A fruitful yield

Here’s a radio-minute that aired nationally this week on Q Place’s Walk the Way:

This Walk the Way. Brought to you by Q Place. I’m Jeff Klein

When I was younger, I learned this little poem with hand motions to match – maybe you did, too: this is the church, this is the steeple, open the doors and see all the people!

But I never taught it to my own kids.

How did we come to believe that the measuring stick for the fruitfulness of the church was based on see my steeple? See all the people sitting inside?

We need new yardsticks! What about this:

This is the church. Look how many of our people are walking alongside a neighbor or friend to help them understand the good news about Jesus.

This is the Church. Every believer is one of our priests, gifted to serve.

This is the Church. We GO as Jesus’ disciples daily, intentionally carrying the love of Jesus where we live, work, and play.

Jesus said that you could judge a tree by the fruit it produces. What are you bearing?
