A law of physics, and a spiritual law. If a church (Body of Christ) is not moving, not causing motion and a co-motion, it will stand still, motionless. Not moving, touching or changing anything or anyone.
It will stay that way, unless the church is “Bumped” and forced to move forward. Some need to get some bump going on! New vision, new passion & direction.
Signs of a body (Church) at Rest:
No Vision for moving forward
None or very few Baptisms
No new small groups
No new “Kids stuff” going on
No communityÂ involvement
No diversity inside the church
A Body In Motion
If a church is moving, it tends to continue to move unless interrupted from an outside force. It’s called momentum. Be careful of pride! You may be moving forward, but then something like pride can come and “force” a slow down if not a full stop!
Signs of a body (Church) in Motion:
More leaders arising
More connections for true relationship
More churches being planted
More groups started
More people coming to Christ
More of the community being touched
More of the church coming in line with vision
MoreÂ diversityÂ inside that matches the outside
Individuals taking personalÂ responsibilityÂ for Â outreach
So, how is your church moving? Do you have momentum? What say you?
