What did the visitors see?

April 11, 2007

I spoke with a friend yesterday who was telling me about her Easter experience. Knowing that more people attend church on Easter than any other day of the year, and knowing many of the visitors do not believe in Christ she had taken a step back to look at what a visitor might experience at her church. She paid attention to the children’s behavior, the adult’s attitudes, the pastor’s sermon, expressions from people regarding their stress, etc.

What did a visitor see at your church? Outside of the program did they see something different than they would have at a neighborhood barbeque or a local sports event? If we are God’s representatives to those around us, how well did the global church do in representing Christ this Easter? Did those around us see God in us and through us?

“Be wise in the way you act toward outsiders; make the most of every opportunity. Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone.” Colossians 4:5-6
