Ephesians 4:32 Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.
The other day I was listening to the podcast “Rainer On Leadership”. I came across an episode called “Six Ways a Church Failed the Guest Friendliness Test”. One of the 6 ways was a failure to have proper signage outside and inside the church. Guest could not find where anything was or even what time the services were held. It is an excellent podcast and I would recommend it to any church leadership. That got me to thinking about the signage outside and inside of our church. That then got me to thinking about how we could improve the signage outside of our church. Then it came to me. The best sign for our church, or any other church for that matter, is not a piece of metal or plastic in front of the church. The best sign for a church is the people of the church. Right or wrong, whether we like it or not, people judge our faith, and the church, by how we treat others and how we act/react when life is tough. Are we bias, racist, sexist, elitist, or exclusive, is our language pure, do we value others and their needs more than our own? All of these are signs in our lives that speak volumes about our relationship with Jesus Christ. Our lives are a living sign of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and His great love.
What does your sign say today?
