"It Starts With Me" and you
One of the more encouraging changes that is occurring right now within the Christian church is the reawakening to the understanding that it's not okay for us to "cross by on the other side" when it comes to poverty in our communities.
Can a church go too far and replace their primary mission by embracing the fight to end poverty? Probably. We've gone too far trying to change the government via political means, so yes, we can lose our way.
But if a community can go in Jesus' name, never forgetting that He came to seek and to save those who were lost, and make meeting needs part of the task of BEING Jesus in their neighborhoods - then we should.
