We’ve talked about the many ways God uses the community of believers to mold, shape, and teach us – this Sunday we talk about how God uses the church to build genuine happiness and satisfaction into our lives.
As I’ve studied this, I have found it is an overlooked aspect of the ministry of the church. This one could really open our eyes to see how instrumental the church can be to build happiness in our lives.
We start a new sermon series this Sunday called, WHY THE CHURCH MATTERS. Over the coming weeks we will cover many reasons why the church matters and how God has designed it to serve many powerful purposes in the world. Sunday, we start with a simple truth, the church matters because God leads us through a soul shaping journey from our first awkward visit to our local church, to our last breath on earth. He uses the dynamic of community in the body of Christ to impart real life change that goes far beyond simple knowledge.
There is something supernatural that happens when people walk together, live and work together, some stumbling, others breaking their fall, all in plain sight for the world to see that God has created a very unusual people.
