The Focus Group

You know what’s ironic? Most churches, including most church plants, today tend to “target” (whether intentionally or unintentionally) the rich and the religious. But when we look at the life of Jesus, such as in today’s reading (Matthew 19), we see that those are the two groups that had the most difficulty with Him, and were least likely to follow Him.

The group who were most attracted and most likely to follow Him? The sinful.

So why aren’t churches, and church plants, focusing on the people considered the most sinful in their towns???

I’ll try it. Anyone want to join me?
