Audiences gather for passive observation–as assemblies of spectators. Jesus calls disciples, not audience members.
In the Bible, Christians are portrayed as a family, as an army, as the body of Christ, but never as a passive audience. A group gathered to worship Jesus isn’t an audience. It’s an ekklesia–people “called out” to all pour out adoration and obedience to Him.
I love the non-spectator, unprogrammed, Spirit-led Christianity of the Bible. Outward reformation, without inner transformation, seldom lasts. Jesus changes people from the inside out.
