Brave: An Inside Look – When Outreach Becomes Overreach

By November 5, 2014An Inside Look

We have a commission from Jesus to reach the world with the Gospel. We also have a culture saturated with the information of religion. Our methods are missing the mark. Many times we overreach and are left standing in the muddy waters of an issue-based gospel. Many people already know the broad strokes of Christianity. For the most part, they don’t like what they see or hear. So, how do we fulfill His commission in our culture? We live in a time when standing on a street corner or handing out a tract just won’t cut it anymore. What challenges do we face when we think about inviting someone to church? What religious obstacles are in place? How can we follow the leading of the Holy Spirit?
