Commit to Your Church

There’s an article that’s been going around on my Facebook for the past week titled ‘5 Really Bad Reasons to Leave Your Church.‘ This is something I’ve addressed pretty regularly on here, and have had many frustrations with as I’ve begun serving in a church. As I’ve also said before, and is said in the article, most of the time when people leave a church it’s because of a very selfish motivation. I got to preach just a couple weeks ago on church membership, and asked the question: Why aren’t people more committed to the church? Why can it be so difficult to find people to help out in some areas (music, nursery, coffee, greeting, painting, etc)?

Hebrews 10:25 is one of the most often quoted verses when addressing the issue of church “not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some.” That’s generally where we stop. But if you continue on, it says, “but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.” Church isn’t about us, church is about God. Be willing to commit to your church to work through the thick and thin in order to better represent Christ to a dead and broken world. After all, as soon as you find the perfect church, it’s no longer perfect because you’re there.
