“STOP DATING THE CHURCH: fall in love with the family of God”

By Joshua Harris

Salvation must include a changed life. You need other Christians to help you learn. You need other Christians you can love. We need His generous love. 


Commit yourself to a local group of saved sinners. Try to love through. Not for three months; not for six months. Do it for years!


Problems in the church aren’t the biggest obstacles. The biggest problem is us!! Going away is easy; know what is harder… stay!


We need to:

It might not be a best-selling memoir, but it’s a story God loves to read!!


Throughout history, the church has been central to God’s purpose; it must be central to our lives. We must have a passion for the church and its people.


We all have a club which is our passion. What is yours? What do you think about, talk about, dream about? What do you give your time to without complaint? What do you find your identity in? What are you willing to sacrifice for? Are our priorities wrong or out of step?


We need to rescue Sunday.

 Each Sunday we need to repeat Psalm 122:1: “Let us go to the house of the LORD!”


Are we church daters or are we married to the church?


We should love what Jesus loves. If you love Jesus, simply love His Church. Your true calling is caring about what Jesus cares about.
