What’s the Difference?

I’ve been thinking about what makes a difference in the church today. What makes one church successful while another church begins to falter? What makes one ministry flourish and impact lives while another can barely impact the people they already have? I think the difference is risk. Call it what you want (taking chances, ambition, drive…faith) – It’s the churches that aren’t afraid to strive towards their God given vision that succeed, while the ones that wallow around thinking about “what ifs” and fearing what’s around the next corner tend to fail. Sure, there’s room for caution, sure there’s room for processing and making wise decisions, but when those moments of processing and pondering grow into excuses and lack of action, the vision, direction, momentum and effectiveness of the church can be lost…just a thought.
