truth when we are not yet perfect?

    If we love God, we should be the most loving toward others. If we love the Lord we will one another, we will want to share that love with the watching world. These two important ideas are linked by Christ in John 13:34-35 when He said, “A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another. By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.”

    A New Testament distinctive is seeing souls saved and brought to the loving care of our Master, the Lord Jesus Christ. There is no other joy in the life of a believer and in the life of an assembly than seeing lost souls saved. If your assembly is feeling low, our knees need to be red with the prayers of the saints and our hearts full for the caring of souls.

    Is there any way to respond to the topics without using Twitter? I don’t have a Twitter account, and don’t plan on getting one.

    1. Is community outreach necessary for church health?

    The difficulty with the question is that so many Christians today don’t live in the community where their church is located. Thus their most effective witness as individuals is probably in their own neighbourhoods and places of employment, where they are most known, trusted and respected.

    I believe a church can be healthy so long as its members are consistent witnesses for Christ wherever they happen to be. If that happens to be the same geographic area as the church they attend, so much the better.
