Why We Reach Out

Creflo Dollar wants a $65 million jet in order to better reach people for Christ. Matthew 28:16-20 and the various other Great Commissions sprinkled throughout the Gospels make clear that Creflo is onto something – at least somewhat. Making disciples for Christ is our divinely ordained task – not some side activity. Yet, a jet might not really be what is needed. A better interpretation of Matthew 28 is not “go” but “as you go” that is to say that we should look only at distant continents but the three feet around us. It does not take millions of dollars, a megachurch, and G650. God empowers us all to reach out as we go.
