CHURCH IS ESSENTIAL
By Pastor Mike 


Our calling is to nurture; not to: coddle, or compromise, to save relationships over the true confession of sin. 
We are in this local place to nurture and care for the body as it grows in grace.
 

How? 

1. Love One Another……John 13:34 “A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another.”  


2. Be Devoted To One Another…….Rom 12:5 “so we, though many, are one body in Christ, and individually members one of another.”  


3. Serve One Another……Gal 6:2 “Bear one another's burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.” What is the Law of Christ? “A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another. By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another." John 13:34-35


4. Embodying Kindness & Forgivenss To One Another………Eph 4:32 “Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you.”  

5. Encourage One Another……..1 Thess 5:11 “Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing.”  


6. Offer Hospitality To One Another……….1 Peter 4:9 “Show hospitality to one another without grumbling.”  


7. Be Accountable & Pray For One Another…….James 5:16 “Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working. 


The ministry to “one another’s” is commands, they are not suggestions. This should be at the very heart of every born again child of God. Being in this place is not about…. programs, or having your felt needs met, or getting what you want out of the church. But! Sharing life together as brother and sisters, young and old, for His glory and the edification of this local body of Christ, His church. 

"The church is essential because the church is an institution
that is established for the glory of God"

The Sweet Designs of God
By John Piper

He set me apart before I was born, and called me by his grace. (Galatians 1:15)

Ponder the conversion of Paul, the sovereignty of Christ, and what Paul’s sins have to do with your salvation.

Paul said that God “set me apart before I was born,” and then, years later, on the Damascus road, “called me by his grace” (Galatians 1:15). This means that between Paul’s birth and his call on the Damascus road he was an already-chosen, but not-yet-called, instrument of God (Acts 9:15; 22:14).

This means that Paul was beating and imprisoning and murdering Christians as a God-chosen, soon-to-be-made-Christian missionary.

As I was on my way and drew near to Damascus, about noon a great light from heaven suddenly shone around me. And I fell to the ground and heard a voice saying to me, “Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting me?” (Acts 22:6–7)

There was no denying or escaping it. God had chosen him for this before he was born. And now he would take him. The word of Christ was sovereign. There was no negotiating.

Rise, and go into Damascus, and there you will be told all that is appointed for you to do. (Acts 22:10)

Damascus was not Paul’s final, free will yielding to Christ after decades of futile divine effort to save him. No. God had a time for choosing him (before he was born) and a time for calling him (on the Damascus road). God called, and the call produced the yielding.

Therefore, the sins that God permitted between Paul’s birth and his calling were part of the plan, since God could have called him sooner.

Do we have any idea what the plan for those sins might have been? Yes, we do. They were permitted for you and me — for all who fear that they might have sinned themselves out of grace. Here’s the way Paul relates his sins to your hope:

Formerly I was a blasphemer, persecutor, and insolent opponent. . . . But I received mercy for this reason, that in me, as the foremost, Jesus Christ might display his perfect patience as an example to those who were to believe in him for eternal life. (1 Timothy 1:13, 16)

Oh, how sweet are the designs of God in the sovereign salvation of hardened, hopeless sinners!
