Dedicated to: All servicemen and families
Posted by: Joyce Clasen in La Palma, CA
Prayer: It is important to belong. Your sense of belonging gives you confidence, security and peace. Just as growing up in a loving family helps you to mature, so being a part of a loving church helps you to grow spiritually. You need your family and your family is not complete without you. God gives you a church where you are so that you receive nurture, encouragement, accountability, love and service. Every member is important and all serve one another. Rick Warren states in his book, The Purpose Driven Life, "Following God includes belonging, not just believing." Christ loves the church. The church is your spiritual family. Serve the church joyfully, bloom where you are planted. Thank God for the church family He has given you. Joyfully, Joyce
