We Are Not Called to Cater to Customers

Ed Stetzer:

“Too many churches love their comfort more than their mission.

The fact is, your church probably needs to be less focused on what makes it happy and more focused on what pleases Jesus. This is an easy trap to fall into because it happens very subtly.

The fact is that most churches have worked very hard to get to a place where congregational customers are happy–their needs are met. The problem is that we are not called to cater to customers. We are called to equip co-laborers.”

The problem is that customers pay money. Co-laborers are not a dependable income base.
