If you were to ask yourself that question what would your answer be? If your church members answered that question what would their answer be? How about church staff/elders? If a visitor walked in the doors of your church what would they, after spending some time with you, say your church is pursuing? If they spent time with you on a personal level what would be their assessment of what you, as an individual are pursuing?
Not what do you say you pursue but what you are actively, actually pursuing?
I wonder sometimes if the reality of the matter is that we need a better answer to that question. It is easy to pursue status quo. It is easy to pursue tradition. It is easy to pursue pleasing people. None of that is risky.
Pursuing God is risky but churches are often risk averse. Discipleship necessitates taking risk and will not be achieved through the pursuit of what comes natural to us.
So what are you pursuing and is your answer sufficient…because we ultimate find the things we pursue.
