True or False: “We are not proclaiming ourselves but Jesus Christ as Lord”

2 Corinthians 4:5 HCSB

What thought do people walk away from our churches with? “That church does cool things” or “Jesus Christ is Lord”? In today’s world of ministry design & branding, which I love, I don’t want 2 Corinthians 4:5 to be untrue of my church. If people walk away with knowledge of how to weave through our church system, but without Jesus, we fail. If I spend more time talking about how cool my church is than I do about Jesus, I fall short of giving them something of eternal value. If I invite people to church, but not to Jesus, I may be just another of millions of sales pitches a person hears along their journey through life.

Logos, signs, T-shirts, websites, Facebook banners, Series graphics will fade away. So lets be sure our ministry design doesn’t overshadow & points people directly to the truth: Jesus Christ is Lord!

  1. Way to go. Sounds “old school.” Nah, that’s not it. Sounds right! Thanks for getting the focus where it needs to be: The Gospel of Jesus. He is and must always be the focus. Jesus is the only IT factor that matters.
