In last week’s newsletter, I asked the question, “Do you want to help people?” I hope you’ve been thinking deeply about that question this week.
Once we establish that we have the “want to,” we must then consider the “how to.”
The key components to helping people are the heart and know how. We become known by how we help people. When we describe our ministry, our words of life are how-centered. When we encourage people to “follow Jesus,” “worship through the storm” or “speak words of life,” we provide a recipe for change. It’s not enough to call someone up higher. We must show them how to make the climb.
Therefore, we must consistently study our ministry methodology. We modify. We adjust how we perform our how.
One of the many considerations we must navigate is to select a vehicle to deliver our message. I’ve written often about the importance of message strategy but today’s focus is about the distribution of the message. How do we tell people about how we can help their felt need?
The cover of May 2019’s The Writer magazine blares the following words:
