We remove barriers
Every person on this planet has barriers, something or some set of things that are keeping them at arms distance from God. Jesus Christ modeled for us the relationships and actions that very intentionally begin to remove those barriers and draw people one step closer to God. These barriers may be:
- Physical – real life issues that distract from God ie. Hunger, sickness, location
- Emotional – hurts carried from prior negative experiences of church or “church people”. These might be personal history barriers like abuse or broken relationships etc.
- Mental – questions about God that have not been answered
