Making A Difference As A Church

When the people in Jerusalem said, “We will not neglect the house of our God,” they committed to observe the sacrifices and offerings required by God’s law. They acknowledged they were regaining a special bond that had been lost. In that declaration, they renewed their commitment to obey God. In Christ, we are all part of the house of God. 1 Peter 2:5 says, “You also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house…” The church is not a building. The church is made up of people (Acts 7:48).

When our heart has been truly changed, every area of our lives is affected.

When we say, “We will not neglect the house of God,” it’s an acknowledgement that God has filled our hearts, and our behavior should reflect His love. Living for Jesus is more than showing up to church every week or giving money. When our heart has been truly changed, every area of our lives is affected. And sometimes, like Israel, we need to be reminded of our commitment.

Something special happens when we commit to advancing the church together. The church is made up of individuals changed by Jesus, filled with the Holy Spirit, making a difference. There is synergy as we pull together with common purpose. We are unstoppable because God is unstoppable in us. Together, we can make a difference in our neighborhoods, cities, and state.

Daily Meditation:

What kind of commitment have you made to the church? Do you need to recommit?

Prayer:

Father, help me not to forget my commitment to you and to the local church. Light a passion to serve and to honor you in my call to the body of Christ.
