You’ve heard the saying, “firing on all cylinders” referring to a car with all its parts running perfectly. An engine might get by running without one of its cylinders for a while. But would you want to be riding in a car without all of it parts committed and running as intended? It might not get you to your desired destination!
We see membership in much the same manner. As a member, you are committed to the engine of the church—seeking ways to serve, committing to Christ’s call, utilizing your talents, and giving of what God has so graciously given you to fulfill His mission. Simply showing up isn’t enough—we are called to invest ourselves as an active part of the community of faith.
In the book of Acts (2:42) we see this, “They were continually devoting themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer.” This is a beautiful description of how WE as the church are to live out our devotion and commitment to Jesus Christ and to each other.
