One Upon a Time …
1.The people turned up to church to work, because they believed that the work was theirs.
2.When they went to worship they went to work.
3.When you came to share in praise, you also came to share in sacrifice.
1.Times have changed.
2.Around the world there are still places where the church is growing as it once did.
3.But in our society many things are falling apart that we could once rely on.
29 for no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as Christ also does the church, 30 because we are members of His body.
