-Hebrews 10:24-25 (NIV)
God calls us together to be a body of believers. As Christians, we become part of the body of Jesus Christ. In order to function as one body, we need opportunities to fellowship and communicate with other believers.
I know that whenever you get a group of people together there will be disagreements and differences in personalities. However, we are called together in the name of Jesus, so we need to move beyond our differences in order to focus on the one true message of God. If any one of us begins to stray from God's message, we need to be able to lovingly help each other regain our focus.
Church is not about a building, but it is about building a united body of believers for Christ. When we combine as one body we can capitalize on individual strengths and compensate for individual weaknesses to further God's kingdom as one body. Prepare yourself to serve God...and don't forget church as part of the process!
Thank You for giving me a body of other believers. Please allow us to fellowship and work together to further Your kingdom and spread Your message. In Jesus' name I pray, Amen.
