I went inside Saint-André for a brief moment this afternoon, and the chairs that line up the cathedral reminded me of some words that were said at fellowship last night. They made me think. Is the number of people that attend our fellowship or church that important, an indicator of how “successful” we are? What good is it if we have a room full of attendees, yet their hearts aren’t in Christ? Sometimes we get so caught up with filling up a physical building that we forget where true devotion dwells – within the heart. So we search for bigger, “better” churches, or are satisfied because x people came to fellowship this week. What really matters, the count or the cause?
