It’s a poor church that cares only for what happens to a soul after it leaves this life. — Alan Brennert, Moloka’i
If we were to take a DNA sample of the Church, what sort of building blocks would we find? Is there a common genetic code that should comprise all churches – no matter their denomination or affiliation? Hebrews 13 seems to answer this latter question with a resounding “Yes!”
So this week we’re creating a Top 10 list of what we, the Church, are all about. It continues…
#5. We, the Church, are grateful.
Through Jesus, therefore, let us continually offer to God a sacrifice of praise… (13:15)
#4. We, the Church, share our stuff.
#3. We follow our leaders.
We’re cranking through our Top 10 list: We love people. We honor marriage. We reject consumerism. We stand confidently. We follow grace. We express our gratitude. We share. And we trust our leaders.
Two more are left in our Top 10.
Lord, thank You for this guide. As I read through it, Your Spirit is unlocking new ways for me to live in faith through You. I am struck by the “something next” You want to do through me, but also by what You’ve already done. Thank You for this divine way of living and loving. Amen.
