Fill in the blank: I’ve always wanted to be a part of a church that __________.
…accepts people with love?
…serves their neighbors with no strings attached?
…fosters deep friendships?
Whatever you came up with, how does God want to use you to make it a reality in 2014? Talk to our heavenly father about it. He loves to talk about his church. If you need some inspiration, just look to Ephesians 3:14-21:
For this reason I kneel before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth derives its name. I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.
