"You Need to Join the Church!"
“To God be the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus for all time, forever and ever! Amen” Ephesians 3: 21 TEV
One of the ways we show God’s glory is by joining His family. The Bible reminds us that one day there will be a new heaven and a new earth. The only thing that’s going to last for eternity is God’s family.
When you turn on your PC and see Microsoft or to order on Amazon you probably think those things are really great. But those things are relatively young. Someday they’ll be old and gone. Perhaps there won’t be a Hollywood or even a United States. After all, no civilization has lasted terribly long from God’s perspective.
But the one thing that will still exist is the family of God. It’s the only thing that’s going to last. We believe God created congregations. It is meant to be a spiritual family where we live and grow in our faith together.
We get to use our time, talent and treasure in God’s mission. That’s why it’s really important that you become part of it. It’s going to outlast everything else you do.
You may have hobbies, career or significant things that you do in your life. The truth of the matter is those things are only going to last for your life on earth. What is going to last beyond your life is that you are part of the body of Christ. God’s people and Word will last forever. You want to be part of that!
Peace in the Lord,
