Imagine what your community or even the world would look like if people allow God’s words be alive in them. Imagine what your life would be like if you allowed God’s words to be alive in you.
There are a lot of misconceptions about God and the Church which keeps people from allowing God’s words to be alive in them. First I want to say the Church is NOT a building. The Church is the people not the building. Church are a group of people who come together to worship God and encourage and love each other. The people of the Church are not perfect. They make mistakes just like everyone else. The Church is made up of broken and lost people, (sinners), learning to live a life for God instead of for self.
There are other misconceptions/ false assumptions about God that hinder people. One is that God is waiting for you to mess up. That He is a judging God. Waiting to pass judgement on everyone he can. That God is waiting with lightning bolts ready to strike all who mess up/sin. That is so far from the truth. God gave His son Jesus for us so we don’t have to be judged instead so we can be forgiven. See Jesus did not come to condemn the world but to save it. John 3:17
Another Misconception is that all God wants us to do is go to church. That is not all God wants us to do. God wants to spend time with you. He wants to be your friend. God wants to have a relationship with you. Yes going to a church is important in helping you build your relationship with Him. But he wants to spend more time with you than 1 hour a week at a church service. God wants you to spend time everyday with Him.
These are just a few misconceptions out there that keep people from getting to know God and be a part of a church fellowship. Don’t let misconceptions keep you from experiencing the love and salvation from God, who loves you dearly.
God bless and come join us as we learn and grow in our Lord God
