We are children of promise. God wants more children, and if we share God’s heart, we’ll have a passion to reach and disciple more and more people. On any given Sunday morning, within a thirty-minute drive, there are 60,000 people who don’t attend church. As a church, we cannot be content to limit God’s family to those of us who are already here. Jesus told His disciples, “Open your eyes and look at the fields! They are ripe for harvest.” (John 4:35) He wasn’t talking about corn or wheat—Jesus was talking about people who needed to have a relationship with the Living God. God wants more children in His forever family.
