What’s Important?

Our church recently celebrated our ten year anniversary.  It was a marvelous opportunity to give praise to God for His faithfulness to us over the years.

For our celebration service, I invited several families who had been at the church since its beginning to give a testimony during the service.  One theme in these testimonies came through to me: the church had served them in their time of need. Whether it was a surgery or a child who was rebelling, the fact that the church stood behind the family and helped them in their distress made a bit impact upon these families.

These testimonies help bring to clarity one of the most important things that people need in a church.  They need  a community to care for them in their time of need.  This care is a testimony to the watching world.  “By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another” (John 13:35).
