“The only way you can reach someone that no one is reaching is to do something that no one is doing.” Craig Groeschel. Why would Andy Stanley think this is a huge statement? Because it is.
We have to be ready to present an unchanging message in new ways to connect with new people groups. What are some new people groups that you have been trying to reach this year? Have you tried to reach the homeless? Have you tried to reach unwed Moms? Have you tried to reach webheads? Have you tried to reach the families on your kid’s soccer team? How about the barrister at Starbucks that knows exactly what you want to drink? Successful? How are you trying to share the gospel? It has been said that doing the same thing over and over and expecting to get different results is the definition of insanity. Are you going crazy, or are you willing to have people call you crazy because you want people to get IT?

- Preach the gospel at all times, and when necessary use words. – St. Francis Assisi
