We can get so easily entangled and ensnared in the internal issues, questions, and personal situations in our churches that it’s hard to remember that the primary reason we remain on this planet is to reach the people "out there." Just like commercial organizations need to get their focus off themselves, we as individual Christians and collective churches need to recalibrate our sights on the mission God has given us: reaching spiritually lost people. Only as we begin to value those outside our Christian circles will we be truly fulfilled and functioning according to God’s purpose for us.
—Bill Hybels and Mark Mittelberg, Becoming a Contagious Christian
