Day 2 - 21 Day Fast

Day 2 - Pray for your church family

Ephesians 2:19-22, 1 Corinthians 12:26, Romans 12:5

Thinking of the church as a family gets complicated. Baggage from biological relationships and past experiences can cloud our understanding of what God intends a church family to be. But the Bible paints an extraordinary picture of who we are together.

The people of God are the church. We’re like a body, connected by bones, joints, blood vessels, and more. Like a biological family, we don’t get to choose who’s in the church family with us. God created this structure; He’s designed this body.

Despite our differences, we are called to be unified. So when one person suffers, the others feel it. When one person rejoices, others are lifted up. Each member of the church is integral to the next.

  • Is there anyone in the church you can’t imagine this journey without? Thank God for them and the joy they bring.
  • Has anyone in the church offended or annoyed you? Maybe a leader you disagree with or a volunteer who’s too outspoken? Think of one way you can seek unity with this person.
  • Is anyone in your church family in need? Pray for them, and ask God if there’s a way you can fulfill their need.
  • Has a wound or relationship from your past made connecting with your church family difficult? Ask God to intervene and reveal your next step.

I love my church family! Been coming to C3 since 2015 and we've had ups, downs and everything in between with ya'll. Gary's podcast was great... sometimes we fight with our family, but we always stick together! Thankful for each and every one of you!
