“Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it.”
1 Corinthians 12:27
It can be easy at times to point out the flaws in our church or ministry group.
It’s not too difficult to realize something is broken.
Attend a single church for long enough, be a part of a small group or college ministry, and you’re bound to find areas that need improvement.
Worship isn’t as passionate as it could be.
The discussions aren’t as lively.
The preaching isn’t as powerful.
The community isn’t as welcoming.
Offering could be done differently.
Followup with new believers could be better.
Inviting others to come could be built up more.
Prayer isn’t as powerful, outreach not working, and the giving - the giving is never where it could be.
All of us could easily point out something we’d like to see changed.
But most of us don’t want to do anything about it.
