Matthew 28:18-20

Isn’t the job of pursuing kids with families a staff thing? Yes and no. Pursuing people is a follower-of-Jesus thing. We are all called to pursue people. When Jesus said these last words, it was a word for all of us, not specifically to those whose job is vocational ministry. “You” is implied in Jesus command to “go and make disciples.” Jesus’ authority is for all of us. Jesus’ presence and power is for all of us. So who are you pursuing?

Do you know your neighbors and where they are spiritually? What about the families of the kids who play soccer with your kids?

When is the last time you invited someone to come with you to church? When is the last time you shared the gospel? It’s time for all of us to pursue the lost. Don’t wait until you know more. Don’t wait until a building is built. The time is now.
