And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.

--Hebrews 10:24-25

Do you have a church family?

You know, as a pastor I often hear people say, “I’m a Christian, but I don’t really need to go to church.” Unfortunately, this attitude is contrary to God’s will!

As we learn in today’s verse, other believers need you… and you need them.

The fact is that life can be discouraging. Work can be stressful… home life can be draining… and sometimes we may feel like we’re the only ones trying to live godly lives! But you and I are not alone! 

God has given us His people… called His church… to strengthen our faith, grow our families, and encourage one another. In fact, when you become a believer in the Lord Jesus Christ, you’re actually called to faithfully and regularly fellowship with other believers.

The Bible describes the church as the Body of Christ. As followers of Jesus, you and I are a part of His body on this earth. We’re not in a civic club or a country club. We’re part of a unique, living community of faith.

So, let me ask you again, are you a part of His church? Do you fellowship with a local community of believers? In the words of the writer of Hebrews, are you “stirring one another to love and good works” and “encouraging one another”?

If not, I want to urge you to find a local church that you can be a part of today. It’s my prayer that you’ll discover a thriving, Bible-believing, Jesus-proclaiming church where you can build your faith and you can inspire faith in others!

IF YOU DON’T HAVE ONE ALREADY, BEGIN LOOKING FOR A CHURCH FAMILY TODAY. BECAUSE OTHER BELIEVERS NEED YOU… AND YOU NEED THEM!
