When some people join a church, they become lifelong, active members. Others, however, start out excited but fall away over time. And still others never get involved, somehow content to sit on the sidelines.
In this message, Dr. Stanley talks about the reasons we fail to recognize Jesus’ leadership in the church and lose interest in serving Him from within a local body of believers. He also dispels the myth that salvation is automatically obtained through church membership.
A congregation is not a club or civic organization; it is the body of Christ at work on this earth. Failing to fulfill one’s role in His Church is always contrary to God’s will and displeases Him. Are you where the Lord wants you to be?
