No More Programs, Just Jesus

The world doesn't need more programs or glitzy, celebrity-driven presentations of information about the Christian faith. The world needs ordinary people reaching out to other ordinary people with the love that comes from the Savior of the world. The good news that saves human beings from sin, death, and futility and gives them life with God forever is centered in relationship with Jesus Christ. And Christ almost initiates the relationships with him into which people enter through the loving relationships they enjoy with those who already follow Jesus.

So true! The pure gospel message is what the world needs. It's almost too easy, right? I sometimes think even the church relies too often on glitzy programs to attract people...sadly.
