A Lively Church

You’ve probably heard the story about the man who died suddenly during the church service. When the undertaker arrived, he carried out five men before he found the right one!

Some churches have a reputation for not being very lively. They have boring worship services on Sunday, and they sort of sleepwalk through the rest of the week.

Other churches seem to be on fire, but there is little real substance to what they do. Jesus told the church at Sardis, “…I know your deeds; you have a reputation of being alive, but you are dead. Wake up! Strengthen what remains and is about to die, for I have not found your deeds complete in the sight of my God.” (Rev.3:1-2).

Here is the bottom line—a church can only be as vibrant as its members. So if you want to be a part of a lively church, first take a look in the mirror and ask yourself this question: What kind of church would this church be, if every member were just like me?
