It is impossible to grow to spiritual maturity all by ourselves. That is why God set up His Church the way that He did. Rather than using the idea of a country club, where membership has its perks and privileges, God chose the analogy of a body. We have many parts that function differently but all work together in order to be healthy. Body parts that get disconnected from the body, not only die, but the severing weakens the rest of the body. Churches are weak whenever they have members who have turned the meaning of membership upside down. It’s time to get it right. In this series I Am a Church Member, based on a book by Thom Rainer, we will be looking at 5 aspects of what it means to be a healthy part of the body.
