February 27, 2023

We go to a small church in Brandon. It's bigger than some but smaller than the mega-churches. We are not members yet, though; for all intents and purposes, we are members of the Church as a whole because of our salvation. It's closer to home than any other that we've attended, which makes it convenient, and because it is in our neighborhood, it serves the people around us, which is good. The teaching is on target, and I like that it is expository and Holy Spirit-led and not canned. Some preachers choose to teach topically and never get into the meat and potatoes of the scriptures, so if someone doesn't study the scriptures on their own, they don't get the complete picture. Even though the church is for the congregating of the saints and we should like everyone, that's not always the case. However, Paul reminds us that it's about God, and we know that, but I find it funny that he had to remind the Romans of that truth. It shows that they weren't much different than us, making Paul's message relatable. 

What if some were unfaithful? Does their faithlessness nullify the faithfulness of God? By no means! Let God be true though every one were a liar, as it is written, “That you may be justified in your words, and prevail when you are judged.” Romans 3:3-4
