Family of Faith

What a great blessing to lead a church that loves each other. That is not to say that as a church family that we never have differences. All families have a little tension from time to time, it is normal. It is natural. It is hard at times to understand some of the things that sidetrack us, but the truth is, as long as we are in the flesh we will have relational hiccups.

I believe that a trait of a healthy church is learning to go forward even when relationships get off track a little or off balance. When we realize that we are all different in some way, it helps us appreciate even the differences that we have.

While there may be personality differences, there is a common thread that binds us together. It is the thread of what the Lord Jesus Christ had done for us. The Holy Spirit in the life of a believer. It is greater and more powerful than anything the devil can throw at you and is strong enough to heal even the most fractured relationship.

What a blessing to be part of wonderful family of faith. I love my church family.

See you Sunday.
