Prayer: Praise God for the church for Christians in every location. God intends for you to be connected. He wants you to work through the church. You add an important dimension to the local body of believers. It is your umbrella of protection. The church IS the body of Christ. We need to honor and cherish the body of believers as much as Christ does. Like any individual, each church will have its strengths and weaknesses. Your purpose is to edify, to encourage focus on God, to serve gladly, joyfully and sacrificially. The instructions for the church written in Colossians 3:12-16: Therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, put on tender mercies, kindness, humility, meekness, longsuffering, bearing with one another...But above all these things put on love which is the bond of perfection. And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to which you also were called in one body; and be thankful. Joyfully, Joyce
