10 Questions to Explore and Understand a Church

I thought this was very interesting, ecspecially number 9 and thought I would share with everyone else.

1. Is this church where God’s Word is faithfully taught? (2 Tim. 3:16)

2. Is this a church where sound doctrine matters? (Acts 2:42; 2 Tim 4:3-4)

3. Is this a church in which the gospel is cherished and clearly proclaimed?

4. Is this a church committed to reaching non-Christians with the gospel? (Matt. 28:18-20)

5. Is this a church whose leaders are characterized by humility and integrity? (1 Tim. 3)

6. Is this a church where people strive to live by God’s Word? (James 1:22)

7. Is this a church where I can find and cultivate godly relationships?

8. Is this a church where members are challenged to serve? (Eph. 4:12)

9. Is this a church that is willing to kick me out? (1 Cor. 5; 2 Cor. 2)

10. Is this a church I’m willing to join “as is” with enthusiasm and faith in God?

This site also has a lot of other interesting articles, devotions, etc.

What Are You Burying?

There has been this dream at my church for years about building a gym. This dream is way over due, but how can we expect God to give us more when we don't use what He has given us to the fullest.

I am reminded of a parable in Matthew 25 where three servants are given talents one was given five, another two and yet another one. The one given five used them and doubled what he was given. The servant that was given two also used what was given him, but the servant who was given one buried his and came back with what he was given originally. Yes he came back with what his lord gave him but he never used what was given to him in the first place.

In the chapter it tells how God gave much to the first two servants to rule over because they used what He gave them. The other servant He took his talent from him because he did not use it.

So, I think we need to think of what God has given to us and use that talent or resource so He can do what He needs done. We are a body and that means everyone needs to pitch in there is something for everyone to do, you just need to step up.
I get so frustrated when people say oh that program or event would work, but expect someone else to do it and then they sit back and don't help or don't do it themselves.

I also dream of a church gym but how do we as a church expect God to give us more to work with when we as a church is not using what we have already. This is also true to the church as a whole, in that I mean the church body as God sees it. You don't have to have but one talent to do something great for God; He proves that to us all the time through other people around us. We just have to be willing to not bury what God has blessed us with to further His kingdom.

I have one question for you, do you want to hear the words that the first two servants heard "Well done, thou good and faithful servant thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things" or what the last servant heard "Thou wicked and slothful servant"?

Matthew 25:29 says "For unto every one that hath shall be given, and he shall have abundance: but from him that hath not shall be taken away even that which he hath."

So I pray that as a church we use what talents God has given us to the fullest so He can bless us with more for His glory.

Honestly this is the first time I really want to see the Superbowl.
Not necessarily to watch the game put to watch an ad that
will air during the game.
The ads theme is "Celebrate Family, Celebrate Life".
This ad will have the Heisman Trophy winning college star Tim Tebow and his mom and focuses on Mrs. Tebow's pregnancy with Tim when doctors encouraged her to abort her son while she and her husband were missionaries in Philippines. So tune in February 7th on CBS at 6:00p.m. ET.

For more info on this please check out this link

The Bible passage he wears painted under his eyes is
Ephesians 2:8-10

For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.
