Church is the Pit Stop of Life, Part 2

Matthew 25:35-40
As we discussed in our last devotion, church is a recharging place much like a pit stop at an auto race. Sometimes the cars go into the pit stop not just for recharging but because there is an engine problem. Do we as a church sometimes slack in this area?  When people come to us in need of repair because of brokenness, addiction, pain, and sorrow, do we embrace them, do we encourage them, and do we meet them where they are? Or do we ignore them and let them alone to fend for themselves because we just don’t want to get involved? We are to get involved, to help, and to guide and support the broken, the poor and the disenfranchised. We are the church of Christ and He did all of that and so much more for us. He fixed our broken engine when He died on the cross. Please church, let us be the hands and feet of Christ and continue to do the good works of Christ and transform the world. Let us help others to get back into the race and finish strong. God loves Ya;)

    great message, as one being part of the prayer team Sunday mornings, while standing in my assigned corner, I notice alot of people that are hurting and struggling for one reason or another, some do come back for prayer but, my concern are for the one’s that don’t approach, whether it’s out of being ashamed or embarrassed or for whatever reason, How do we reach out to those people? I guess keep sending out the message that we as a church do care, and we are here for one another in Christ love and let us remind ourselves and each other that we all have a story and that none of us are perfect and never will be. I pray that all our hearts and minds stay open and that God gives us the opportunities to help whoever and whenever we can either inside or ouside our church walls! in God’s Love, Lori
