Help Me Be a Blessing to My Church
1 Peter 2:5 Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ.
Christians often testify of how the church has been a blessing to their lives. We receive the ministry of the word that gives instruction for living at church. We worship God and fellowship with other believers at church.   We turn to our church family in time of crisis and in time of bereavement for strength. We learn how to live a victorious Christian life at church. Broken lives are restored through the church. The church is also a place of spiritual covering for the Christian. Having received so much from the church, every believer ought to seek to be a blessing to his or her church. Purpose to be a blessing to your church. Here are some ways you can bless your church:
A. Pray for your church.
B. Give a good report of your church.
C. Consistently invite guest to worship at your church.
D. Serve faithfully in your church and encourage others to do likewise.
E. Support your church with tithes and offerings.
F. Be an encouragement to the pastor and leadership of your church.
G. Faithfully attend the services of your church.
Sample Prayer: Father, I thank you for my church. I appreciate the teaching and instruction in righteousness that I've received in church. Thank you for the ways you have used the messages to bring guidance to my life. Thanks for the Christian fellowship I found through church. Lord, I appreciate all those that are faithfully serving in the church. Thanks for a pastor that feeds me with knowledge and understanding. Help me Father to be a better church member. Help me to be a blessing to my church. In Jesus Name, Amen.
