Have you ever wondered why people came to see Jesus. I mean, yeah, he was a great speaker, and yeah, he was different than anybody else, but I think the big draw, kind of the root of all this is that he was meeting felt needs. For some people that meant he gave them authentic teaching and interpretation of the scriptures. For some people that meant interacting with people in a personal and non-condemning way. For some people that meant healing them of their diseases and deformities. But he always met felt needs.
That's a great example for how our ministries should run. It doesn't matter how fun our program is, how entertaining of a speaker we are, or how interactive our online presence is if we aren't meeting felt needs. JM
