As Pastors and leaders, when it comes to the number of people in our churches, we are not supposed to be motivated by numbers merely for the sake of numbers. In Ecclesiastes 4:12; “A person standing alone can be attacked and defeated, but two can stand back-to-back and conquer. Three are even better, for a triple-braided cord is not easily broken.” There is strength in numbers.
An increase in numbers can also represent increased strength in unity. This united strength allows us to go out into our communities with the gospel, advancing the kingdom of God. Let us continue to pray and expect the Lord of the harvest to send laborers to help us in His vineyard.
