I Am A Church Member-A Gift Of Love To Be Treasured-Part 3
May 25, 2015
My friend, the reason you should treasure church membership is because that means you are in the body of Christ. You once were a child of Satan and now you are a child of God. Another reason is you once had a home in hell and now you have a home in heaven. Aren’t you glad that you’re not wondering where you are going to spend eternity? My friend, because you are in Christ, because you are in His church, you have a home in heaven. Ephesians 2:6-7 “and raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus,” Why? “so that in the ages to come He might show the exceeding riches of His grace in His kindness toward us in Christ Jesus.”
For all eternity that never ends, God is setting us up. We are trophies of His grace, for all eternity. This is why we should be excited, thankful, and grateful, because we are in the body of Christ and we are in the local church. We can have brothers and sisters in our physical family, and if they die without Christ it is no more for them, but if you are a child of God in Christ, with other brothers and sisters in Christ, they are going to be with you for all eternity and they can never be separated from you or God. We are to be about sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ with our families and our friends before it is too late.
