Artwork for Dropping Your Guard: The Value of Open Relationships

A vast difference exists between watching something happen and being involved in what happens. For many, church becomes a “spectator sport”—a few exhausted, burned-out believers knock themselves out to run the ministries and activities, while the majority sit back and observe from a distance. This is a far cry from the way the body of Christ was designed to function! In this message, we’ll focus on the problems of “spectatorism” and how we as members of the church body can overcome congregational apathy. The ancient Hebrews were forced to work together and get involved in taking the land of Canaan. In their example, we find some practical direction for our own lives.
