Thank God for Your Church
Church provides encouragement, corporate worship, and the opportunity to connect with others who share our beliefs. How blessed we are to be able to assemble together in His name.
Thank God for allowing you the freedom to worship together with other believers, to gather together in His name. Pray that He would continue to bless your pastor and staff with integrity and wisdom and guide them as they lead His church to further the cause of Christ.
1 Corinthians 14:26
6 What then shall we say, brothers and sisters? When you come together, each of you has a hymn, or a word of instruction, a revelation, a tongue or an interpretation. Everything must be done so that the church may be built up.
5 The reason I left you in Crete was that you might put in order what was left unfinished and appoint elders in every town, as I directed you. 6 An elder must be blameless, faithful to his wife, a man whose children believe and are not open to the charge of being wild and disobedient.7 Since an overseer manages God’s household, he must be blameless—not overbearing, not quick-tempered, not given to drunkenness, not violent, not pursuing dishonest gain. 8 Rather, he must be hospitable, one who loves what is good, who is self-controlled, upright, holy and disciplined. 9 He must hold firmly to the trustworthy message as it has been taught, so that he can encourage others by sound doctrine and refute those who oppose it.
25 not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.
