Never Settle in Life
The Dangers of the Last Days
3 You should know this, Timothy, that in the last days there will be very difficult times. 2 For people will love only themselves and their money. They will be boastful and proud, scoffing at God, disobedient to their parents, and ungrateful. They will consider nothing sacred. 3 They will be unloving and unforgiving; they will slander others and have no self-control. They will be cruel and hate what is good. 4 They will betray their friends, be reckless, be puffed up with pride, and love pleasure rather than God. 5 They will act religious, but they will reject the power that could make them godly. Stay away from people like that! 2 Timothy 3:1-5
This is really speaking to me this morning as my family is making a real personal transition from a church home in search of one that better fits our family n each of our values and need to grow spiritually. The church we went to last sunday the speaker was wearing shorts above his knees and nobody lifted their hands to praise God, the Pastor's wife was wearing a less than modest dress, but her toenails were painted and so were all the other woman. I wasn't impressed.
This sunday we couldn't even stay due to the lack of nursery workers our children didn't approve of the childrens facilities we have a 2 and almost 4 year old with no toys insight and no nursery worker it was less than accommodating. So now my husbands determined to find one by leaving us home to go to another church one was all i could handle with my precious boys.
With this I encourage you do not settle for a church that is less than best for your families needs. For us their must be discipleship for young adults, woman's n men's bible studies with child care, the holy spirit present in praise n worship, churchwide involvement in community outreach, welcoming to new members who are new to the faith and giving to the needy that our not members of the church. these are all biblical principles and modest attire by men and woman, with leadership that we can respect and learn from and an interest by the members to fellowship outside of church hours, hospitality is very biblical and is necessary within the body of Christ.
