When you think about the church, and the mission we have to go and reach others with the truth and love of Christ … well, that’s quite a movement. And on yesterday’s Bold Steps program, Pastor Mark Jobe revealed that beneath this mighty movement, there must be more than just a sense of duty or religious obligation. There needs to be a driving force of compassion. In fact, all throughout the Gospel we see how compassion drove Jesus and His followers to acts of service and engagement … that literally changed the world. And today, Mark continues this poignant lesson from the book of Matthew, chapter 9 … by explaining what it means to close the God Gap.
