Matthew 4:25; Mark 12:37
One of the impressive characteristics of Jesus’ ministry was that it attracted crowds, Large crowds, Enormous crowds.
King James version calls them ‘Multitudes’
What attracted Large crowds to Jesus’ Ministry?
Jesus attracted crowds by loving unbelievers Luke 7:34
Loving unbelievers like Jesus did I John 4:8
Creating an atmosphere of acceptance (Long before the pastor preaches, the visitors are already deciding if they will come back)
Leadership/congregation must be loving (Our world is filled with lonely people who are starving for the affirmation of a loving touch)
Accepting without approving (We cannot expect unbelievers to act like believers until they are believers) I Cor. 5:9-12
