Only God’s Family Will Last
By Rick Warren
“To God be the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus for all time, forever and ever! Amen.” Ephesians 3:21 (GNT)
For the last few days, we’ve looked at how you can glorify God. One of the greatest ways you can show God’s glory is by joining God’s family, the church.
Did you know that God’s family is the only thing that’s going to last for eternity? A thousand years from today, if the Earth is still here, there won’t be a Microsoft. There won’t be a Hollywood. There won’t be any of the things we’re used to today. In fact, the Bible promises that even heaven and Earth as we know them today won’t last forever; one day there will be a new heaven and new Earth.
But there will still be the family of God. When everything else is gone, God’s church will remain.
If God’s family is the only thing that will last forever, don’t you want to join it? Being part of God’s family, the church, has all kinds of benefits. A local church will love you and help you grow in biblical truth and knowledge. It’s a place where you can share your talents, and benefit from the abilities of others.
Joining a spiritual family will be one of the most significant things you do with your life. The church is making a difference in the world that is going to outlast your career, your hobbies, and every other thing you do.
What are you waiting for? Find your spiritual family and join a local church today.
