Go And Do

“Go and Do.”  

In the last entry, back in October 2019, I wrote about an invitation and attitude of Jesus that was prevalent throughout his ministry; His was a “come and see” ministry.  He was invitational, and He calls us today to be invitational as well. Church is not an exclusive club, but an inclusive community. “Come and see!”

I also mentioned, at the end of the entry: “Stay tuned for the next entry, two weeks from now, on the second invitation of Jesus.”  Well, that was the longest two weeks of my life! It’s now January 2020, and as can happen, time got away. I wound up leading five memorial services soon after October ended, and helping minister to the families whose loved ones had passed away. 

“Come and See”

We currently are in the middle of a Sunday series called “Coming and Going.” It is based on a
book by Robert Schnase called Five Practices of Fruitful Congregations, but more importantly,
based on two important invitations of Jesus.

The first invitation is when he told some people who were wondering where He was staying
(and, more than that I believe, were wondering about HIM), “Come and see.” One of those
men was Andrew, who became the first of Jesus’ disciples. Andrew must have been impacted
by those words, because in the gospel accounts we have of Andrew, he was often bringing
people to Jesus – in other words, to “come and see.”

FOCUSING OUTWARD

“… go and make disciples….” (Matthew 28:19)

I love Community Christian Church of Marana!  I appreciate our history, am in awe of our commitment to outreach (made evident by the purchase last fall of the Puma Rd. property on which our Outreach Center sits, and current planning to develop the property), and admire the incredible faith I see in so many of our people.  I also believe that diversity of age, life experience, and ethnic backgrounds make our congregation richer than if we were all the same.  I am a better person because my family and I get to “be church” with you.
