Healthy Churches

If feels counter-intuitive, but I think healthy churches are messy and unhealthy churches often aren't messy at all.

A healthy church will be reaching people who are far from God with the Gospel and those people come to Christ with messed up lives.  Being a fisherman is messy business, and being a fisher of men is too.  You’ve got to catch a fish before you can clean it.

Unhealthy churches can actually be very clean, neat and easy. When you aren't seeing people coming to faith in Christ - there isn't a lot of messiness... just pettiness.
