Mission Leads to Fellowship

In this video (fast forward to 17:20), Francis Chan points to the relationship between mission and fellowship, arguing that a focus on our mission will inevitably lead to a desire for fellowship within the Christian community.  Although I’m not sure I would agree with all of what he said, I think his main point is absolutely right.  We shouldn’t pit our calling as ambassadors for Christ in the world against biblical exhortations to gather together in community.  Rather, both realities serve to bolster each other.  That being said, it seems that many of us struggle with the mission component.

Chan’s main point is that if we neglect our mission, our fellowship will suffer.  Conversely, if we embrace our calling to make disciples, we will see our meetings become more life-giving and significant.
