Christ Also Loved the Church –
What’s the first thing you could say when people ask you anything about our church? Answer: I LOVE MY CHURCH. Should we love our church? Well, Christ certainly does. Christ loved the church the way a man should love his wife. In fact, Jesus died – sacrificed himself – for the church.
Church Maintains Society –
Church Maintains Society. Romans chapter 1 gives us an amazing word picture of what happens to a person and people away from God. This happens to every person even those who once knew God. Church prevents what could happen. Pay attention. This could, one day, be you, your dearest loved one, your spouse, your child, your grandchild, or anyone for whom you care. This is extremely serious. Romans 1:21 says ‘Yes, THEY KNEW GOD, BUT…’
Get Your Hopes Up –
I remember being positive during a stormy experience. I was told, ‘Don’t get your hopes up.’ This was so wrong. Tough times are the times to get your hopes up. It’s when disturbing things are happening that we need to put our hope in God. If you are going to receive everything that god has for you, you need to get your hopes up and watch God work.
Extraordinary People –
Average people have average problems. Ordinary people have ordinary problems. But, you agreed you are not average and not ordinary. You are a child of God. You are extraordinary. This means you and I will not have average and ordinary problems. We will have extraordinary problems. In reality, the more extraordinary your life is, the more extraordinary your problems.
No Excuses –
A reason I Love My Church is it challenges my excuses for failure and pushes me to follow my dreams to succeed in all of life. The Lord doesn’t want to hear our excuses. Excuses only say something is bigger than, more powerful than, and more important than God.
