What does it mean?

8 Oct

A question:  What does it really mean to be a member of Ebenezer Baptist Church??  To be a member of ANY church, for that matter??  Should it mean something?

I think so.  It means so much more than merely having a name on a church roll and a sense of pseudo-security.  Church membership is a commitment to God AND to a family of faith.  I’ll talk more about that from the pulpit this coming Sunday.  But, rest assured it SHOULD mean something.  At Ebenezer, our church fathers developed a membership covenant in 1823.  And, honestly, we have strayed.  Sometimes I wonder if it is time for us to REBOOT!!

Hope you have a great week and praying that we all (not only Ebenezerites) can BE THE BODY OF CHRIST THIS WEEK!!!
