➵ i love my church and i love my pastor. i also love the people there. i am one that thoroughly enjoys and looks forward to going to church. when you go to a church you really love and where the people there feel like family (which they should) then isn't this how we should all feel? as christians, they are our family for they are our brothers and sisters in christ jesus as well as christians in other churches throughout the world. the lord takes great pride in his church and rightfully so. the "church" is the bride of christ. we are supposed to shine so brightly with a purity and holiness just as he who called us is holy. the lord tells us to "encourage one another and build one another up." (1 thessalonians 5:11) he also tells us, "do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen." (ephesians 4:29) there isn’t a “perfect church" because the church is filled with imperfect people.
let's be "the church" that is complementary, not critical; prayer warriors, not gossipers; encouragers, not discouragers, builders, not destroyers and fruit bearers, not withered vines. as christians, jesus calls us to be like him since we have his seed, his divine nature within us, so we should no longer be walking in the flesh, but rather, in the spirit. we should be acting, talking, and looking more like him each day. we need to pray faithfully for our church, the pastors and the leaders. "respect those who labor among you and are over you in the lord and admonish you, and to esteem them very highly in love because of their work. be at peace among yourselves." (1 thessalonians 5:3) esteem means to respect, admire, value, appreciate, honor, reverence, and treasure. pastors have a great weight upon their shoulders as shepherds of his flock. let's cheer, build, and root them on so they might soar to greater heights preaching and teaching the word of god, raising jesus up that all may be drawn to him!! let's be the body of christ that the lord calls us to be so that we may bring him great glory and show this world that we are his by the way we love one another. ➵ 👑
