Go and make disciples. . .

The goal of a church is reproduction. We are called to “love one another,” and what greater love can we understand than the love within a family, and between a parent and child. We need that intimate touch, as Jesus did when he used spit to heal the blind man’s sight. Wow – it’s the touch that people miss. We can’t touch people’s lives for Christ if we don’t want to figuratively get that close to them. We need to get to a place where we can spit in people’s eyes and have them spit in our eye. We need that level of intimacy in order to reproduce spiritual children.
