One of the ways the Bible describes the church is by comparing it to family. In Galatians 6:10, Paul calls it “the household of faith”. When Jesus teaches us to pray, He sets this image in our mind by teaching us to say “our Father which art in heaven”.
Day 36 –Will you pray for FBCSA to be a family of faith?
Difficult assignment for sure. Busy lives. Generational differences. Language, cultural barriers. Single adults, Senior adults, teenagers and college students, children, internationals, different worship services. Yikes! Apart from the work of the Spirit (and some serious obedience on our part) we will not know each other, much less love each other. Family is a loyalty/love that is deeper than circumstance/convenience. Family is a group of people to which we belong. Will you pray for the Spirit of God to create this in us? Will you ask Him to bless every intergenerational activity? Spring Area Fellowships? FBC Family camp at HEB? Will you ask Him to assign you someone to love as your own contribution to this miracle? “God sets the lonely in families” (Psalm 68:6)
