Every community has hurting, despairing, lonely and lost people. Churches are known to offer help to such people by event-driven outreach. The problem is; in most cases, once the event is over the person is forgotten.
A true relational relationship with God is moving beyond event-driven-outreach to building a more authentic lasting relationship with people as a outflow of God’s love. This love is not a forced love, or an out-of-pity love, His love is literally a part of us and we cannot help but love others lovingly and it will outlast any event-driven-outreach.
Event-Driven-Outreach stems from EVENT-DRIVEN-CHRISTIANITY whereby your connection to God is measured by attending the Sunday-go-meeting church service or the midweek prayer-less meeting event one day a week, where the programmed performance is performed over and over each Sunday. True authentic spiritually goes far beyond showmanship where a relationship with the bible is demonstrated more than a love relationship with God through Jesus! The Bible is a book that points to Jesus, and no matter how well versed we are in scripture, if we fail to allow it to lead us to Jesus and develop a love relationship with Him on a daily basis rather than some specific Sunday-event-driven attendance or week long spiritual event we have missed the mark!
A love relationship with God will extend a love relationship to and with people that will translate into far more than event-driven-programs to show that we love and care about them!
