so we, being many, are one body in Christ, and every one members one of another. Romans 12:5 For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ. 1 Corinthians 12:12 There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling; Ephesians 4:4 And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful. Colossians 3:15
As I sit at home listening to our newly found church family online, (they just don’t know it yet *wink*) the desire to actually be there in person, has never been stronger! He opened this morning in such an unusual manner. They had been praying about a very serious matter, whether or not to close the church doors forever! What a horrible choice to be faced with as a church family. What a horrible thing my family has done as a christian home. This family of God, that is right down the road, is thinking about closing its doors and my family, we have skills and talents and supplies that could help this struggling family of God. I wont allow myself to feel guilty for long because For godly sorrow worketh repentance to salvation not to be repented of: but the sorrow of the world worketh death. 2 Corinthians 7:10 If I allow myself to sit in my failure, I am sitting in my sin and that is the sorrow of the world. However, I am now committed to this little church family down the road.
I have been looking for a church family for a very long time. A small close knit godly, Bible preaching family that fears the Lord and loves one another. When my husband and I first moved to our little patch of heaven, I saw the church as we drove past. It’s a humble little church with a lot of available! There is a play yard for the kids to run off the energy that built up over the course of the sermon. I was drawn to it immediately. God has shown me through the sermon today I told my husband we should check it out since it was so close to the new house but we never did go. Today is the last day that we will be attending church at home. I have felt drawn to this church since the first time we drove past it. This family that goes to this little country church is I believe an answer to prayer! I am both blessed and humbled by the sermon that was given today. I can’t wait to see how God moves in both us and the church that we are about to make a part of our family!
