The church is that place of community with other believers. That’s the number one reason you need to be engaged with others in the faith. Within the church, there’s all kinds of people that help you grow, develop, and also there are people that need your contribution to their growth and development. The church, in scripture tells us, is made up with a diversity of people, different stories, but our common unity is around our faith, our belief.
God puts us in different places, different arenas of influence, but ultimately, our unifying factor is that we’re really all on a mission to represent him in the places that God has put us.
You need to be a part of the church because your giftedness matters. We all bring different gifts to the table, and the church needs your gifts. Scripture talks about the diversity of the body. It talks about the head, the toes, we’re all different, but we all have a role to play. You have a role to play in the church.
As a leader you need to be discipling others. I do think in the organizations you lead, you need to be developing others, but in the church, you need to be disciplining others in the faith.
