The Bible says, “Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her.” (Eph 5:25) Jesus loved the church so much He paid the ultimate price for her, His life. Understand, this is God laying down His life for the church. This is God dying for the church. This is the Creator sacrificing Himself so that you and I could become part of His church and ultimately spend all of eternity with him. Is there any doubt in your mind how much Jesus loves the church?
So how about you? Do you love the church? Do you love your church? I’m talking about the church you call “your church.” I mean your church “home?” Do you love it? How much do you love it? Even more so why do you love it?
I love the church because it provides an avenue for me to show Christ to the community. It gives me a place to invite my friends and neighbors so that they might have a chance to connect with Jesus also. It helps me grow to all God wants me to be. It is a place of strength when I am weak and encouragement when I am down. I could keep on and on but I would rather hear from you.
Whoever you are, whatever church you are a part of sound off. Why do you love your church? Come on, shout it out. Tell it to everyone, or at least to the few who read this blog. Don’t hold back. Why do you love your church? Hit “comment’ and let err rip.
