BLUEPRINT: BUILDING A BETTER CHURCH

Leverage Everything

Pastor Joe Lay

May 19, 2019


For we are co-workers in God's service; you are God's field, God's building... Don't you know that you yourselves are God's temple and that God's Spirit dwells in your midst?

--1st Corinthians 3:9,16


WE WILL LEVERAGE EVERYTHING TO REACH PEOPLE WHO DON'T KNOW CHRIST.

TO REACH PEOPLE NO ONE IS REACHING, WE'LL DO THINGS NO ONE IS DOING.



On hearing this, Jesus said to them, "It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick. I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners."

-Mark 2:17 NIV


A few days later, when Jesus again entered Capernaum, the people heard that he had come home. They gathered in such large numbers that there was no room left, not even outside the door, and He preached the word to them. Some men came, bringing to Him a paralyzed man, carried by four of them. Since they could not get him to Jesus because of the crowd, they made an opening in the roof above Jesus by digging through it and then lowered the mat the man was lying on. When Jesus saw their faith, He said to the paralyzed man, "Son, your sins are forgiven."

-Mark 2:1-5 NIV
