There is a phrase I keep hearing over and over again…that I just don’t understand. The phrase is “getting it done”. I read it in blog posts…I hear it at conferences…and listen to pastors use it to “one up” each other. The thing I don’t understand about the phrase “getting it done”…it is almost always used when talking about worship attendance.
It would seem to me that a church that is fulfilling all areas of Matthew 28:18-20 is actually “getting it done”. That would include teaching and discipling…not just the going and baptizing part.
How can a church that baptizes 100 people a year, yet only get 1/2 of them into the discipleship process be considered “getting it done”? How can a church that has 3,000 people walking in the front door each month while 300 people walk out the back door be considered “getting it done”? How can a church with 1,500 in weekly worship attendance and less than 60% of them in a regular Bible study be considered “getting it done”?
