When you’re swimming in the ocean, it takes intentional effort to keep from drifting away. If you take your eyes off the shore, you’ll likely end up somewhere you never intended! And the same is true of our churches.
Loving One Another
Enthusiasm! Every church should overflow with enthusiasm as it fulfils Christ’s mission. Chuck Swindoll certainly is enthusiastic about the church, and in this two-part series, he lights a torch and sets our hearts ablaze with an eagerness to truly love one another.
The first message explores the central question, “What do we do as members of Christ’s church?” The answer: use our gifts. The second message addresses the “how” question. How are we to carry out our gifts? By living in harmony despite our differences.
Don’t let your church involvement sink into a lifeless, predictable, and passionless routine. And don’t settle for a mentality of divisiveness between groups. Instead, grasp the exciting vision of the church as Christ intended! No other institution on earth is as appealing and inspiring as a church where members express their God-given gifts and opens their hearts with Christ’s love.
Let Chuck’s enthusiasm for the church spark a fire in you!
What makes a church different than a lecture hall? Chuck Swindoll addresses that question in this message.
