Church Goes Far Beyond a Message
And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works: not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching. (Hebrews 10:24–25)
Every time you come to church, remember that you aren’t there solely to listen to the message from the pulpit. When we assemble as a church body, every member brings an element that is needed by somebody else.
The moment you walk in the church door, look around at the people you see. Say, “Lord, show me somebody who I can encourage or help in some way over this challenge they’re facing. Show me, Lord, who to talk to today.”
Believe that every hand you shake, every smile you give, and every word you speak will impact another person. God will use you to extend His love to others, and you’ll come out of that place realizing God has been loving on you throughout the whole service. You’ll be pumped up, ready for another week.
