I pray that the sharing of your faith may become effective when you perceive all the good that we may do for Christ. Philemon 1:6

The diagram makes it look so cut and dry so simple.  But being effective as the church looks a lot different.  We must constantly be asking how to balance love, forgiveness, discipleship, death, and resurrection with success.  Following Jesus must mean something; it must change how we live, what we say, how we spend our money, how we vote, etc.  But being an effective follower doesn’t always mean success.  When you look at the diagram, as a Christian look first to the center, and for us that is the Cross!
