Let’s Do Both

—HEART TO HEART— Many years ago, I read a book by Ron Auch titled, “The Jesus Sensitive Church”. It was in response to the ‘seeker sensitive’ movement in church growth. Both philosophies had some good points. We are living in the real world. We must be attractive enough to the world in order to reach the reach them for Jesus. Jesus reached people, but He never compromised the Gospel in order to do that. He was sensitive to the seeker. Just read how He responded to the woman at the well or how He had compassion on the hungry multitude. We must be aware of our culture and relate to them in a way that both honors God and makes people hunger for more. Being sensitive to people, loving people, respecting people, honoring people is being both seeker sensitive and Jesus sensitive. Let’s do both. –Pastor Allen
