– alone, we are a member of the body, rather helpless – together as a local church, we are the body of Christ. Romans 12:3-5
We are greater together than we are alone. Alone, we are just a lamp that burns and gives light. Together on the Lampstand of the local church we are a great beacon of light to the world.
The world’s music has no place among God’s people. When we come together, we sing Psalms, hymns and spiritual songs.
Let us remember that we are greater together than alone. Jesus takes us and join us to a body/lampstand/temple. Together, we make an impact!
Many believers are “giving up” regular church attendance. They think TV, youtube, etc replaces church. Sorry, that is a bad habit we are not to have. We are commanded to not give up being a part of a local church and being there every week.
We hold firmly to hope – a confidence of future good (Ie. optimistic attitude) because the God who made the promises to us is Faithful.
