If you only had one thing that you would recommend to a person looking for a church, what would that one thing be? Would it be a loving atmosphere? Would it be a caring and attentive pastoral team? Would you push them to a church that had a great “worship experience?” Do you encourage them to settle down in a church with a strong children’s ministry or a vibrant student ministry?
For the record, I wouldn’t put any of those qualities to the top of my list. Why? Did you happen to notice that each of these items relate to a self-oriented consumer mentality? None of the items mentioned are bad in-and-of themselves, it is just that none of them have been chosen by God to be a central means of providing the grace necessary to live life to its fullest. Today we will find out what that “one thing” is and how it is empowered by God to change you. MP3 download.
