the Church back to Christ is So Essential
The key to
building your church so it will run right and for people to not only come but
be aligned with Christ as worshiping, growing members begins with your
obedience to His call. What is the purpose of the Church as He has clearly
called? It starts with this theme: obey me. Then, as this passage
continues to state, I will be your God and you will be my people.
are you and the leadership of your church responding to this? Are you obeying
Him? Are you responding as people that are His?
Gratitude is an attitude
of being thankful for what He has done for me! When we fully recognize that our
greatest problem has been solved, our indebtedness of sin, we can feel and know
gratitude and thus honor God, by leading a life of response to Who and what He
has done! Even when we do not see what we have. This is an aspect of worship,
expressing to God, and others, how they have benefited our lives by showing
them support, appreciation, and benevolence. Because His blood has redeemed us,
we are grateful.
