1. If you go to church you are going to be amazingly blessed by church people.
2. If you go to church you are also going to be deeply hurt by church people.
3. Sometimes the people who bless you are the same people who will hurt you.
4. Sometimes you will be both the one who blessed and the one who hurt.
Don’t doubt that God will work through imperfect church people. Jesus died for the church. Jesus loves the church–she is His bride.. The local church is the hope of the world… Don’t doubt it.
I want to be faithful to Jesus’ church. It’s the least I can do after all He has done for me.
