Last week, we gleaned our thoughts from John chapter 21. As you recall, the focus of our thoughts was centered around casting our nets on the other side of the boat. In our case, as it applies to us, this equates to a willingness to do things differently in the future than in the past. Covid-19 has changed the landscape of how churches reach the lost. However, on a good note, it has opened a new avenue to draw those seeking a relationship with Christ to do so within the privacy of their own homes. This provides us with a tremendous opportunity to put the gospel into the ears of many whom otherwise would not hear it. It also gives this group an opportunity to SEE us, FEEL us and to get to know us, which means their physical visit would be less intimidating. Consider this, during the Covid shutdown, more people tuned in to our broadcast on one Sunday, than have visited the building in an entire year - that is powerful.
With that said, it behooves us to take advantage of modern technology to reach the lost. Therefore, plans are in the making to enact such changes in 2022 which will set the direction of our congregation on an upward path regarding our evangelism. We will utilize everything at our disposal to reach our community; as we demonstrate to all, Jesus is the answer for the world today. So, strap in and hang on, it’s going to be an exciting year full of various methods to reach the lost. This will be different from the methods which have traditionally defined our congregation. We ask all to cover our plans in prayer for the guidance of the Holy Spirit as we seek to embark on this heavenward direction. May God be praised!
