Love of a Church Family
I am blessed with an awesome church family! Our church has a spirit of love and concern for each other that is probably not found in most other churches. Many times I have heard our church members checking up on each others’ prayer requests or situations recently experienced. I believe our church members genuinely care for each other and would go out of their way to help each other. In fact, they often do just that! There are many men in our church who have talents such as electrician, mechanic, plumber, etc., that they use to help others in need. Our family has experienced that help many times!
My question about love is this: do we exhibit that same love and concern for all, or just our close friends? Do we check on the teens whom we know are going through a tough time? Do we reach out and show Christ’s love to those who come only on Sunday mornings? Do we pray about the prayer requests that are mentioned during prayer meetings? Do we smile and forgive when we are offended?
Love is not just an outward show of affection, nor is it just the act of serving others through gifts or using of talents. It is an everyday exhibition of the love of Christ to everyone we meet. Keep your church family close by loving all of them.
