I love how the Lord puts things into perspective for us. Today Chris had left a comment about CCC where he found Hebrews 13:17 at the end of CCC's faith statement. There it said:
"d. Every believer in Christ must be subject to God’s authority in a specific local church for spiritual protection and long term fruitfulness."
In the NKJV it reads:
"17Obey your leaders and submit tothem, for they keep watch over your souls as those who will give an account, so that they can do this with joy and not with grief, for that would be unprofitable for you."
Our Pastor talks on this very subject often, and it all makes sense. All too often we tend to falter on this very message. But God's faithfulness always seems to pull us through and wake us up. Okay, that's not quite worded right, but hopefully you all get the jest of what I'm trying to say.
Simply Put, God is Awesome in All Things!
