Mark 1; Mark 2
Scripture Text: Mark 2:1-2
And again he entered into Capernaum after some days; and it was noised that he was in the house.
2 And straightway many were gathered together, insomuch that there was no room to receive them, no, not so much as about the door: and he preached the word unto them.
Jesus is in the House
I think that it is safe to say that while the church is a spiritual entity it is also a business. There are two sides to the church. There is the organism, that is the spiritual reality of the church. Then there is the organization, which is the infrastructure of the church.
Anything that is a business will tell you that one of the things that you must have in order for business to flourish and be successful, is that you must have a good business plan.
Apart and parcel of that business plan has to be a good marketing strategy. Because, if you don't market your product, it doesn't say much about what you think about your product. You must have a marketing strategy so that you know who it is that you want to target, who it is you want to draw, who it is that you think is drawn to you.
But one of the dangers in this new day of church competition, is that sometimes you can get so caught up in competing, that you substitute MARKETING FOR MINISTRY. You can spend so much time in competition, that now you spend all of your time marketing your church, and not ministering to the masses.
The church should be a place that stands on the blood of Jesus and on the cross of Calvary that tells EVERY man, woman, boy and girl . . . WHAT CAN WASH AWAY MY SINS? NOTHING BUT THE BLOOD OF JESUS.
May I suggest to you that the greatest PR you can do in the church is to noise everywhere that Jesus is in the house. If you really want to market the church, what you ought to be telling people is that Jesus is in the house.
How do you know when Jesus is in the house?
I. You know when Jesus is in the house; because the house is filled with people who are in touch with their imperfections.
II. You know Jesus is in the house, when the people there aren't satisfied with just a touch, but want transformation.
God is not out after blessing you only; He's after getting YOU.
As a matter of fact, God would rather keep the blessing and work on you, because God is after your life.
- He's not after you driving a fancy car; wearing fancy clothes.
- God is interested and concerned about transforming your life so that when people see you, they see a change in your attitude; and a change in your activity; and a change in your tastes; and a change in your surroundings!!!
