In every organisation there is the inevitable encroachment of mediocrity and the appeal of compromise. I hear very often. ‘can we make it easy for Christians to be in mission?’ Of course you can, but if you do they will not have the opportunity of being rejected which was the experience of the 72 disciples and that led to joy! I hear, ‘Can we make the Christian life feel as comfortable as possible?’ Of course you can, but if you do, you will miss out on deliberately helping people develop their faith. If your goal is to help people become who they are meant to be in Christ, please understand that the easiest way to do that is to compromise less, not more. Invite someone to participate into the mission of God and get to know Christ and his church.
