After King Solomon, the Kingdom of Israel split in two. Both the northern kingdom of Israel and the southern kingdom of Judah faced their share of issues, but Judah was able to stay on track longer. Why is this? One of the key reasons was the proximity of the temple which was the dwelling place of God. Since the Temple was located in Judah, they were able to continue fellowship with the Lord through the sacrifices and daily duties of the priests. This helped Judah remain more focused on the Lord.
Do you realize the same is true for us? In order for us to persevere in difficult times and to grow in our faith. God has given us the church. The church is not a building, but a body of believers that has been ordained by God to encourage us, challenge us and change our lives for good. We are the Church! Can it be messy in a church? Sure it can. Can we struggle with loving our Christian brothers and sisters? Of course, but what better place to learn to love than with those we know love Jesus. Our surroundings will influence our lives. When we surround ourselves with the teachings of God, the love of Christians and the opportunities to serve, give and witness, we will grow stronger. On the contrary, if we refuse to commit to a church, we will miss out on God’s growth tool for our lives. It may not be easy, but it is worth it.
Heavenly Father, Thank You for the church. Thank You for brothers and sisters who love You and love me. Help me to commit to a fellowship with my whole heart so that I can experience spiritual growth and victory this year. Help us to walk in love and grace with one another so that the world will see our love and desire to know more about You. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
Please join us in prayer, As Scriptural Seeds Ministries starts our 4th year we have been blessed to grow to reach all over the world. It is very humbling to know how God has been able to use this little ministry that has not ever asked for any kind of donation nor has received any. In the last three years we have grown to a total reach of close to 70 countries with an average of 35,000 daily views. We are so proud to report over 3,000 people have clicked the “Accept Jesus” button after feeling led to read the salvation prayer.
Unfortunately many of these people live in areas where Christian Church’s are to far, too dangerous or not available. We also have a big reach with the new social media generation of young men and women that utilize the internet for streaming TV, Music and Videos. We ask that you would keep us in prayer that we are able to start a interactive streaming broadcast of worship and church service. as well as a bible class and discipleship program. We have the technology available to us and its just a matter of time and finances. A page will soon be available to see what is needed and to pray for our mighty God to provide what is needed for this service to be available
Thank you once again for continuing to tune in each day and share and like our post.
If you have been blessed by God and feel led to get involved by volunteering or even financially. Please contact me at 520-256-9738 or at firstname.lastname@example.org
