During our trip to Africa, I mentioned that we spent time with Makerere Community Church in Kampala, Uganda. Martin Sempa is the senior pastor and founder of this church. I had a chance to talk extensively with him on Tuesday and we connected as brothers and pastors. It was a blessed conversation.
At one point I referenced the huge and ornate mosque built on the top of the highest hill in Kampala. It is a Saudi funded project and is visible from just about everywhere in the city.
Martin had this to say: "Christians think about knocking on doors and discipling people. Muslims think of discipling nations. Jesus called us to disciple the nations."
That was a profound statement to me.
Are we guilty of thinking too small and being too easily satisfied in our approach to reaching people?
