Ephesians 1:15-16New International Version (NIV)
Thanksgiving and Prayer
15 For this reason, ever since I heard about your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for all God’s people, 16 I have not stopped giving thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers.
We often see at this time of year, “Love My Church”. I think the local church has great opportunities for us as men to get plugged in and be involved. There are opportunities for relationship, commitment, and banding together as brothers.
My thoughts for us today are, “What can I do in being engaged in church?”
First, what is your commitment? I believe men who love their church get their families there. We help our wives with the kids. By doing this we are showing love for her and telling our children that church is important.
Second, invite over men to church. This is important, guys. Shoulder tapping with the ask brings men. By doing so, it tells that man you care for his life. You want the best for him and for what God has for his life.
Third, be involved. Nothing shows a man’s heart when he shows us he is involved. You can get involved in a church event by setting up tables and chairs. You can barbecue at a picnic event. Invest in friendship whiles getting involved.
Fourth and finally, love Jesus. When you love Jesus, you want to know more about him. You will be attentive in church. You will listen to what the Pastor says, and it will bring transformation to your life. It will encourage others.
Men, I do love my church because Jesus is coming after her some day. We need to be a church that waits with expectancy of Christ’s return. There lies the power of the church. The church is his bride.
