If so we must commit fully to His Cause and His Church. Oddly, some people just sit in the shade of the Church and refuse to put down any roots. Some folks like the benefits, but resist true commitment to Jesus and His Body.
Some love the Church perks, a/c-heat, free parking, powerful sermons, lovely music, and places for the kids to learn and enjoy. So they date her, visit her, but never put the ring on! Commit to the Church? Nope, can’t do that.
Miss the Church in salvation, baptism and local membership and you miss what God has best for you. For the Church is the best place to do what you can do for Him! Let Him prosper You!
