There are times when putting the Body of Christ first means putting our comfort and convenience last. There are times when moving forward means letting go of some things. There are times, when making room for resurrection, that some things have to die in order for new things to sprout up in their place.
Let us give joyfully so that when God calls us to follow, instead of going away tearfully, we can go away with a song on our lips because the God Movement is alive in our lives and we have been called to share it!
James tells us that if the faith we find in the sanctuary doesn’t change our lives or other lives outside of it, then what we found wasn’t really faith at all.
