When we planted Vintage Church in 2008, I went fishing. So many doors were opened at the beginning of this new work because I was willing to hit the streets. Salvations, persons of peace, properties for ministry, etc. As God began to grow our church family I began to ignore this first command and instead cluttered my life with church work only spending time with church people. Simply put, I started doing church instead of being the church. I took Satan’s bait.
This is a sobering reminder to always be reaching out to those around you to share the gospel. Don’t get so consumed with the business of ministry, that we forget to do actual ministry.
