When we hear the word membership, we immediately think of a club. A member pays dues, comes to meetings, and fulfils obligations. When you move, or no longer have time for the club, you simply withdraw your membership and move on. The Bible says membership is much more intimate. To be a church member means we are a member of Christ’s body…just like your finger is a member of your body. His blood runs through us. His Spirit animates us. His will moves us. He feels our pain, cleanses us when we get dirty, and nurses our wounds.
Whether you love your church, are frustrated with your church, or don’t understand why church membership matters, this series will help us rediscover the privilege and joy of belonging to God’s body, and encourage us to make a renewed commitment to our church that makes a difference in our lives and those around us.
