We need to be people who are welcoming. It’s a simple thing, really. Outsiders do not want to be part of a clique. We need to build the kingdom by welcoming others. In other words, we need to be friendly and personable. We may be set apart, but we do not stand apart. We are to be in this world but not of it. We need to build networks of people to help encourage each other.
Let’s build friendly, welcoming networks in order to build up the church.
