The local church has been around for a long time. If you’ve ever attended one for a long time, you realize that there are usually certain traits that make it different than other churches. But if we go back to the earliest know church, we will see a model that should be duplicated! If the Biblical example is followed, we find a church that is healthy; we find a family we can be thankful for.
As we enter the Thanksgiving season, we will undoubtedly see social media posts about all the things people are thankful for. While there’s nothing wrong with that, wouldn’t it be great to dig deeper than most of the superficial things we see on those lists? Let’s learn to be thankful for who God says we are, who God says He is, and the fact that we get to do life in a local family of Believers – the church.
