I Am A Church Member-A Gift Of Love To Be Treasured-Part 5

May 27, 2015


Being here and being in your local church is a gift and we should see it this way. If you have to get up and drag yourself to church something is wrong. My friend, the reason you may be this way is that you are still dead in your trespasses and sins.  How can we be so haphazard, uncaring, and standoffish when it comes to God? Is it because we have yet to be truly saved and our father is Satan the father of lies?

When you are a child of God and He lives in you He does something to you, and when you spend time in the Word it is because you love Him and because you see it as God’s love letter to you. My friend, His Holy Spirit does something within you, even if intellectually you are not the brightest person. The Spirit of God will do something to you that no teacher can do. He will put something in you that you can’t explain apart from the real work of the Holy Spirit of God, and you will be a blessing to others and to your local church.
