The One Thing – the surprisingly simple truth behind extraordinary results, published in 2013 was written by Gary W. Keller and Jay Papasan.
The ‘one thing’ is important to ask ourselves if we seek to be productive and focus on what is most important.
It is essential for the local church to know its ‘one thing’.
Things a local church may do well
- worship music
- youth ministry
- church suppers and yard sales!
But what SHOULD be the local church’s priority?
It is found in the Great Commission – Matthew 28:19,20 – to make disciples.
This priority was not only commanded by Jesus, it was demonstrated by Jesus. He was able to leave His work to be carried on by the men He had discipled.

Do you agree?
Let me know if you agree or not. If you don’t, tell me what you think the church’s ‘one thing’ is supposed to be. You can comment on my blog at www.shirleydemerchant.com or on the LOOKING FOR MORE PODCAST COMMUNITY Facebook page.
