The Local Church Needs More Pigs

J.D. Greear answers the question today on his blog, "On What Grounds Should You Move To Another Church?" He warns against the church falling into the common "highly consumerized, no commitment, what's in it for me" mindset of the culture.

He focuses on the need for people to be committed to their local church and the biblical mission/vision it has to reach a lost world for the glory of God. He points out that the local church doesn't just need people who will make contributions, but who are committed. What's the difference?

"It's like the difference in how the chicken and the pig contribute to your eggs and sausage breakfast. The chicken makes a contribution; the pig is committed. Summit needs more pigs."

I think most local churches need more pigs.
